Thanks for the replies,
I installed the tranny on Saturday and so far it seems to be o.k. It was used, it was in my 68 nova when I bought it. I know, someone installed the long tail shaft tranny and cut the driveshaft!! The kid told me it has a shift kit and by the looks of it, it seems to have the plate in it like the one in a Transpak kit. but it doesn't really shift that hard. It's been sitting for a few years and I installed new front and rear seals, filter and threw in some $2 conditioner. Wish me luck.
