The Ford automatic transmissions built in 84 would hold 300 hp. However, your question is very open ended. Your trans may not due to age and normal wear and tare. Also, if your truck has posi can be determined by jacking up the rear end, putting the trans in neutral. Then have one of your friends hold one of the rear tires while you turn the other. If it is posi, then his tire will try to turn the same direction as you turn your tire. If not, then it probably not.

Hope that helps.

Good luck.

You also may want to know how much torque you have, and how much the trans can handle, not just HP
