B.O.P trans to Chevy eng

Has anyone ever used one of those adapters that allows the use of a BOP TH-400 to a Chevy engine? Any issues? Does the torque convertor bolt up ok with the extra clearance of the adapter?

Thanks

Not only have I used them. I have made them. The block/trans locator pins are in the same location on all these trans. Chev+67 later BOP and Cadillac. A simple piece of 1/8" plate, a means to cut it (torch, band saw, p-cutter), a 3/8 drill and a couple of weld nuts and you have an adapter.

The torque convertor is spaced the equal amount with 1/8" washers between the flexplate and convertor.

Cool. I'm looking at getting this one.

Trans-Dapt Performance Products 0060 - Trans-Dapt Performance Transmission Bellhousing Adapters - Overview - SummitRacing.com

Anything else I need to be aware of? The trans is off an Olds 455, & it will be bolted behind a 327 SBC

They work fine. I've used them to bolt a BOP engine to a Chevy tranny and vice versa. I've even used one to bolt a Pontiac 455 to a 4WD tranny/transfer case in a Chevy Blazer. No probs.
