    I'm preparing to do an SM465 swap into the 73 K20, since I lunched the NP205 on my TH350, and I figgure the TH350 won't stand up to the abuse the 454 can dish out... With luck, I'll get some time in the next few weeks to actually do the swap, and have enough money laying around to make it happen. All I need right now is a flywheel ($180) Clutch kit ($130) and pilot bearing ($3). That, and a weekend to drop the TH350/205, and install the SM465/205 in it's place.

    Good luck, hope it is 'all that easy'

    If it were mine, nothing would fit right, and the very last bolt would break causing a complete dissassembly to fix.

    I'm going to see if I can get a random chevy flywheel from the pick A part, in hopes of using it as a core for a remanufactured flywheel from Autozone... remanufactured flywheel costs $60, but the core charge is $105... New flywheels cost $180.

    Dragged the tranny/t-case combo down to a turbo wash/self serve carwash, and blasted the hell out of it. unfortunately, it was getting dark and cold, and as such the grease re-solidified into an impenetrable shell. I'll be trying again tomorrow afternoon while it's still warm outside, and with luck, I'll get the remainder off, so I can paint it in time for my scheduled install saturday.

    Try using some Greased Lighting to get that grease off. It worked well for me.

    Does any one have any 205 parts laying around? I need a rear output flange and a front output shaft bearing/seal reatainer. (You know the little aluminum piece that's held on by 4 bolts)

    Where do you get that Greased Lighting stuff? I've heard its really good for getting oil spots/stains off of concrete/pavement.

    I got it from my mom in a car cleaning kit. I'll see if I can find out from her.
