Are all Big Block 727's the same?  I found a good deal on a 727 that came out of a truck with a 400 (late '70's...) and would be looking to put it into my 1970 Challenger.  Will this work?  It would be a shame to spend the money and find out I wasted it! 


Thanks for the help,


Challengerguy

The tail shaft and housing are not the same. The pick up trans doesn't have a slip yoke type shaft and has a shorter housing.

Thanks for the info.  I've gotta say that in the couple of months that I've been reading the discussions here, you respond to allmost every one.  It really helps out when us MOPAR fans have people like you and Mad Mike to talk to.  Thanks again for always having time for the "dumb" questions!!

Wrong, not all trucks have the shortie 727.  I have two long shaft 727's that came out of a 77, and 78 dodge 1/2 ton pick up.  It measure the same as a b,e,c body 727's.  The super cabs have a shortie, my 86 has a shortie.  Visually look.  Don't assume.

dear challengerguy,


    the transmision will work with your challenger as long as you have an 383-440 engine in it. i my self have a 440 and 727 tranny from an 1969 power wagon that im putting in my '72 dodge charger.The difference between my 727 and yours is all mid 70's and up 727's came as a lock up style. so if you get it rebuilt i do believe they can take that feature out(i think it helps with tranny slipage, not really sure.) but if they cant take it out or if you build it yourself make sure the valvebody and torque converter is for a lock up style 727.


                                               sincerly,


                                    arron,
