Which is the correct turbo 350 for a 1970 Chevy C10 2wd 350 ci. 4 barrel. The 6" or 9" tailshaft ? I am converting for manual to automatic.

Mr. Bowtie

The short bed truck takes the short tail shaft. The long bed takes the 9" tailshaft.

My truck is a shortbed, I have a 350 turbo with the 9" tailshaft. Could it be used with modify to the cross menber and driveshaft ???

Mr. Bowtie

Yes, You would have to measure and have the driveshaft cut and balanced to the specified length you need. You may be able to use existing holes in the frame and bolt the crossmember to them, otherwise you can cut and weld your original crossmember to make it fit.

Put some air pressure in the dipstick tube and try to clear the vent at the top of the transmission. If that does not work, reverse the pressure to the vent and see of the air comes out the dipstick tube.

bubbaould a plugged up breather tube cause it to shut off like that tho? I'll be driving fine then it'll stay in the gear I'm at and a little more driving and it won't shift and ill barely move
