Post picked up TH350, PG -> TH350

Greetings,

I picked up a used TH350 tranny from 1976 V8 Caprice station wagon with 64k miles on it (at least, that's what the odometer said).

The tranny looked clean, the fluid color - bright red, no bad smell. It almost looked like it had a recent rebuild. It will replace PG in my 67 Camaro.

Does anyone have any idea what RPM rating the stall convereter was on that Caprice? Would it be ok to use in my Camaro?

Car's specs: 350 engine, Q-Jet carb, unknown set of headers, floor shifter, primary use - street, week-end rider.

Thanks!

Everyone knows that the Caprice is heavier than your Camaro. The converter is for a heavier vechicle. If you wallet can stand it........I would suggest buying a new converter rated at 2000-2200 rpms.

Money well spent $$$

Thanks for a quick reply!

Would my converter from PG work with TH350?

I have found a few inexpensive street torque converters from jegs and summit. Some of them say in description: th350 with small or large bolt pattern flex plate.

So I won't be able to tell which pattern my stock 350 engine has until I take off my PG?

There are also 10", 11" and 12" converters - again it should be based on the flex plate?

Thanks for advice!
