Is there any major differences between auto and manual extractors? If so, what are they?

Difference would be to clear the gearbox! Especially if it was a 308 auto.

I think they may fit, not 100% sure though and it'll be brand dependant. Trimatic and 3/4 spd use the same inspection cover, same crossmember, same speedo cable so I reckon you are in with a shot at them fitting. From memory the factory pipes were the same too, only the TH400 stuff was different.

iv'e never noticed a difference, i did fit a set from a 253 manual to a 308 TH400 and they fitted, it was close to the box but not too close to cause a problem

Column shift may get in the road. Extractors normally use short bolts. Manifold should have some longer ones in the middle for hot box for aircleaner.

TH400 behind a 253? The adapter plate may have changed the geometry too.
