1951 Styleline, Looking to swap 200-4R for my cast iron glide

Looking into a 200-4R swap for my glide and going with a tri-5 rear. I understand the rear should go in without too much trouble. Anybody out there with suggestions for this? I know someone makes an adapter for the 235 to 200-4R. Some pics of a similar swap would be beneficial and some sound advice on avoid this, do that it will save you some time would be appreciated...

Being you have the powerglide trans, it uses an adapter to connect it to the block. use that adapter with the 200-R4 and it will bolt up.. Just dont scrap the old torque tube glide. there few and far between now, and the powerglide rear is 3.73 ratio where as the stick is 4.11.. Stick cars can benefit from the higher gears with modern highways.. I have a '51 Fleetline 4dr, with the powerglide. Not too many got built like that
