    we are talkin truck type right? you have the th200, (or th250 ??) th350, th400, th700r4, newer ones would be the 46l0e and 48l0e and the alison in the hd. manual. older one may see an sm 420 4 speed. 73-87 would be a sm465 4 speed. then you got a 5 speed but I dont know model.

    well... I have actually seen a smaller than th350 in an 84 4x4 short bed before. So it all depends on how you look at it cuz a th350 and th400 th700 are also car trannies... :dunno:

    For manuals, there was also a 4 speed manual that was an overdrive tranny. Can't recall it's 'name'

    For whoever mentioned the NV5600, GM has not used that 6 speed yet and probably won't. The 6 speed available in the newer GM's is the ZF6-S-650.

    So far Dodge is the only one using the NV5600.

    For 5 speeds there was the NV4500.

    From the spec's page we have this:

    SM318/SM326/SM330/T-89A/T-150 3 spd. (2.47-3.50:1 First Gear)

    SM465 4 spd. (6.55:1 First Gear)

    TH200R4 is about the samesize as the TH350, also the 200R4 has an integrated tailhousing that can't be removed and replaced with an adapter. So basically you couldn't have seen a 200R4 in there unless it was really custom.

    :dunno: whatever it was it was not as big as the th350 and was not nearly as strong as the tranny guy refused to rebuild it.

    what kind of trans guy would refuse to rebuild any transmission? Not to mention any trans guy worth his salt knows a 200R4 is weak stock but can be built up pretty good.

    That would be the A-833. Small aluminum housing about the size of a saginaw 3 spd. Found in some mid 80's GM 2wd trucks. I'd love to find one of these for cheap to put behind a 6.2L in a '73 C10 I'm getting soon. Should make for a great MPG daily driver.

    As far as the 200R4 being used in a truck, it was probably swapped in if you ever find one in there. They were only in cars from the factory. Trucks were only using Hydromatic, Powerglide(Chevy)/PowerFlo (GMC), TH350, TH400, 700R4, and 4L80E's in 1960-87(91) 1/2-1 ton trucks depending on what year your talking about.

    Manuals were the SM-420, NP-435, SM-465, A-833, Getchrag 5 spd, NV-4500 in 4 and 5 spd's. I don't know all the models for 3 spd's though. This should cover 1948-mid 90's 1/2-1 ton models.
