727 Transmissions


I have a '54 331 with its original powerflite. I see that Hot Heads has an adaptor kit for the 727, what years and what cars can I find a 727 in??

Once you have the adaptor in place I would really recommend that you look for the early Mopar automatic overdrive (518?) transmission. Especially if you do not have a 727 in place now. The bolts line up with the adaptor but the rear transmission mounts are in a different location. Driveshaft length will change. I say early so you can get one with only two wires which go to the computer. They engage the loc up and overdrive which you can do with switches. Early 90's is about the time period. At 60 mph the od knocks almost 600 rpm off your engine speed. I have been very happy with my change over but I do long distance drives not burn rubber at the drive in.

Kip: I have installed many Hot Heads trans adapters over many years and all had the oil pan installed. That misconception is my fault. I told a customer that needed some help, that would make his particular problem easier. Sorry for any confusion, Bob

There are various makers of hemi to 392 adaptors. HH & Wilcap are "full circle" type that you're supposed to connect the engine & tranny before installing the oil pan. Quality Engineered Components & T R Waters are the horseshoe type where you install the oil pan 1st. You need a small block 727. Pick ups & vans 70s-80s usually have them.
