    Swapped a Th350 in for my 700r4. 700r4 wiring wont fit the Th350. Is it necessay wiring. What does it do and how can I fix it? By the way, the engine and tranny i put in my 84 were out of an 81. Also, any body put a CD player in their K5? Whered you put it, since the radio slot has the small opening and two holes for the knobs? Thanks.

    Um, i don't think you need any wires hooked up to the th350.
    Theres no lockup torque converter like the 700r4.
    Just the kickdown cable mounted up to your throttle linkage is all else you need to hook up.

    If the 350 is an '81 like he says it is, as I recall it will have TCC and is a TH350C.

    In any case, you can run without it connected if you want. The 700's must generate more heat, as when the TCC is disconnected on them, you can run into problems.

    Can't imagine getting a TH350C plug and "re-pinning" it for the 700R4 wiring would be that difficult if you do want to run it. Keeps the tranny cooler at cruise and increases MPG slightly.
