  2. Transmission and DriveLine Questions
    I have a 1964 C10 shortbed that I plan to go with a small block and a 700R4 behind it. Can anyone tell me whether I need a long tail piece or a short one on the transmission? Will either one work when I will need a custom driveshaft anyway? Are the earlier 700R4's easier to install with less...

    I picked up a 61 C10 in fairly good condition. I have replaced the wheel cylinders, clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder. While under the truck, I saw the speedometer drive gear and housing were not there. The hold down bolt had been broken off in the tail shaft and the hole for the gear...

  10. Transmission and DriveLine Questions
    I've got a 1968 C10 with a 327 that's got around 370-410 hp and unknown amount of torque (guessing the same). It currently has a TH350 3-speed auto in it and a 2.?? rear diff. I wanted to see what suggestions y'all had for a swap that would better fit this engine and hp output. The transmission...
