ONLY 7 1/4" LONGER THAN A STANDARD 727, an
SMR "Shortie" overdrive transmission is a DIRECT BOLT-ON for all Slant 6, V6,
A, B, RB, and 426 and GEN III HEMI engines in rear wheel drive 1962 to 1970 "B" Body Chrysler
vehicles . No floorpan or critical
crossmember modifications are required.* (No special fabrication
or welding skills required)
* In some installations a small dent may be required to clear the
speedometer adapter at the overdrive housing.
Installation is a true bolt-in,
requiring only the shortening of the driveshaft, in any '62-'70
"B' Body or 2 wd truck originally equipped with a 727, 904 or 3 or 4 speed standard transmission.
Installation is also simple in '67 to '76 "A" Body cars with
only minor modification of the lower transmission mount
This transmission retains:
- -stock crossmember;
- -transmission mount;
- -stock cooler lines;
- -stock shifter (except
'62-65) and kickdown linkage;
- -stock or heavy duty Chrysler
- -standard design Chrysler
starter and location; and
- -The full strength and integrity of the overall transmission
is not compromised by removal of the original cast bellhousing to utilize an adapter that is
welded on or bolted to the pump. (Such a bolt on bellhousing places the full torque
load onto the pump bolts which were designed strictly for the purpose of holding the pump in place).
Utilizing these standard Chrysler design components, makes service and
parts replacement a simple task.
