    this is why everyone runs the spacer. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif dunno what to tell ya dude... running a shallow pan isnt much of a solution... prolly end up toasting ur tranny over it.

    I've saw one where they cut the pan and welded a piece of angle on that side to make a notch for the d-shaft. Sounds like a pain but might work.

    This company makes several for the 700. www.yourcovers.com

    btw, where can I get one of those adaptors?

    How much clearance do you need? Can you notch the pan using a piece of exhaust tubing?

    Also how much lift on the truck? Just wontering cause I have the shaft and was gonna do this in the next year. Dont want these complications /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I did the same thing years ago (now I would go with the spacer). I had a buddy cut a section of that corner out of my pan and weld in a piece. The thing that sucks is there is an accumulator over in that corner, so you can only cut so much. I had a couple spare 700's laying around so I used one and some silly puddy to mark where in the pan the accumulator was, and used that for making my cuts......hope this helps (also my d-shaft hit my pan and would have torn it open if I ever tried to spin it before I modded the pan).

    spacer = goooood. not only is the tranny pan not a problem (even a deep pan like i have) but it makes the front shaft longer.. which helps the angles a bit. Im surprised AA sells any of those shafts.. their "solution" costs 3x as much, causes pan clearance issues, and is a pita to install.
