Re: having a hard time. 700 and driveshaft

Your biggest hurdle will be getting the TV cable connected with the correct geometry and properly adjusted. That is unless of course you have a 4bbl carb. For a starter all you need is one for the particular size flexplate you are using that bolts to the block. Just have your original driveshaft shortened to the correct length. That shouldn't cost anywhere near $300.

Re: having a hard time. 700 and driveshaft

When you go to the parts store, ask for a starter for a vehicle that came with a 292 and an automatic.('69 C20, 292, powerglide). I want to say they are same as a starter for an SBC... straight across bolt pattern. Make sure you're running the correct flexplate too.
