x2 on the novak site. tons of great info. from what i gathered from that site and others, you use the ford manual transmission bell housing which you have to drill to fit your transmission, your T150 with the front shaft ground down 5/8in (IIRC), a special pilot bushing that novak makes, and then the novak ford V8 motor mounts. please take pics and do a write up on here when you do the swap!

Don't use an adapter on the bell housing, get a 351 W and back it up with Ford T-18 trans and bell housing/clutch...
Worry about the trans to transfer case adapter, not the engine to transmission mating.
