I could torque it up to about 2500 on the footbrake before it would spin the tires.

Hey bud, is that not for a th350? I need one for a glide. Apparently it's not easy to find a 3500 stall cheap.

It is turbo spline, but most people I know run turbo spline converters in their powerglide. You just need a turbo spline shaft. The tranny in my race truck has a turbo spline converter and my dragster has a glide spline. If you dont need it, its no big deal I was just throwin it out there...

You can check out transmission specialties converters at

They can be bought for a fair price and are pretty good quality.

Tranny guys correct me if I'm wrong...but I do not think it is as simple as that....I don't think he can just buy another shaft and stick it in. The reason I say that, when I had mine built, the guy who did it asked which shaft I wanted...turbo or glide. I said "What do you recomend?" He told me the powerglide shaft was easier on him...I think he said he would have to machine something if I wanted the turbo spline shaft...he was doing it for next to nothing as a favor so that's why he wanted to take the easier way....I may have screwed that story up cause it has been a few years ago....and Like I said I wouldn't argue that with someone who knows transmissions because I don't know much about them.

I bought a turbo spline shaft convertor from edge racing convertors for my glide and just needed a turbo shaft for it to work, and never had a days trouble with it. I've been told by a number of people that the turbo spline shaft is stronger.It sould fit fine.

I HAD A G.E.R. 3000 CONVERTER, WENT TO A EDGE 3000 CONVERTOR CUSTOM BUILT FOR MY CAR AND GAINED A 1/2 SECOND IN THE 1/4 MILE AND 500 LESS RPMS THROUGH THE TRAPS... ALOT OF THE CHEAPER CONVERTORS WILL JUST WHIND THE ENGINE OUT INSTEAD OF GRABBING AND BUILDING SPEED.. ALSO EDGE CONVERTORS GARANTEES A LOWER ET OR YOUR MONEY BACK..

My friend bought one of my Edge convertors from me and sent it back to them to have it spec. to his motor. He ran 3 10ths quicker when he got it back and ran it. I cant remember the guy I talked to at Edge (been about 6 years) but he had 30 years of experience with racing convertors and had worked for some of the bigger names out there. Great convertors. Forgot that they quarentee quicker times or your money back. Is yours a 9 1/2 inch also?

What about these Redneck converters? They say they have the anti-ballooning plate in them for under 300?
