The PG is popular on the track when the motor's power band is matched to the RPM range that the car will see. Fewer shifts make for less lost time. That does NOT make it a good street trans, however. Why would you want only a 1.76:1 first gear in a heavy car?

junior stocker Yes, you can swap to the shorter planetary setup, and extension housing. But, why not rebuild it yourself, they are very easy to do; the hardest thing is getting the steel speedometer gear off the tailshaft. You do know that you will have to swap out essentially the entire rotating parts assemblies? And, be careful not to mix and match 1.82 and 1.76 first gear ratio parts. Just happen to have a 25" Glide that came from a 63" 409 car; so I've hung onto it for many years waiting for just the right buyer to come along; someone looking for the numbers correct setup.

powerglide

hi guys i am workin on a 63 impala ss with my dad it has a aftermarked 350 with the original powerglide tranny. it was realy worn out so he got it rebuild and the guy screwed him over and f***ed it all up and what ever. but when he bought the car he got an extra powerglide with it but it is a later style non duel pump and has a longer tail peace with a diffrent spline. so now to the question lol i was thinking that we could just pop off the tails on them and the shaft and switch them is that possible and yes we know a th350 or an overdrive is better but this is what we have so thanks

joe
