    easy swap. need the spacer kit and longer bolts to hold the tranny to the tcase adaptor. then need a short shaft tranny from a 2x4 unit and cut just a bit off the tail shaft. and it will go in no problems. and need kickdown setup for 350 and vacume line for modulator. and all crossmembers and drive shafts will be the same. any tranny shop or ask around will have the spacer kit.

    just measure the length of the 700 stick out and make the 350 the same but with the spacer on the case to make up the differance. it has been a long time and i forgot.
