700R4 into 74 Vega

Postby dragnknights » Wed Jun 06, 2012 8:20 pm

I have a 74' Vega with a 350/350 and I'm looking to do a 700r4 swap on it. Is there anything I should know moving forward, or is a pretty simple ordeal?

Thnanks!

OK here's what little i know, you will need a trans crossmember. probably have to make one. You will have to have the driveshaft shortened, if you think you will need it again get 1 from salvage yard. The tv cable has to be setup right, the radius from the throttle shaft to the cable and full estended when carb is wide open. I would search for 700r4 and maybe see how the crossmember can be made.

That was helpful. Thanks! But does anyone know about how much (if any) Floorboard modification would be required? I have the 350 out right now, and a 700r4 Mock Up case. It looks close, there will deffinately need to be some clearance adjustments.
