4 Speed


I've all but given up on finding a good A833 to put behind my 392. What other transmission would come closest to fitting my '67 GTX tunnel without a lot of fabrication? Would like to use the factory shifter hump in the tunnel if possible.

I'm a huge 833 fan....OD and non OD. They're out there but here lately the have gone high....I'll be running an 833 behind my 392 Hemi.....OD or not. And the B&E bodies tail shaft are easiest ones to snag since you're running a B-body....get it up and going then find or build yourself a tougher one.

The early OD's...the 75's are cast iron. Out of the stock OD's they're the strongest out of the OD's. Remember 1st and 2nd can be shifted just as hard as the non OD's....you just don't want to power shift them to third and OD.

Passon Performance can supply you with 18 spline OD kit for the 833's also with a 727 gear spread.

Just my opinion....

I am going with a ow mileage Dodge 5 speed out of a 1997 pickup behind my mild 1957 325 Dodge hemi. It is an aluminum case. I think it will hold up and gives me the overdrive option. The late model hemi engines had a lot of horse power and torque and these transmission seem to hold up okay. It is just a thought or another option if you are just on the street and now running a super high horse power machine. Also if you break it, the local yards will have a spare for you.

How hard are you looking? There is one on eBay now for 350 bucks . I paid 300 for mine and picked it up locally . Not a rare transmission by any means.

I find lots of overdrive trannys but not many cast iron models for that price. Besides all the ones I see for sale look like someone found them in a junk pile and stuck a $600 price tag on them.
