Not to say all the added weight of an old cast iron transmission case, BUT because of it I was advised it could most likely handle the extra torque put into it by a 350 in first gear....

And they used to run 90 weight oil...more drag.

I think I am down to two choruses: the 6 speed or a stand alone OD.

For all this I suspect you could do a bolt on overdrive tailshaft like the RV people do. However they be pricey. I wonder if they are available in junkyard places.

I am not all that impressed with the only one left on the market.

I know my BW 3 speed and OD took all I gave it as a teenager, and never broke.

And I consider the free wheeling would be a help in some cases for MPG.

Now to just find instructions on converting it to a stand alone.

Well the only other thing I could suggest would be like a borg warner 13 series "transfer case" or whatever fits your trans housing. I know there is one for my ZF6 which would be good to 1500 lbft torque and just shy of 600hp. Take the chain out and safety wire the forward prop shaft in.

I thought of that, once, but for a time I was going to use 200R4 which has no removable tail housing.

But now I am running a Ford 4R70W and there is a tail shaft housing:

That just might work....

Thanks.

OK Now we come to THE question of the hour:

I believe you can run a second Overdrive behind a transmission with its own Over Drive.

Yes or NO??
