Question turbo 350- 6" to 9" tailshaft ???

is there any other major difference between the 6" turbo 350 and 9" turbo 350? i have a 350 out of a chevelle, and the 350 in my truck is going out and i could switch the tailshafts out and convert one to the other. does anybody have any ideas??? im just not so sure that itll be safe.

the shafts interchange with no problems, swap it in, reassemble and bolt on the tail housing for that shaft.

Doublevision is right. The only difference in the shafts and housings are the lengths. You do have to disassemble the trans to swap them.

alright. ive already got the short 350 torn apart and i took it up to the carwash and powerwashed the case, so it looks brand new. Now all ive gotta do is remove the long 350 from my truck and tear it down, etc. any tips on reassembling it??? this is the first time ive actually taken them apart and put them back together. i have this manual (Haynes) that shows step by step directions, but if yall have done stuff like this before than yall could help me a lot better than pics.


thanks,
classic

Follow the step by step procedures outlined in the manual do not skip any steps and make sure that you do not force anything. Buy a good rebuild kits with clutches and steels. have a table set up for assembly and make sure to keep everything operating room clean and you should be fine. good luck.

I usually use regular parts cleaner and soak the new clutches and steel in fresh trans fluid prior to assembly.
