TH350 or TH700R4 ??

Okay guys...give me some of your wisdom. I am building a weekend cruiser, 1964 International pickup. 350 chevy, mild build approx 350HP. This truck will prob never see the interstate. Will have a chevy 12 bolt rear with 3:73 gears.

I have both a Th350 non-lockup and an 1986 TH700R4. Which ever one I decide to run, I am going to rebuild and install a shift kit and will have to run a 2000 to 2200 stall converter.

Whick one would you run ?

Thanks in advance for your advice and opinions.
Bill

I would go with the 700R4. Gas is only going up. You will drive it farther eventually, and you will enjoy the added mileage. For me it's a no brainer. 700 all the way.

Thanks for the advice on the 700R4. I have a question...I not real sure what year 700R4 I have. Somewhere between 84 and 86. I noticed on the rebuild kits, you need to know the year. How can I tell which one I have ?

Look in the Knowledge Base or Wiki section for Info on IDing it from the stamped #'s
I suggest using an 87-93 700R4 core, they have all the Factory upgrades.

Pull the pan if there is a tube that runs front to back it is post 87 if there isn't any tube then it is pre 87 all raybestos, and alto kits are split in this manner if a manufactorer says any different don't buy your kit from them they will not have a quality product

Thanks for the info guys, I dropped the pan, no tube and a ton of stuff in the pan and on the magnet. So I scrapped it. I have a good Th350 that I am going to install. Its going to be an in town cruiser, so really dont need the overdrive.
