AMC Turbo 400 Auto Trans

Does anyone know if an AMC Turbo 400 has the same transmission case as a Chevy Turbo 400? I crack the housing on my transmission and can get the housing to a AMC very cheap, just need to know if it will work.

The bellhousing bolt patterns are different.
It will not bolt up to your chevy motor- if that's what your trying to do.
Chevy th400 are very plentiful and you should't have a problem finding one in a wrecking yard.

The case and the output shaft are the only differences. You can find a chevy TH400 and put your AMC TH400 output shaft in it.

Re: AMC Turbo 400 Auto Trans

Wait a minute! [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] I'm kinda new to this but I have a '79 CJ7 with an AMC TH400 bolted somehow to a Chevy 350. According the the previous posts that is not possible. I did not do the engine swap so I don't know the details. I am pretty sure that the TH400 is made for an AMC from the casting number on the tranny itself.

Any ideas?

Post some pictures or email some to me and I'll see if I can solve the mystery.
