Has any one fitted a A833 4 speed box to a Gen 3 Hemi? (5.7 or 6.4)
I was told that its a direct bolt up to a small block bellhousing. Thinking of doing this for my son's 72 Cuda. Looking to follow this .
Yes small block belhousing & A833 works
I swpped the 6.4 in & the 4 spd conversion was done a month or 2 later
My cuda is already a small block 4 speed, will it require any adapter plate or spacer plate, also what clutch kit will it require? (Standard?).
No adapters needed. But, the gen 3's are not drilled for a pilot bushing. A Magnum pilot bearing is used, and, the input shaft needs to be shortened.
If your going to rebuild the motor can you drill the crank vs shortening the 833 shaft? Any pics or dimensions for shortening?
I suppose you could have the crank drilled while it's out, for sure. I don't know what the machine bill would be. I should have recorded the measurement. If I don't write stuff down, CRS hits immediately! I do think it was right around one inch, if using stock bell housing. I guess the reasoning for cutting the input was, simply, hitting the easy button. It can still be used behind any thing else, as long as you use the magnum roller input bearing. One of the conversions I did, the trans came from behind a cast crank 440 that hadn't been drilled. Measurement was dead on from 440 to hemi.
Should be less than $100 to just drill the end of the crank for clearance so you don't have to cut the shaft. But, I would still use the Magnum input bearing.
Thanks, for replies.
Any one used the A855 from Passon Performance? (5 Speed)
