    Thoughts on a short term trans behind healthy torque, a 2004R or TH350?

    I have the T-350 from, Turbo Action, that we ran in our Stock Eliminator car. It has a 2.75 1st gear, all light weight components, and is built to handle over 400 hp. We had this behind our '70 W-31 350, that went 11.84 @ 112+ in a 3600# car. It is physically lighter than a stock 350; we had to...

    My 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass S

    Did you take those measurements with the car on the ground? If you did it with the rear end hanging it will change the measurements do to the suspension movement. Also, be sure to check those control arm bushings. A little wear in those can cause the rear to shift.

    My 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass S

    There's a number of things to check. How are your control arm bushings? Also see if there is a difference from left to right on the distance between the rocker panel and the frame rail.

    455 out of Ninety-Eight Going into 1980 Cutlass G Body

    What year is the 455/T-400? A 98 would have had a medium length T-400, as stated above; however, The driveshaft would have a long yoke on the front, probably machined smooth part way on the inside to seal on an "O" ring on the output shaft, and a CV joint and a "companion flange" on the rear...

    My 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass S

    Two things to check. See if you have fluid coming out of the line to the rear brakes AT the distribution block. If you do, go to the flexible brake hose on the rear end and see if you have fluid going to it and coming out of it. These hoses are known to deteriorate over time.

    OLDs intake valley pain, I mean pan

    All of the ports on the early one are bigger and the crossover has added material on the driver's side. It would seal better on early heads. What # head are you using? Actually, I would use the MS99471, which is two individual pieces for the port area. On our old Stock Eliminator W-31 engines we...
