One item about the use of a late design filter in the early trannys..... your valve body ( if it is early unit) will NOT have a threaded hole for the late design filter retaining bolt.
The late design filter uses a shouldered bolt to hold the filter to the valve body...... although the filter will move a round a bit.
Second........ the late design filter uses a separate pick up tube with O-ring that goes between the case and the flat filter. This tube would NOT be in the gasket / filter kit you bought.
You may have to find a local tranny shop or parts supplier to purchase the early design filter for your t-400

The early 400's have a different filter than the later ones...1966 or 1967 was the changeover year IF I remember correctly.
The kit you bought came with the later one......
Your 400 can be converted but WHY ? ?
You just need a early filter.

65 Impala Transmission Question
I got a 65 Impala with a 400 Hydramatic transmission.I needed to replace the gasket on the pan.I bought the kit that comes with the Gasket and the transmission filter.When I took the pan off today I was looking in there and cannot find where the filter goes.Do I have to take something else apart after I get the pan off?Also,I was wondering what was the best way to install the gasket for the transmission pan?I just want to make sure I install it right.Thanks alot,
