Looking for a C4 700R4 tail shaft housing



Looking for a C4 700R4 tail shaft housing

Postby ironman417 » September 25th, 2012, 8:48 pm

I bought a 84 vette for my BBC project but it didn't have a motor or trans in it
I have a 700R4 from my trans am that I am gonna drop in it so I can move it around on
It's own power until I save money for a 6 speed. If you have the tail shaft housing
Or know where I can score one cheap please let me know

It would be helpful if others knew where you lived roughly, since distance will have an effect. You can click on "User Control Panel" at the top of most pages and edit your profile to include your location.

Craigslist, but you are probably already are watching that. If that is not quick enough, surely a trans shop would have some extras that would only cost a few bucks.

Id also put out this thought, any big block will have significantly more potential torque than a 700r4 is likely to handle over a long term without failing.
a 4l80e or a TH400 if you don,t want over drive makes a good deal more sense, both transmissions are easily able to handle several hundred pounds of torque MORE than a similarly built 700r4 will simply because the internal components are designed for higher torque loads, the reason I bring this up is Ive seen DOZENS of guys build hot 383-427 SBC engines and within months the transmission needs to be replaced due to the increased heat and torque levels, which are not even close to what a good big block could produce

BELOW youll see related random threads and sub linked info,that will take you a couple hours of well spent time to read thru.
TIME VERY WELL SPENT IN AVOIDING PROBLEMS WITH YOUR BIG BLOCK ENGINE SWAP

if its a 700r4 it has either 27 or 30 splines
in an 1986 its more likely but not sure to be 27 splines, in theory 1987 and newer are 30 spline
