Shorty Powerglide in a flatbottom V-drive boat questions
This is my first post, after lurking for awhile to see if I had a reasonable question(s). I am putting a shorty Powerglide in a flatbottom V-drive boat (RaysonCraft). Last time was 30 some years ago and I need some refresher help. The pics(sorry, Photoshop is not my forte!) show original on the left and a manual valve body on the right, I do not know who the modifier is, wish I did. It was used a rear engined dragster. It was previously used with a Transbrake, the only info he could offer was,"did not have to use brake to backup "? I do not have a use for this in this application.Questions: IGNORE yellow circles.
1. Will "2" be eliminated or transferred to the manual body?
2. Will "4" transfer to "5" with only gasket, could something be missing at "5"?
3. Number "3" came with this unit,can I assume this stays, or not, because,
4. how do I modify this area and have a regular manual valve body??
Thanks to anyone that can advise,
