more more, give me more!!


what is early? mine is a '69. the only reference to pg I've ever noticed was if it is aluminum or not, but I've never seen a none aluminum pg. how would I know if I had fine or course without the other one to judge it against? assume I'm ignorant about powerglides and sock it to me.

you have to change the input shaft to a turbo spline and install a stator bushing for the new shaft.Summit,Jegs,coan etc all have the shafts you need...

Cool

As papadaddio mentioned you need a turbo splined shaft to fit the 350/400 converters.


Also mentioned: there needs to be a bushing in the stator support for the turbo splined shaft.

Another option is the converter needs the bushing added to the internals to provide support and alignment. Then the PG stator does not need a bushing
