DESIGNED FOR USE WITH ANY CHRYSLER '66-70 "A'
or "B" BODY, or 2 W.D. PICK-UP or VAN- Slant 6, V6 or V8 ENGINE R.W.D. VEHICLE
built since 1966.
LOWER YOUR R.P.M. TO 78% OF YOUR EXISTING ENGINE SPEED. (eg: If you now cruise at 3000 r.p.m. at 60 m.p.h., with our "Shortie" overdrive kit installed, you
will cruise at 78% of 3200 = 2340 r.p.m.)
Now Mopar Owners can install an overdrive without major modifications
to their floor* or critical crossmember.
No longer do you need to consider using a converted inferior
G.M. transplant, a transplanted welded on bellhousing, adapter kits or cumbersome
extra long tailshaft units.
In some installations, a small dent may be required in the floorpan to clear the speedometer adapter.
ONLY 7 1/4" LONGER THAN A STANDARD 727, an
SMR "Shortie" overdrive transmission is a DIRECT BOLT-ON for all V6, A, B, RB,
and 426 and GEN III HEMI engines in rear wheel drive Chrysler vehicles. No floorpan
or critical crossmember modifications are required. (No special
fabrication or welding skills required)
Installation is a true bolt-in,
requiring only the shortening of the driveshaft, in any car or 2 wd truck originally
equipped with a 727, 904 or 3 or 4 speed standard transmission.
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.
Every SMR 727"Shortie" OVERDRIVE KIT includes:
- -the Overdrive unit and "Shortie" housing
- -"Shortie" output shaft (to replace your standard long 727 output
shaft) ('62-'75 planetary spline only);
- -5 GPZ High Torque, High Energy CLUTCH plates, matched steels and
selective snap ring, to Increase the Direct Clutch capacity (to handle the added load of the overdrive);
- -Pump and pan gasket and new filter - to allow you to complete
the installation of the internal components
- -all wiring and activation switch;
- -overdrive shift controller (which can be set for automatic or manual
- -speedometer cable extension;

- -an OPTIONAL lower shifter support bracket (on models
that wish to utilize the factory console shifter); and
- -Detailed Instructions.
Each unit is custom calibrated based on rear
gear ratio and tire size to provide accurate automatic
shift points and correct speedometer readings for the specific vehicle in which it will be installed.
