YellowLark Posted April 15, 2001 Share Posted April 15, 2001 Well, I'm going to do the trans swap - replace my ST-300 in my '66 Skylark with a 200-4R.<P>Contacted a trans shop which was recommended by racing friends. Told the owner what I wanted and that the car is not raced. He wasn't familiar with the Skylark, so I mailed him the August 2000 issue of Hot Rod.<P>He read it and told me it was a common job for him. But, he wanted it to be a pick-up-the-next-day job, and swapping the stock cross member for a different one would cause delays. The Hot Rod article involved installing a Chevelle x-member, and he doesn't have one available.<P>So, his question for me was: can the 200-4R be installed on the stock cross member, knowing that it will block the pan bolts?<P>If it can, then he can proceed with his estimated schedule, and I can come back at some future time with a Chevelle cross member and he will swap that in.<P>I told him that I believed the stock cross member would work if moved back, and we set a date for the 24th. Is this right? Will the 200-4R bolt down OK?<P><P>------------------<BR> Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
