If anybody has a converter for the 400 let me know. Also need a serial # for a 82 chevy Caprice, mine got accidently scratched off and also lookin for some 17 in wheels (5 hole of course). By the way, got some 15" truck tires for sale, tread about 24%, good for burnouts.

Just got me a nice 1973 Plymouth Sebring. Kind of like a Roadrunner. When I get done with this 'bad boy', not much will catch it- perhaps a new Mustang Mach 1 Mustang or Vette.

Up here, if the cops want to chase somebody they have to first plug the squad-car in overnite. And choppers don't fly well in blizzards. And we only elect cops with big warm wives. That way us civilians can get a reasonable headstart after breakfast. :)

The chevy 350 will bolt up to a turbo 350 and turbo 400 tranny.The alingment pins can be moved to what you need.I'm sure you know the rest of the drill.Good luck. Let me know if I can help.Also the turbo 400 will accept just about any shift kit on the market.B&M is the best for your money.

I may be running into this soon...

This will be the Wifes new ride...It only needs an engine...The question is...Will ANY Chevy 350 bolt up to the 400 tranny that is in it???...

Thanks for any help!

Hey Salmoneye,what year is the suburban? Pretty much all g.m. products are interchangeable.Any small block and big block should bolt up to a turbo 400 traney.The alignment pins can be moved up or down to fit what you need.Are you going to put the engine and tranny in together or pull the old motor and leave the trans in? This could make the difference in an easy or pain in the a!! job.Let me know if I can lend a hand.I have done this alot.

Supposed to be swapping in a motor in a month or so...Planned on leaving the tranny in place...WIlling to rethink that...

Remember though...This will be done in the yard where she sits...Not even a tree for shade or to assist with a come-along...

Could make a tripod out of trees or pipe and hang the chain fall or come-along off of that.The only pain in leaving the tranny in is getting the 2 top bellhousing bolts out then back in again.The rest is a piece of cake.Keep me posted.Wish I was near by to be able to come over and lend a hand.Sorry.All I charge is a bottomless coffee.

HEY, Careful Here......Jimbob    Posted 03-15-2003 at 18:43:19       [Reply]  [No Email]
The '400' trans was available for Pontiac, Olds & Caddy as well. These will not mate up with the top bolts to Chevy blocks, thus you need a Chevy based Turbo 400 or the adapter plate for Pontiac, Olds & Caddy. Next, the car may need the rare short tailshaft type- Turbo 400s were manufactured in short or long tailshaft versions.
