67 Chevy powerglide question
« on: January 26, 2017, 06:44:36 PM »
Hi Dan.....we are going to swap the powerglide out of a 67 Chevy wagon with a 307 2 barrel......with a turbo 350 from a 36 Chevy streetrod. It has a 350 4barrell. He thinks it has a aftermarket converter. So......before we get into this I would like to know if we can swap input shafts to keep the stock converter in the wagon?
Thanks !!!!

No the input shaft of the 350 is pressed into the input drum. They do make a conversion shaft, they are expensive and require disassembly and a press to swap the shafts. Your best bet is just buy a stock 350 converter. You should be able to get one at any trans shop for less than $100.00
