adapter plate

Hi i know you can get an adapter plate to fit a turbo 350 trans to a 308 trimatic pattern block.

But what about a trimatic trans to a turbo patern block,is there an adapter for that or does the block have to be re drilled.

What do you think would be the cheapest way out,and is the trimatic trans the same length as a turbo trans,or will the tailshaft have to be changed.

Thanks.............

Hi

The Rod shop does an adaptor plate to mount a trimatic to a turbo block just over $300 when i got one. The adaptor plate will push the trans back about 14mm so the engine can meet the mounts properly. The only down side is that no one makes a dust cover to fit that setup.

Cheers

I haven't fitted a cover as yet and so far no problems. Spoke to the guys at the local transmission place and they semed to think it wasn't a major drama not having one. I will try to make something up when i get some time though.

Your local rego authorities might have a problem with there being no dust cover.
You wouldn't want someones arm to get caught in your flywheel when you run them over would you :-P
Also, there was about 4 different factory extension housings on the t350, which one do you have?

I havnt got the box yet the motor is turbo pattern,what do you think would be the best turbo box to go for with the least conversions.

The cars last transmission was a wb trimatic so the crossmember is to suit that,do you know if there is a turbo box the same size as the trimatic.
