tranny swap

I have a 1963 c10 and it has a 350 with a mild cam and preformace lifters with a aluminum manifold a street warrior one and the tranny is a 700r4 ..that being said awhile back I messed up the 3 and 4th gear paks. My orriginal plan was to fix it but I ended up changing my mind so I have decided to just get me a new used tranny from a mecanic I know what would b my best bet with the engine I have ...

I would vote for the TH350 with a shift kit installed. You do know that your mileage is going to suffer with this swap, right?

Well, first you say it's kind of a mild build and now your concerned about the power it's putting out. Ask yourself some questions first and then decide which direction to go.

1. Am I done with the build or am I going to keep adding stuff to make it more powerful?

I think most guy's on here would like to have a strong 700r4. There is a good possibility that you can beef one up for a direct swap with the bad one you have not to mention the ease of installation over the cost of replacing it with another 3 speed (TH350, TH400, TH350C, and so on) that would require a different converter, cross member, linkage, and possibly a yoke with different spline count and trivet length. With me (old school) it's all about the money as I am a budget builder. Replacing what's bad with a new one is usually the way to go with $ in mind. You need to look at the big picture before you commit which is why your probably asking Q's on this site.
Give it time as there will be more posts to your question before it's done. Good luck!

I'd stay with the 700R4 also.
There are several Threads on here with recommended parts to beef up a 700R4. Do a search in the Trans section. For a mild SBC350 it wouldn't take much to extra for the 700R4 to hold up.

I realized that the the 700r4 should be strong enough now and yes it is a mild build but i would have asked the question of if it can handle it if my transmission wouldn't have messed up and yes the tv cable was conected and adjusted. As far as adding more to get more hp i don't think i will be doing any thing else but cosmetic stuff to it since i will be giving it to my boy.. that being said if i do swap it out for another one what is some thing i should look for because i read some where that they very depending on the year.. thanks for taking the time to help my amateur self

The van rear end is too wide for the pickup. I just dropped a 700R4 off to get rebuilt and it's $1000 for a basic rebuild. A lot of money but probably worth it in the long run.

Here's what a budget guy like me does. I'll visit 1 or two wrecking yards looking for the cleanest used "off the shelf" tranny. Take it home and pull the pan. If it looks good and clean without a bunch of crud in it (if it does I take it back and exchange it for another) slap an improver kit in it, new filter, and seals. I've done this several times over the years and have never had a problem. This can be done for half the price of new or rebuilt. I've done this with TH350's, TH400's, and a 727 mopar. I'm not recommending you do this, but being I'm a truck driver where time and money are limited, it's another option to consider.
