    What is involve in swapping a th350 for th400. Do I have to change out the steering column? What is a good source for the steering colum if I do? Anything else have to be done besides cutting a whole in the floor?

    are you running a floor shift or column shift? if floor shift column makes no difference i am not sure if th350 uses different linkage than th400 but column is the same a local junkyard should have parts if not www.car-part.com has a list of nationwide junkyards with a search lol /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Same shifter linkage if using column shift, you lose reverse lights without some rewiring.

    I currently have a column shift and want to put in a th400 with the floor shift. Will the th400 bolt right up to my carbed 350.

    It will bolt right up. Your transfer case setup will need to be looked at though. Driveline length also since the 400 is longer than the 350.
