Replaced sparkplugs and wires, distributor cap, rotor, removed and checked fuel pump operation and filter condition(pump runs, filter clean). Replaced gasoline. Best guess, please

I have a 97 Ram 1500 4x2 and a 98 Ram 1500 4x4. The 98 is in great shape, but the transmission is shot. The 97 is in horrible shape, but the Transmission is in great shape. Any chance I can use the 97 4x2 trans in the 98 4x4 truck? ...Many Thanks

1997 4x4 1500 dodge ram 5.2 v8 manual transmission

When the head lights are on the tail lights, brake lights and rear blinkers don't work.

I replaced water pump, oil change, and a few minor tune ups. When I took off water pump, I had to take out the radiator and the fan cover in order to get to the pump. This morning I see it has leaked about a pint or two of transmission fuel but can't tell where it's coming from. More towards the front,could it be a loose hose attaching to the radiator?
