700r4 into '70 C10

Installed a 700r4 ('93 I think) into my C10.


The most complicated aspect about my install was preparing my Carter Thermoquad carb for the TV cable hookup.

I am also waiting for a modern instrument cluster with electronic speedo, tacho and 4 other gauges.

I bought the transmission from local importers for US$375, installed a new cable, filter and sump gasket and it works just fine. Propshaft was shortened, fitted with 700r4 yoke, serviced and balanced. No vibrations.

Next on the agenda is converting from floor shift to collumn shift. The truck was collumn shift manual originally. Clutch pedal is still mounted hidden behind carpet.
Best regards, Philip

Yes, the TV cable adjustment is critical for the transmission's life. Nice choice. I used one (for a Buick hot rod, not my truck) from an '85 car so I didn't have to upgrade to an electronic speedo. Loved that digger first gear!
