Hello, I may be in the market for an FC auto tranny. But would prefer one that came out of a running vehicle. I'm located in Pennsylvania. Thanks

Car tranny is the same except for front pump cover....and if you have one you can swap it easily....

Thanks Matt. I would be willing to do that if someone has one that they know works. I may try Jeff at the Corvair ranch as well. If someone has one let me know. If you go with a car one is there any difference due to year or differential or hp that I would need to be aware of?

The PG installed behind a 164 cubic inch engine does have some differences in the valve body to handle the additional torque. I seem to also remember an additional torrington bearing in the planetary assembly rather than thrust washers.
If you swap the pump you have to reset the end play on the unit. Replacing the pump and cover is NOT a bolt on swap.

I would like to hear more about this. I have a 61 Rampside with the factory PG. The truck does not have an engine at the present. I may have lined up a 66 110/PG combination and would like to know what I would need to do to make it work in the truck. I know I would still need to use the original differential, and swapping the front cover on the PG has been mentioned. What about the input shaft, or is that what they call the torque shaft? Any help would be appreciated. thanks,
