|harleydragon||400 was the most heavy duty of the older chevy auto trannys.came from the factory primarily behind big blocks and then diesels,although the diesel had a different bellhousing bolt pattern.350 is what people normally use in jeeps because they are almost 3 1/2 inches shorter than the 400. 400 takes a little more power to operate than the 350 but if you have the room it is one heavyduty tranny|

|kywaterman||Bout as stout as they come, plus fairly cheap to have rebuilt if ever needed, at least around my parts. Got a pic of the transfer?|

The turbo 400 is a GREAT 3 speed trans, you will have NO issues with it coming apart if its built right.
I know drag racers that SWEAR by this trans.

|shadowbethesda||Well according to the reading I just did, it's a strong reliable unit. Now to fix the leaks...|

|2xs||THAT is a Turbo 400 GM transmission.|

Here are pics of the transmission. As soon as I can positively ID the unit I will replace the gasket and filter as well as replacing the missing cover. I'm all ears.
|08-05-2013 05:57 AM|
|shadowbethesda||Interesting thought but I wonder... It started off as a 5 speed judging by the clutch pedal that's still in it as well as the manual shift boot.|

|1987Wrangler YJ||could be the stock tf999 3spd that came in the auto YJ's|

I will have more pics next weekend when I see it again. I have it parked at a family members house (no more room in my driveway).
|08-04-2013 02:55 PM|
Wow Harley you are quick with the reply... Thank you.

|08-04-2013 02:20 PM|
A new set of wires, plugs air/oil filter for it are next on the agenda. Then ID'ing the transmission so I can order the appropriate pan gasket (it's leaking).
The automatic gearshift selector is some kind of hokey homemade thing so I ordered a cheap Z-shifter as a replacement (please don't flame me for that I know it's not the greatest but on a budget).
The radiator is ridiculously small for the Jeep as well so a replacement is on the menu as well.

|notjustone||307 was a fairly good motor. put out about 200 hp stock. used in the late 60s early 70s.|
|08-04-2013 09:28 AM|
|Rich67ard||lol that would be good wouldn't it?|
|08-04-2013 08:07 AM|
|shadowbethesda||Well the casting number indicates that it's a 307. Pics to follow. Thank you for the links guys.|
|08-02-2013 10:26 PM|
Take a pic of the balancer, if its the small balancer, its a 5.0L, if its the bigger one, its a 5.7L, however that IS an older engine and it could be a 327 or 400, with an HEI conversion (very easy as HEI is GM smallblock native, one wire hookup upgrade).
The tag in your second picture looks like a re-builders marking for machining (Old School), how much was cut from crank, piston bore and deck milling information.

It'll be a flat spot right in front of where the passenger side head bolts on. The engraved numbers may be covered in paint so might have to scrape around to see them.
Go to this link and it shows the spot. How to decode Chevy Engine Codes
Looks good a little cleaning and and tune up and it'll look real good. get some pictures of the rest of the drivetrain and we might can tell you some about them

|rykemc||It is not a tag but part of the block that will have letters and numbers stamped in it. Right in front of the passenger side cylinder head. You will most likely have to remove your alternator and possibly the bracket if it bolts to the end of the head.|
|08-02-2013 06:18 PM|
|Cashcrazy||Looks like a 305 or 350. They are basically the same block with the 305 having a smaller bore. IIRC the 350 had a 4" bore. there is plenty of info on google for identifying those.The question is what trans/tcase did they use?? Ill take a guess... Th350/np208. Take a shot of those. The tcase will have a tag on it probably and again plenty of info on those chevy products.|
