As far as looking for a tranny to mate to your 350 there are a few options. Since you mentioned 5 speed, you'll probably want an NV4500. They are kind of long (almost 19"). I'm partial to manual trannies too but I got a 4 speed for free and it has been great, and its a lot shorter.
I picked up all my conversion goodies from Advance Adapters. They also have a ton of conversion stuff - motor mounts, radiators, bellhousings, t-case adapters and more.
