    I've often thought of just putting in a lower 1st gear set and then changing the rear to a 3.23 from 3:54. Has anyone ever went that route?

    I was offered a smokin' deal on a rebuilt 727 with loads of extras from a fallen 'Cuda project, so I guess I'll be sticking with the 727 for a while.

      I just got done fitting the o/ d trans in my 71 charger . The trans and engine are out of a 00 ram van 3500. I modified the trans mount out of the van and the charger to make one. Here are some pics I am not the best welder but effective

        If that is a butt weld between the center and 2 outer pieces, I wouldn't trust it.
        You welds have almost no penetration.
        Be careful...

        Correct. I did notice that also and added support pieces to cap off the ends that it is welded on all sides and bottom installed really solid .I beat the heck out of it with a 2 lb. Mall no breaks no cracks . I will find out when I give it the buisness.
