He’s been a FBBO member since 2015. Hee hee, I’m sure he knows his 727’s, or at least knows in his heart :thumbsup: that :bananadance:‘thems are the best!’:bananadance:

Ya, I do think I know 727's pretty well. They are a great trans. I'm sure other guys know a lot more though. I have a few combinations that I know work really well for drag racing and a couple for HP street cars.

Gotta pull the 727 in my coronet this winter. Any suggestions for a street 472 hemi?

Obviously a joke.
You know the 727 is an excellent piece.
Back in the day the drag racers started going to a Glide. But with those you need to replace everything inside the case with aftermarket super duty parts to handle 600 HP.
A 727 just needs red bands & clutches or equal and a good valve body. Just my opinion.
See you know your stuff a tad.

If you are going for gas mileage, 440 wouldn't be my choice. Get a real light import with a little 4 cyl.
Although I built a fairly HP 360 to replace the 318 in my van/tow vehicle that got at least 3-4 MPG better than the 318. So....?

Hey Mopar Geniuses', new here and could use some help. I've got a 400BB in front of a 727 push-button trans (in a 31 Tudor Model A). Casting #F2464424 0967415. The Dodge dealer and local trans shop can't tell me anything about the history of this. Long story short, the speedo cable was leaking at the trans, and someone had siliconed it, and the cable needs to be replaced (leaking badly). After having it apart, it doesn't look like the ones online with the availability to turn it to set different speeds. On the gage side, it's a 5/8 ID push on with small square inner cable (6' long). I have a feeling this cable might have been made (thus the leak). Any help would be super appreciated! Cheers, Mike
