I was just recently given a 86 Camaro in great shape, catch is it has a rod knocking 2.8 and a no gear but 1st works 700R4.
I`m going to drop a small block in it and use a 700R4 I was given out of a chevy van that had a 4.3, then afterwards use it as my daily driver.
My question is, are both these tranny`s the same lenth? are the mounting points the same? or will I need the crossmember from a V8 camaro that came with a 700? Any help is appreciated.

I did one of these a few years ago and if my geezer memory works it went like this.

The trans is the same length. You will have to use the Camaro tailshaft housing on the van trans. There may be a speedo adaptability proble. You will need to use the van torque convertor also.
