Truck 727, will it work ???Truck 727, will it work with my 360??
I am having a hard time locating a 727 for my 360 which I plan to drop into my '73 Dart. A friend suggested that I look at pickup truck 727s, will this work with a 2 door vehicle?? If so what years will interchange or are modifications required? I also plan to use a floor shifter...Any help would be appreciated.
It will work just fine just get one from a 2wd a 4wd will also work if you change the tail shaft
As long as it's a 318/360 727 and has the long tailshaft it'll work. Have a look at a car transmission and compare where the linages go on to a truck one just in case some might not have revisions for that.
If you intend to use a factory floor shifter, the truck tailhousing won't have the drilled boss for the bellcrank bracket.
One thing to look for since you want to use a floor shift is the mounting ears for the linkage bracket. Some truck trannys have the bracket, some do not. Same thing with cars actually. Good luck with your search, Barry
for some reason known only to mother mopar, Ive found more 72-78 slant six truck 727's with the mounting bosses then any other truck 727
slant six 727's ????
yup truck didn't get the 904 till (i think )the 1980 model year.
