The Sm420 is old, sloppy, loud, heavy, hard to shift and the gears are spread out WAY to far.

The only thing going for it is the LOW first gear range.




I would rather have a yota trans with a doubler. But the sm420 will almost match that gearing with out a doubler. So its a toss up.

Buddy of mine runs a 4.3 with a TURBO 350 ,reverse manual valvebody,big aliminum pan....it still has the zuki tub in it,with a heavily modified trans tunnel,I know because I redone the interior aluminum panels in it





It has a 4.3 ATLAS case, & chevy ton axles under it.

I didn't use the sm420 cuz it was heavier, wider, and longer than the ford t18. plus the ford tranny uses an adapter to the t-case which is only one inch long.
the sm420 adapter was longer, and I didn't want that length.
. I'm glad I did, cuz now my front and rear driveshafts should be about the same length.
