TH200C to Powerglide swap?

any ever changed out a th200c 3speed auto for a Powerglide? how easy is it, i know a Powerglide will swap right out for a th350 with no mods to the crossmember or driveshaft. and a TH350 with a 6" tail will be a direct swap without any mods for the th200c. any thoughts?

Hi
You'll need to change the slip yoke.

I'd go with a 350C, goes right in with minimal changes.

you are mostly correct on the power glide. Early aluminum glides were shorter and had a course spline on the out put shaft.

Bolt in a fresh t-350 trans in place of the t-200 trans and be done with it. This was a common swap back in the 1980s when a t-200 trans failed at low miles.

Edit: On other item on the glide is the linkage. Glides usuallly did NOT have a bolt on shifter linkage arm.

The TV linkage on the glide would need to be dealt with too as it works backwards to the typical more modern trans. Glide linkage for TV is pushed , not pulled
