    Is your current tranny the 3 speed with OD (A833), or three on the tree (SM326 I think) or??

    The 4sp is a pretty good tranny. Never had one myself, but we beat the snot out of a couple of my friends trucks that had 'em in college.
    The 3sp (on the tree) is a great tranny, a little cluncky to shift, but I've never heard of one breaking, I've had 2 of them, my current c10 has one, 168,000mi and not a lick of trouble with the tranny.

    I believe the bellhousing in all cases is the same. I know my '86 C10's 3sp bellhousing fit's up to a SM465, I believe the 4sp bell does as well.

    The 833 is the same design tranny Mopar put behind 440s and Hemis. However, there is also an all aluminum version that is not nearly as strong.
