Listen to tech on the trans advise, the OD is heaven, especially for a street rod that's going to see lots of use. And everyone jumps to the 700 but the overlooked TH200 4R is stronger out of the box, and has a far nicer gear spread. The only real drawback is the 27 spline input shaft which makes converter selection a little more difficult and sometimes tricky. You will see 200/700 converters available but don't get confused and think that any 700r4 converter will work, its only pre 87 I believe that share the same 27 spline, later 700's went to 30.

Hi stefan, I've owned my '41 chevy for 46 years. peice by peice it has been a work in progress. In 1969 i put a '57 chevy rear end in it, its still under there! Today i'm swithching transmissions. I broke the last 200r4! no fault of the trans. you will most likely cut out the old trans xmember, the forward gusets that go to the frame will be PACKED FULL of dirt and gravel!! or, most are. so check out the frame also and clean it out some how. have fun!

Well, A week later and the frame is back from the dry stripper(New England Dry Stripping).$280.oo bucks and the frame looks nice.I then sprayed the frame with epoxy primer from eastwood company.This is just to protect it from the elements.I have to do some welding.So when all is completed I will be painting the frame black.Also put in a order for my CE front suspension crossmember,motor mounts,trannny mount and radiator mount.Hopefull this weekend I will start to assmbly process.I'll update the thread with pictures of the frame.To and from the dry stripper.

Just a word of caution dont spray the epoxy unless its at least 65degrees it wont stick to the metal very well and it'll give you problems later on...
