What does it take to run a th400/sm465/205 or however it's setup? I understand the concept but how do you make it all work? Two trannys would provide a lot of gear combinations. I've seen a couple guys in TTC with them but need some answers.

I have a post in General somewhere about how I built a 700r4/sm465 setup and my new sm465/sm465.

I'll see if I can find it, if you have any questions just ask.

COOL!!! You have a place that can make the shafts?? I was thinking 400/465 as I stated but not sure yet. I hate auto's but they do have their up's.

Do you get much slip from the auto? That's why I don't like them.

I had them lathed to an interferance fit and TIG welded. I beat on it for a while and now that the shafts out it shows no signs of wear. I figured if it ever broke I'd have a one piece shaft made.

With the auto/man I shifted the man like a crawl box(in neutral), now the clutch allows me to shift either.

As for slip in the auto, I wish it had more........I would have kept it except that at idle it would rip the motor mounts out when you hit the brakes, and twist a D44 stub in half. It still went into OD on the hiway with the man in 4th, and drove normal, but I really would put a high stall converter in if you're going this route/.

Sounds like what I need. Where can I get a shaft to adapt a 400 to my 465? What would it cost?
Thanks

You can't "GET" one. You have to make it yourself, as he did, or commission someone else to make one for you,

I was refering to who I could have make me one?
I don't care to fab one up. Imput shafts I prefer to have machined out of one piece.
