I'm thinking about when I do the transmition on my RC putting a A518 overdrive unit in. Where do I find the adaptor to put one of these in? (Or is it a custom fab job) Here's the specs on my truck 74 RC 440 (currently) 727 (Currently)203. I would like to go 440 a518 241. Is this posible? ???

JVX (I think thats the name) makes a 1/2" adaptor plate, with flexplate. I think it costs around $500+ for the adaptor. If you decide to go with the adaptor, I have one from a project I decided to go a different direction on. $450 and it's yours! Also, you can get an ultra bell, cut the stock bellhousing off and install the ultra bell. I don't know what they cost?

Sure, you could get the trans/t-case out of a later rc or pickup through 93. Also could run a np205 behind the 518 if desired. Sounds like a good idea. Only drawback is cost of the big-block to small-block adapter and the 518. Would allow use of 4.10 gears and stock tires. Would cruise at 90 mph with 3.55 gears. 8)
