When it comes to the extended block hemis, your choices are better now than ever. Wilcap makes an adapter for the Chrysler 727 or 904. Their adapter uses a modified small block Chrysler transmission case and no modification of the block is required. HotHeads makes an adapter for the Chevy 4 speed and they have another adapter available for the '48 and earlier Ford manual trans. Take your pick.

One minor point. Please refrain from using all caps when typing. It's considered yelling.

If you are lucky you may find a "Drag Machine" adapter to dual range Hydro like the one I run in my Willys. That would be the ultimate period combo but my adapter is the only one I have ever seen! I got it as a graduation present from B&M Hydro in '67. Othewise I'm afraid you are stuck w/ a manual tranny (Hot Heads & Wilcap) or some machine work on a 727 w/ a Wilcap adapter.

Wilcap's 727 adapter;

28 Chrysler

I know that the post on this car was a long time ago but on the off chance the member is still around I have a question. I wondered if you still had the original third member? Mine has locked up and I am having lots of trouble locating parts. Thanks.

You mean my '56 Olds rear end third member? I plan on keeping my 3.23 pumpkin as backup for my new 3.54 one. As you know, they are very hard to find. I suggest that if you haven't already committed to the '56, get a '57 - '60 instead. They are supposedly stronger and Richardson and others still make replacement parts for them including a full range of ring and pinion ratios.

Welcome to the site D.C. Sounds like you have a great project in the works. How about some pics of what you are starting with and start a project journal so we can follow along.

Actually alwalker is looking for a stock rear end for his 28.

Oh, from my hot rod? That is a '36 Willys, not a Phord. And the stock rear end has been gone for, oh, about 40 years!
