  4. Powerglide to Muncie question

    Transmission & Driveline
    I would like to install a Muncie 4-speed in place of the Powerglide in my ’68 Camaro. Is there a way to do this without having to cut the floorboard? I read somewhere about an offset shifter from Hurst that eliminates having to modify the floorboard, but from what I’ve seen online I think that...

    Transmission & Driveline
    I have a 67 rs conv 327 that I am trying to restore. Back in 1984 I took the car to a local transmission shop in Valparaiso Indiana. Rather than rebuilding my transmission it has come to my attention from my transmission guy here in Arizona that they did not rebuild my 2 speed powerglide as they...

  7. Best Rear End Gear for 68 Powergilde

    Transmission & Driveline

  8. Powerglide trans 1.76 vs 1.82 gear ratio

    Transmission & Driveline
    I am building a 68 camaro with a 540 engine and do not want the gear noise from a muncie. I expect a powerglide is what i need to run the 600 + hp up front. I have a 331 rear. Does anyone recommend which planetary gear ratio i should look for in a powerglide. Also, will i be able to change the...
  9. What the sam hell is this transmission?

    Tag Team
    Just when I think I'm learning, the car throws me a curve ball. I had no reason to believe that the PG trans was original to the car, but I thought it might be, b/c, honestly, who would voluntarily put a PG into a non-numbers Camaro? Out of morbid curiosity, I got under the car to check the...
  10. Returning speedo to OEM -- need help please! (Picture included)

    Transmission & Driveline
    PO installed AutoMeter gauges. I removed the AutoMeter speedo wiring and this nut/attachment is what I'm left with. In returning to an OEM set up (powerglide), do I just remove the nut/attachment that's there, and replace it with a bullet set up like this...
  11. help get the dog out

    Camaro Tech
    I have a powerglide and 2.73s that I'm saving up to replace with a 200r4 and 3.73s. In the meantime, is there anything that's relatively cheap and safe that I can do to get more life out of my 350? The car runs solid and smooth right now, but she's a dog. I just would like to have more fun...
  12. PG question

    Transmission & Driveline
    I'm learning from scratch about the PG in my "new" 69. I knew the car had zero git-up-and-go before I bought it. It's a complete dog. But I just presumed that it was because of the PG and the gears in the rear end (I'm going to crawl under there later today, get the code off the axle and...
  13. PowerGlide Value? Should I keep?

    What's it worth?

  14. 2 sp. Power glide

    Transmission & Driveline
    I have a 1968 Camaro Coupe with a 327. As far as I know the transmission is origional and have matching numbers. I have more top speed than low end power and torque. What should I do...? Leave it how it is, (I'm not worried about the resell price, I prefer to have it set to my standards.) or get...
