i found the TCI 230000 part (http://www.compperformancegroupstore...ct_Code=230000
) to convert the BOP to Chevy pattern, do i need to get anything else? throttle cable? i really have no clue here so any help is appreciated
also. the torque converter on the 700R4 is supposedly good, can it be reused on the 200r4?
If your 2004R bellhousing doesn't have 10 bolt holes & 2 larger dowel pin holes it's not the Uni-Bell, BOP & Chevy type. You will need another driveshaft & crosmember from a 78-88 G-body car Malibu, Monte Carlo, Cutlass, Grand Prix, or Regal that came with a TH2004R. The 84 & down TH700R4 had 27 spline input shaft like all TH2004Rs. Late 84 & up TH700R4 changed to 30 spline input shaft so check to see if you can use your Torque convertor. Your TV/ThrottleValve cable & bracket from the TH700R4 will work. 2004Rs came with Chevy only, BOP only and Universal bellhousings. Here's a Pic of the front of a easy to find UniBell 2004R, bottom of page, + other Info.
