Picked up my new 350 crate motor in Youngstown this week, got a lot of strange looks from civilians not familiar with what vanners will do to their vans as I hauled the V8 down I-80 behind the Astro in the lil club trailer. Picking up the new HEI distributor and a new Weiand intake today, already have a hi output water pump, Edelbrock 600 cfm 4 bbl and fuel pressure stepdown, engine mount adapters, and headers sitting in boxes. (Which the wife will be relieved to see leave the hall closets.lol)
The only fly in my ointment is still a lack of a 700r4 4 speed for the conversion, the L460e I have on hand will not work with a non computerized setup, torque converter will not lock without instructions from momma. Anyone have a rebuildble one cheap? Junkyards here want 600 and up for tired trannies with 100 k and up on them, and being as I have the clutches, frictions, and pump kit for the thing already ( nonreturnable) no, I am not in a position to buy a rebuilt. The stock factory or rebuilts aren't all that reliable behind a built 350 anyhow, main reason why I planned on rebuilding my own.Anyone having a rebuildable ,reasonably priced 700r4, please let me know.

The Inbred was in reference to the dimbulbs that live in this part of Ohio, the civilians here
( there don't seem to be any active vanners left)
are for the most part miserable,humorless and unsociable. Not typical of Ohio, I have met quite a few nice people in other parts of the state, just must be an isolated something in the water here.lol.
Anyhow, a tranny? Really? How much and how far?

Donny,
I think I have a 700r 4 speed <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="images/icons/confused.gif" /> in the 1977 Chev S/b i just picked up. It also has a crate 350 in it that we are swapping to a 87 Chev. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="images/icons/shocked.gif" /> The tranny was installed, however there was no computer ( ? ) to make 4th work, and they previous owner knew not how to overide the tranny so it would work. ( manual switch )
I will let you know what the tranny is, and what I am going to do with it. The van is half solid, and half cheese, but a classic no window SB <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />

Thanks, Doc. If its really a 700r4 it shouldn't need a puter,the L460E came into production in Chevy vans in 93,and they do need a puter to do everything from shift points to locking up the torgue converter .Anything before 93 would be a 700r4 ( or a 350). Unless the guy that owned your 77 s/b before you used an after 92 puterized tranny with a 350 crate motor in a 77? Arrrrgh,hurts to think what else he did to it.lol.
Good luck with the carcass, let me know what the tranny is when you can.

Donny,
I do not speak GM except for a few words. 350 4 bolt main........lol
The engine has 3000 miles on it when the cubevan it was in was destroyed. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="images/icons/frown.gif" /> Dave started putting it in the chevy when the hoist chain slipped damaged the casing of his Tranny. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Mad]" src="images/icons/mad.gif" />
His buddy at the Tranny shop at the 700 lying around and stuck it in, but never got 4th working due to no computer. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="images/icons/shocked.gif" /> He just ran it with 3 speeds for a while and was going to junk it due to lack of parking spot. I acquired it for the motor only, and the rest of the van is rough, I may sell it complete as a project, or part it out. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />
I will take and email pics of the tranny, unless you can tell me how to identify the tranny ??? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="images/icons/confused.gif" />
Send me a private email so I can get your addy and send you the pics. I will crawl under the chev just for you.....lol

Thanks, Doc. The 700r4 has only a few pins on the electrical connector plug, the 460 has quite a few. The filter on the 700r4 is almost perfectly square, the 460's is longer and almost rectangular . I dont have a book on id'ing 460's but I do on 700r4's, I've posted pics on my All Nite Vans website on how to ID from the numbers on the tranny. Thanks for the help, link is here, just click on the thumbs for full size,

Any questions email me donnydj@allnitevans.com or give me a shout, I'll be out and about chasing other parts all day so cell is : 419-346-1512

Thanks again.........
