    trying to make up my mind on what I'm going to do as far as replacing/repairing my toasted 700R4

    Looked at the B&M Towmaster (think that is what it was called) for trucks and RV's with a 2500 stall

    I just have the bone stock 350 TBI (1987) with 3.43 gears and 33" tires. Is 2500 too high for this combo/engine?

    I'd say the S10 2200 stall converter would be a little better. For a stock truck it won't have like ill effects to run a 2500 stall but think about the fact that you only rev to 4500 at most so thats 2000 rpm operating range. Limiting yourself pretty well. I know I would like more rpms to play with. But I am a manual man, AUTOS SUCK. hehe sorry

    Yeah. For a stock truck I think around 2000 is plenty.
    The only Trans that I know of B&M makes for 4x4s is the "Traveler". I think it comes with a 1800 or 1900 stall convertor about 300 rpm over stock
