Tranny Questions

I need some help with my drivetrain, and it all comes down to my tranny. I am going to be swapping my engine soon for a new crate engine, and I am also going to be rebuilding my rearend gears but that depends on whether I put a bored 350 in or a big block 396 or 427 (in a chevy). Now I have another problem, I don't wanna choose my gears until I have my tranny problem solved.

I am running a 700R4 and I have literally beat the heck out of that tranny and it just keeps going. I love it! I have the 4 speed plus my overdrive so I am getting amazing mileage and I know that my 700R4 will bolt up to a bored 350, but I need to know if a 700R4 will bolt up to a big block or not. Does anyone know if it will? I've had people tell me it will and people tell me it wont, so if someone knows, tell me please.

Also, what is a TH400? I am fairly sure it is a big block tranny, but is it a 3 speed or is it a 4 speed or is it like a tranny for a big block with the same overdrive and gears like a 700R4?

Thanks for the help

Cheers

yes a 700r4 will bolt up to a big block. a th400 is a big brother to the th350 it has a higher first gear than the th350 and it is a 3 speed trans. It is also substantially tougher, although it takes a bit more power to turn.

the 700r4 has the lowest first gear out of all three trannys.

the 700r4 if i remember correctly has 4th ratio of.70 to1

the th350 and 400 both have 1 to 1 3rd gear
