    HELP! I’ve had to put my ‘57 Bel Air in the shop for the first time. It has a ‘99 Silverado transmission that won’t shift beyond 2nd gear. About how much should a shop charge to fix 3rd and 4th? I don’t want to be over-charged and not know it! Thanks for your opinions and expertise!
  2. Stock Chevy Discussion 55-56-57
    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...

    First Post since I joined trifive. Has anyone tried the detent bracket from East Coast Chevy for using a TH350 and a stock column and steering wheel? I have read multiple reviews of "others" ( both formed and billet) and and they could generally be described as park lockout brackets. I am...

    Really enjoyed getting out last season and really driving my 56 for the first time. But of course it brings up a few issues. The car was originally 3 on the tree but is now Turbo 350 automatic. I need to install a column mounted shift indicator. I don't want to pay Danchuk $83.00 - this is not a...

    I've got a 1956 Bel Air Sedan with a Powerglide. The transmission was working perfectly, but after an engine rebuild the trans started leaking, and later stopped shifting well. However, the dipstick says that it's full and it won't take more fluid. I want to top it off and have a transmission...
  8. Stock Chevy Discussion 55-56-57
    Hey everyone!! So I have discovered that my trans mounts are shot and I need to replace them. Can I do it without removing the engine? From underneath the car it looks like I can place a jack under the trans to lift it while I R&R the mounts. Any experience advice with this is appreciated...
  9. Transmission and DriveLine Questions
    Finally done with my 56. Runs and drives great, except.. When I get up to 60 MPH, the small block is revved up more than I like. What is better - go from the 3:73 gears to say 3:08, or change the Turbo 350 to a 400, or? Any input is appreciated.

    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...

    For sale is a 1963 dated Muncie M21 four speed transmission. Overall this transmission is in very nice condition. It is also somewhat rare in that it is a one year only casting case. The "1704" casting was a first year production only. In 1964 GM switched to the "325" casting. This trans has the...

    I have a 1988 700R4 Corvette transmission that has low miles on it. I would like to use it in my 1956 2 door wagon. The tail section is different than the other 700R4 transmissions. Anyone ever adapted the rear mount or have any conversion advice? From what I have read, the servos etc. from the...

    This is my remote Transmission Cooler with its own fan...that I installed under the right rear floor board...outside of the frame rail. It has a 1 inch clearance from the cooler to the floor...and the fan really pulls some serious air through it. I think it was a Jawga Cooler from O'Reilly's...

    I'm a new owner of a 1956 Chevy 2-door Bel Air Sedan. It has a "three on the tree" transmission - three speed with overdrive transmission with a column shifter on the steering column. I'd like to modify to a floor shifter, though I'm having trouble finding a floor shifter that's compatible...
