Angry SHIFT KIT

Any advice on what shift kit would be best? B&M, TransGo, or Hurst etc..... Would it be wise to get the video instructions? What should I pay? Its for a '77 TH350 going into a truck behind a 350.

HEY NEO: I put a B&M type in my TH 350, one of the little check balls you have to try to keep in place moved. I bought a Transco from Sumitt Racing that came with a video, color coded parts, very clear written instruction, tech line 800 number, Sumitt's Tech Dept backup. It was easy to install and worked great. Price less than $90.00 bucks. You get what you pay for!! GOOD LUCK>>> DAVE

Cool

I have used TransGo kits for decades.

They come with good instructions.

FWIW........ the term "shift kit" is a registered trade mark of TransGo. Gil Younger has sued and won court cases over the use of the term.

Now..... you probbly wonder why I mention this? Many of us old (middleaged) tranny guys will often point this little known fact out about the term "shift kit". It is something that kind of sticks in your mind after a couple of decades of slopping around in tranny fluid.

The TransGo kit works well with TH350's and 400's. Good stuff.
