Also can someone tell me what the stock torque converter stall speed would be for a 67 big block 396 325HP Camaro.

You're not going to be able to replace the bushing easily unless you remove the whole trans pump assembly and dissasemble it so you can drive out the bushings. The front seal though is easy to remove with a seal puller (T-shaped tool with hooks on the end) then you can tap in the new front seal. Make sure it goes in square.

Lube the seal lip and pump driver of the t/conv before sliding on the torque convertor.

Probably easiest to do this with the trans out of the car and mounted to a stand. You're going to have to remove the pump from the transmission. You can either do this with a pump remover OR you can remove the bolts and get two slide hammers and thread them into the threaded holes and gentlty pop the pump out.

Once it is out, I really recommend taking it to a trans shop to get rebuilt because there are soft and hard parts inside that should get replaced when you have it apart.

But if you really want to rebuild it yourself, I recommend picking up an ATSG manual on the th350 to give you a step by step.

You'll need two special tools: a pump alignment band and something to drive in and out the bushing, such as a socket.
