Can anyone help me find a vintage transmission to fit a early 40's Ford flathead engine?

The best places to look would be Craig's list, Google and Ebay. I think we've "talked" via email...

I used to race a Ford flathead, and in an attempt to improve drag racing times, I built an adapter to bolt up a GM 4 speed, so I don't think it would be a problem doing the same for a regular marine trans. By the way, there were many of these flatheads raced in boats Canada in the 50s and 60s. Try Kijiji in Canada.
