    What overdrive trans. Would work best in a 47 ford with a 327 engine and a 8.8 rear with 355 gears

    Are you talking automatic or stick shift?

    If auto, 700R (4L60) or 200R as non electric, later 4L60E is electric and requires a computer. 200R is approx 2" shorter in length than a 700R. As an example my '35 runs 3.5:1 rear with 235.75.15 tyres and turns 2k rpm at 60mph.

    As stated, the 700 r4 and the 2004r are good units if your 327 is a chevy engine. The plug in the side of the trans is for locking up a torque converter if you choose to have one. Also, you will need a tv cable and the bracketry to hook it up to the carb. The 700r4 has a 3.06 first gear and a big jump to second while the 2004r is much more evenly spaced. A good core for the 2004r can be found under a Cadillac. You can also get the tv cable, and brackets for a q-jet from the save vehicle. It will have the AA code on the tail tag on the pass side. The pan looks like this.

    if you are thinking manual trans and you don't need to shift quickly a newprocess is cheap with about 30% overdrive but you will have to change the clutch plate.
