Well I do know that the 46 series has been on the 318 and 360 only however you could just bump up and find a 47 or 48 which the 48 was used on the diesel just be sure the mounting is the same, I would probably just get a 47 series.

If it is going into a '93 D150, then find an early 90's A518. It's a 727 with an overdrive section. Comes with a small block bolt pattern and all you have to do is rig a simple switch to engage the overdrive (no computer). If you do a 'mopar action 518', Ehrenberg has a pretty good write up about.

Like said a 46 47 or 48. I prefer you get the 46RH because it doesn't require a PCM and the OD is turned off by a switch which you can actually get from autozone but of course you can wire a little old toggler. Anyways the A518 is a 46RH actually, I really love the 46RH I believe it is a very ruggid and powerful transmission if you up the planets on it to distribute the load and change out the acumulator piston and the servos for some billet multi seal ones and do a few here there things you can really turn that into a performance transmission. Now you can just upgrade the frictions get more holding power use a 4.2 ratio kick lever with 2 3/16" bands I would use carbon but they're over 100 bucks however it's not bad they are really good. When I do my rebuild I am going for performance/heavy duty parts. Anyways yes just shoot for a 46
