trans spacers

Post by hemidude354 » Sun Sep 19, 2010 11:58 am

got a question why did all hemis that were running automatics behind them require an adapter and a spacer :reason for asking is because it looks like some early pushbutton 727s and so on would bolt right up,

Because of the extended crank flange.Needed clearance for the nut and bolt method of
attatching the flywheel/flex plate,and provides for starter to bolt on.727 will not bolt up.
Get an adapter from T.R.Waters.

Fot the past 18 monthts I've been using my Hemi for mock up of headers,throttle linkage,etc.
Pulled it out for rebuild 3 weeks ago.Engine now together and put on my T.R.Waters adapter
3 hours ago.Excellent workmanship and quality.Highly reccomended.Am a very satisfied customer.

Thank you for the kind words.

The early (59 60 61 62) sb trans will bolt on, as those motors also had the extended crankshaft. The problem is ( to the best of my knowledge) that there are no 8 bolt torque converters.
You will save money in the long run buy using an adapter ( be it one of mine, Hot Heads, Wilcap or one of several others) and a modern transmission.
Early hemi to late sb Mopar trans adapters. Precision billet parts for early hemis.
