    possible leak spot on 727?

    I've noticed some fluid around my trans mount and wondering if it could be coming from the opening where you remove the snap-ring on the tail brg as shown in pic.

    valves floating?

    I've got what seems to be a basically stock 1972 440 in my 68 charger with a 727 trans. The 440's history was unknown to me but after compression check, etc, I concluded the motor was good enough for me for now. But, It has a problem and starts missing at about 4300 rpm.

    440 rear main seals

    My wonderful running 440 has developed a small oil leak from near the rear main seal. I don't think it is coming from the main seal itself but the aluminum bridge/saddle/journal that holds the bottom half of the seal. It has seals/gaskets on the sides and I'm thinking and hoping that one of them...

    8.75 yoke/u joint questions

    I'm trying to put my drive shaft in and keep running into problems.

The holes in the yoke do not appear to be threaded, but they...
