Steve,

Afaik, the '64 400 was a one year oddball, with many one year only parts. Afaik, it was actually was a buick nailhead bolt pattern case with an adapter between it and the engine. Also has only one wire terminal [non switch pitch] and the fitting in the case for the wire is much smaller than '65 up trans'. Dipstick tube fit into the pan, rather than case.

I don't know if the yoke is same as '65 up. Is it extra long like the newer caddy trans?

Thanks Dave .I guess it would be called short, The tail housing is 10" long. Sounds like I might want to look for an adaptor and newer trubo400.Gee I thought this was going to be easy! Thanks ,Steve

Steve,

I didn't mean to imply that the '64 trans was bad. It's just odd. Again, afaik, the '64 was the only rwd to use an adapter. Afaik, you would need no adapter to use a 65-67 Caddy trans.

10" long is for sure not a short tail.

Steve,

The '64 was the first year for what is commonly called a "turbo 400", but it has the odd features that I mentioned, whereas the '65 and later 400s are more uniform, so to speak. The 400s were reffered to as a "hydramatic" by GM. Kind off a generic term that they used.

Your '64 may indeed accept a yoke from a later 400, I just don't know. It might help if you could post a pic or three of your trans.

Fwiw, I would look for a 65-67 caddy trans. I can't recall for sure, but it seems to me that they'll bolt to a '64.

Steve,

It sounds like a '63. If you can e-mail the pics to me, I'll post them if I can.

There a few sets of directions on how to post pics in the "Testing 1 2 3 Testing..." section. Hopefully one of the sets of directions works for you. If not, let me know & I'll take care of it for you.
