Out of curiosity, why would you want to do that? I find that first gear in a six speed is only good for pulling stumps.

It's not possible. The gearboxes are made by different companies, the gear widths are probably different, the shaft diameters are probably different, I could go on.

The use of oxen to pull the stump would be more effective.

If you want a stump puller, get a 6spd trans and a 4.8 R&P....or even just the 4.8 with the 5spd.

This is like asking how I can adapt a PS3 game to run in my Nintendo64 - it's not going to happen.
