    post says it all. I took my t-case out yesterday to convert it to twin stick and found that one of the holes where the case bolts to the tranny was about broke clear out. I would perfer a K case because they are supposed to be stronger. the tranny can be an empty case because my guts in my tranny are fine. I might end up having it welded back together but if I can find a good K case this is a perfect time to change it.
    Thanks

    I have a th350 case with some guts in it. It came out of my 72 blazer. How do you tell if it is a k case or not.

    I need some education here. Is a K case better? Is there something special about it?

    I think they're beefier and have mounting holes for everything, but don't quote me on that...

    So basically it's stronger and the alum flywheel cover helps reduce the chance of damage due to scrape-age. Hmmmm would a K case work for a TH400? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
