Trimatic box, Powerglide shift

Hi,

Mate has a HR which has been converted to a trimatic gearbox but has the 2 speed column shift auto still attached.

The gearbox is thus not connected.

What is required to link the two together?

Thanks in advance for your help

Converting a HR from manual to auto

I'm currently in the market for a HR and all I seem to across is manuals and after losing my right leg in an accident I am no longer able to drive manuals.

If I were to buy a manual, how hard is it and how much can I expect to pay for a conversion to a powerglide or other auto?

Many thanks.

Jason

Inside HEI module

Thought I'd pull this apart while I had a few minutes, would appear the IC is toast. This is a generic module, not Bosch. Would be interesting to compare.

HEI module tech

Does any body electrically minded have a diagram of the internals of the HEI module? It's only a curiosity as I've seen a number of these fail and every time it's due to poor earthing of the module to the engine block/chassis. I'm curious as to the path of failure caused by the poor earth.

Trans seems to sit too high, HQ coupe

Hi guys, I've bolted a 308 and t350 through salsbury from a HJ 4 door into my HQ coupe, using a new trans crossmember (ordered for coupe, 308, th350) from Rod Shop. I'm not sure if I've done something wrong, but the trans output is sitting very high, which leads to tailshaft contacting the tunnel.....
is there an obvious solution or a common fault I'm possibly making??
