Any GM pattern T5 will bolt to your bellhousing... Saginaw, Muncie and Borg Warner (T5 in this case) should be alike.

As mentioned, there are many applications and differences to know before you choose one.

Here's the most comprehensive T5 information I've found... heavy on the learning, but a small headache now is better than a giant headache later...

You guys almost missed the really good news. "Bruno is working on the truck", Right On!
Bruno, my T-5 is out of an S10 and the gearshift comes out of a square hole in the top of the front of the tail shaft housing. It is more centred than your Saginaw and further ahead.
Plan 'B' could be heat up your Saginaw gearshift and bend it forward if you don't have to move it too far.
Good to see you digging into that truck.

Default x2 Bruno...glad you are back to work on the truck

I have a NV3500 in a 95 Chevy half ton with a 350....it seems larger than the t-5 apparently handles the 350 with no problem... I got the truck for parts for a build my grandson was doing and there it sits.... lol..
