    Hello, I had to remove the transmission from my 57 Chevy due to an issue with the pump. It is a 700R4 on a SBC 305. Already fixed it, but I was checking other components before I put it back. Then I used a dial caliper to check if the flexplate was straight. It shows an oscillation of 1 mm...

    Hi, I am replacing a powerglide with a 700R4 on my 57 Chevy. My engine is a 327 from 65 with an original 1965 Rochester 4GC carburetor.
