Q\'s on D44 swap
Hello, its me but ya'll don't know it. Let me give you a run down on what I'm doing with my truck so any obstacles you might see, maybe I could be ready for them (if there is such a thing). What I have is a 84 GMC 1/2ton ,when it was stock it had a 305ci,700R4 tranny,208 T-case, 10bolt frt. and rears with 2.73 gears. Yes, I said 2.73's. So far I swapped the motor to a built 462ci. with TRW flat top pistons,H.S.roller rockers,RV cam, Edle.Performer intake, Holly 750cfm carb. etc,,. The 700 burned out within hours of the motor swap and was replaced with a T350. (could'nt find a 400). The 208 T-case is still there but the running gears have to go. I have a 14b FF with 4.10 gears and a D44 with 4.09 gears. Best I can tell, its a direct swap except: U-bolt and drive shaft length. The 14 and 44 are out of a 73 chevy 3/4ton. Will the brake line fittings match?, can I use all my steering stuff off the 10bolt ?,etc,,. I know there must be something I'm not thinking about. Any addvice or ideas would be great, Thanks.
