turbo 400 tailshaft housing ?

Does anyone know if the tailshaft housing from a t-475 is a direct bolt on for a T-400?
Thanks-Bob

extension housing

As far as i know, except for lengths, the 475 ext. hsg should be the same. The 475, i thought , just had straight cut gears in the backend for heavy duty use. Don't confuse this with the375. It has a different size(smaller) bushing/smaller yoke.

We are on the same page with the 475/375. I think the 475 has straight cut on the gears involved with 1st and 2nd gear. I believe the 475 uses bearings in the tailshaft housing instead of bushings. I have a 400 with a damaged tailshaft housing and a friend ( 50 miles away) has a blown 475 with a good tailshaft housing, so you can see where I am headed with the questions. Length certainly would be an item but will look at it on the weekend.

Cool

the T-475 was used in big motor homes.

The 475 tail housing does have bearings and usually a bolt on parking brake assembly with a dedicated drive yoke and brake drum assembly.

The drive shaft yoke from your T-400 will NOT fit inside the bearings of the motor home style tail housing. the bearing ID is smaller than the large diameter t-400 yoke.

I seem to recall a length issue too. The 475 tail housing is longer.

We use the 475 tails for off road racers. We machine the yoke to fit the bearings and a groove in the yoke to retain the yoke in the tail housing( no bolt in the center of the yoke to the out put shaft)

Thanks Tony

It is off a motorhome. My friend used the 4 bolt motor a few years ago after the trans gave up. From your info and what I have read I am pretty sure it won't work out but it was a good thought as the trans is free. I suppose I will drag it home as you never know when there is some hard parts you can use. I really need a bigger bone yard.
