Hello,
I have a '55 Belair with a 265ci engine and a cast iron(CI) 2sp power glide. However, I'm a bit tired of the back flow from the torque converter. I would like to replace it with an aluminum 2sp power glide, if I can find one or a TH350. I was told that the TH350 will bolt up to the 265Ci engine. I can't find anyone in Fayetteville, NC nor nearby to modify my CI power glide. Any and all help will be appreciated.
