Hey all..
Im knee deep in a engine rebuild on my 308 vk. Found out the block i had was stuffed so i got a new block. its a mint standard new block which im gona bore out to 60 thou..anyway
problem is that my trans is a turbo 350 and the new block ive got is standard holden stud pattern.
Im thinkn about getn one of them adaptor plates but im unsure about them.. ie does ur driveshaft have to be shortend or is there any problem that may go with these plates??
other option is find a chev trans stud pattern block which are hard to find round these ways
any help would be awsome!!
cheers

Very thirsty VT & VH project under way! YAY!!
I had a similar issue recently but found a mob in Melbourne who to a rebuild T350 with a Trimatic pattern. Haven't got the motor going yet so I don't know how good their work is. I picked one up from Tranzco. They have an eBay store as well. Could be an option.

look into getting the block re-drilled to a turbo pattern adaptor plates tend to allow flex which kills the tranny. Was the story in the 90's last time I had anything to do with adaptor plates tri block to turbo trans.
