If you are installing a 700R4 or an early 4L60E Transmission, Speed Gems has the accessories listed below that will work for these applications. These are available to be purchased separately.
-- Crossmember Kit
NOTE: This crossmember will NOT work for: TH350, TH400, 4L80E, or 2004R Transmission applications.
-- Speedometer Cable
-- TV Cable Linkage Bracket for 700R4 Applications.
Driveshaft for this Application:
After the Transmission install is complete, take the driveshaft to a reputable driveshaft builder. The front trunnion type U-joint will need to be replaced with a slip yoke that matches the Transmission that is being used.
NOTE: If the application is on a 1956 Packard with the electric shift column, there is a solution for using the original, stock push button shift assembly.
*Matching our adapter kits with your engine can be tricky. If you are unsure of which kit to purchase for your engine, please call customer service at (763) 767-4480. Speed Gems is not responsible for return shipping costs of mismatched kits.
