    Greetings and how ya doin.
    I suppose ya could do a search and come up with shloads of info.

    Myself I have not done that swap but IIRC new shafts will be needed.
    the front joints are the same.
    Wheels are up to you. keep yer 15 inch tires and get some 8 lug 15inchers or ...?
    For the TH400 you will need the kick down switch. It screws down at the throttle pedel.
    New u-bolts are needed as well. it's a pretty basic swap.
    You came to the right place for info.. if it's been done once it's been done a thousand times by members here.
    I'm sure someone here has done the swap you are wanting to do and can fill ya in on all the goods.
