It's about time!
Somebody had to do it sooner or later, it really is good news.
I want to see pix all the way through the install from bare bones to complete.

The 727 small block trans has the right bell housing pattern but an adapter flex-plate is needed (sold by a few companies out there). I was looking into this very swap but it is too wide for the earlier b-series vans. The big-block ones I'm happy to see it fits fine though! smile

THIS THREAD IS WORTHLESS WITHOUT PICS! smile lol
