    Hey guys, I have a question regarding a transmission swap. I have a 1985 ElCo Conquista. It had a rebuilt 350sb transplanted after the factory 305 died. The transmission is a 200R4, and it's started to rattle and lag, unless I really slam down the gas pedal. I was considering just getting a...

    Hi everyone I am new to the thread and need some information. I own an 84 el camino, I am in the process of swapping a 1994 LT1 350 into it I will be running the original TH350C transmission. My main question is, what would it take to make the rear end from a 1999 2wd s10 blazer (or any late...
  5. Wanted Items
    I'm looking for an inexpensive posi/limited-slip carrier for my car for the budget car-building race I'm working on it for. I'd ideally like one with a good 3.XX gear & pinion, but just the carrier would work. Would definitely prefer a 3-series carrier. It's a normal 7.5" 10-bolt 26-spline rear...

    What is the most economical way to get lower RPM on the hiway? Currently have stock Muncie 4 speed and RPMS seem hight at 65 MPH on freeway. Mechanic suggests switching to 5 speed tranny. How about rear end gears? cheaper? easier? Any comments appreciated.

    Was looking up 8.5" 10 bolt rear ends that i could possibly get the ring and pinion out of, if not the whole carrier too. Ran across this website and it caught my eye because there are TONS of truck my way that are considered junk to people...

    As usual I find myself way up the stream without a paddle and many times I question whether my butt is even in a canoe. I have an 84 SS that is my son's car. We were going to bring the car to the shop next week to get the rear rebuilt before it blew. It had some wobble but because it's also...

    So, now I am somewhat confused. I understand the general workings of a rearend, but I have never been inside one myself. I have never heard reference to "2 series" and "3 series" before. Does this reference the approximate break between the 2._ _ ratios and the 3._ _ ratios, as they came from...
