    Hey guys a few months ago I got a 3 speed overdrive trans for a good deal out of 56. I have the stock 3 speed in my 57 at the moment. My car came with 3.55’s originally but after checking someone swapped a 3.36 rearend out of a 1960 Chevy. I’m not one to go fast or beat on it, but I wanna be...

    The transmission on top has been checked and all o-rings/gaskets replaced. 1 of the other's has a broken ear, 1 has rust inside and haven't checked the 4th out. You should be able to make a second good transmission out of all the parts with some left over. There is also another case and the...
  3. Transmission and DriveLine Questions
    So, I had a freshly rebuilt 2004r installed in my 57, and the first shop stripped the bolts on my torque converter and caused a rattling. since I couldn't return to that shop at the time, I had another shop replace my flexplate and rethread the bolts. when they did this, they way overfilled my...
  4. Interiors Questions and Answers
    Hello! I am going to be installing a 2004r into my 57, and I figured id swap out the stock pattern for a new 2004r one. I'm told the new one just clips in, but when I crawled under there to take some pictures today, it looks like its just held in with those two screws on either side...

    Havent posted in quite a while but its good to finally have a question! alright so I just today got a freshly rebuilt 2004r but without the torque converter, TV cable, anything. im definitely going to run the lock-up as im switching from cast iron powerglide to overdrive purely for the lower...
  6. Transmission and DriveLine Questions
    Hi all! We're going backwards from what most folks do. We currently have an automatic transmission, but we're converting to a 3-speed transmission with overdrive with a column ('three on the tree') shift for our 1957 150 2-door. I'm gathering the parts necessary for the conversion. Here's...
  7. Stock Chevy Discussion 55-56-57
    My Nomad came with a 3spd OD transmission. I have all the parts, but I'm wondering if I should change this over to an automatic OD transmission while the body is off the frame and I'm doing the restoration. I don't want to do 'extensive modifications'. Is there ANY late model auto OD...
  8. Trifive Nomads, Sedan Deliveries & Station Wagons
    Hello Classic folks! I've just resumed my Nomad project I began long ago, and I have a short time frame to get it complete, so I need to make sure any mods I make are good ones, and don't have to be 'redone' 2 or 3 times. My car was originally a 6 cyl (235) with 3 spd OD and 4.11 rear end, and...
  9. Transmission and DriveLine Questions
    Hope someone can help. I just had a transmission shop remove my 1955 3 speed manual with overdrive transmission and put in new seals. When he replace the transmission it seems to work except when in OD I don't now have the kickdown (passing gear) that I used to have. Could he maybe have put the...
  10. Stock Chevy Discussion 55-56-57
    Hi, I have just bought a Borg Warner R10 overdrive transmission for my dad’s 57 Chevy. I opened the overdrive part of the transmission and everything looks great without wear. But the 3 speed part of the transmission is not so good. My question is if the gears on a standard 3 speed transmission...

  12. Transmission and DriveLine Questions
    Greetings -- I've just finished a rebuild on a 265 and Borg-Warner 3-speed overdrive tranny. Got about 350 break-in miles. The transmission will ocassionally slip gently out of 2nd gear at slow speeds. No bit thing really. More annoying is that when cruising at highway speeds in overdrive...
