This adapter is designed to permit the use of the later 1964 and up small block Torqueflite 727A and the newer A518 OVERDRIVE transmissions behind the Early style Chrysler HEMI engines. The later transmissions and repair parts are more readily available and can be modified to handle much greater horsepower and torque than the original transmissions used behind these engines. The use of the overdrive unit gives the 30 to 40% better fuel economy.
THIS KIT CONTAINS:
- A PRECISION MACHINED 5/8″ 6061 T6 ALUMINUM ADAPTER PLATE (which is profiled to the contour of the bellhousing);
- A PRECISION MACHINED CRANKSHAFT SPACER AND ADAPTER PLATE (which pilots the torque converter in the center of the crank instead of the outer flange diameter of the original crankshaft) THIS ADAPTER PERMITS THE USE OF THE 426 HEMI STYLE FLEXPLATE ;
- ALL OF THE NECESSARY BOLTS and HARDWARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE YOUR INSTALLATION.
- NOTE: FLEXPLATE and CONVERTER BOLTS MUST BE OBTAINED SEPARATELY.
