I have applied GearVendors to several vehicles, it depends on the transmission type in the vehicle. Import transmissions are out of luck, but domestic rear drives, ie T 400, C-6 and Torque Flight are covered.
The cost and complexity of updating to newer OD type transmissions is prohibitive on a vintage MH, unless money is no object.
A point of reference, a 4L80 OD will bolt to the 454 or GM diesel but it requires a stand alone computer to control it. A very good price on such a project would be around $4000, I think one could buy a lot of fuel for the exta money. The key to living with the old 3 speed is drive slow and keep the RPMs under 3000 in gassers, 2500 in diesels.
