As long as the flexplate is the same size or has additional mounting holes.

To add to this answer in depth. i changed from a 350 to a 454. the 454 had a th400 transmission and the 350 had a th350 transmission. (This was a 4x4 so we had to use the th350 transmission because it had a married transfer case)the th400 flywheel did NOT match the th350 torque converter. We installed the th400 converter and it fit perfect in the th350 transmission. I would make sure torque converter bolts to flywheel and as well fits into trasmission before attempting to install in vehicle. It is a huge pain to make the swap half way through the install.

What torque converter will work on a Baja Warrior mini bike?

I have 1984 Chevy pick up with a 250 straight six upgrading to a 350 small cam v8 engine. the truck currently has a 700r4 trans. will this trans and torque converter work for the v8 up grade?

The trans will bolt directly to the 350,but you will need a new torque converter. I had a Nova with the same set-up because the guy who had it before me blew the original trans and replaced it with a 700r4 from a Camaro. The Nova now has a 350 with that trans, but like I said new torque converter. you dont have to buy a new torque converter just use the straight six fly wheel on your v8

Will a starter from a Chevy small block work for a Chevy big block?

Yes. But, here is a bit of closely gaurded information for you. The starters that require a spacer to bolt up the selenoid to that arm that just sticks out of the starter, as opposed to the ones that do not require the spacer. The ones that do, are a higher torque model, or big block version. That is why that arm is further out. Bigger armature.

Why does car lose acceleration uphill?

Automatic transmissions lose acceleration driving uphill because of the torque converter. The engine turns one side of the torque converter and the other side is splined into the input set of the planetary gears. The torque converter uses fluid to turn the input shaft in the transmission. When the transmission is locked into gear and going uphill the torque converter has to work against power losses from the tires on the road and when the engine is working harder the torque converter cuts or "shears" the fluid and it causes the transmission to overheat. Always make sure you have enough fluid in the transmission

What causes a Chevy Trailblazer transmission to overheat?

Three problems I know of are one not changing and/or checking fluid level and if you do alot of hauling the more weight the warmer the fluid get and finally the more shifting you do (mostly city driving) the warmer the fluid Make sure your lockup torque converter is functioning. It has to work in overdrive or it will overheat. When your torque converter locks up, you have a mechanical link between the engine and rear end. When the lockup torque converter isn't applied, you are coupled from the engine to the rear end through fluid which can churn and overheat in steady driving in overdrive.
