Novak vs. Advance Adapter

I have a bit of a delima. I need to order the engine to transmission adapter for an AMC 360 to a GM automatic. I also will need a TV cable. What would be the best (not necessarily cheapest) parts to get? I assume all I need are the adapter plate kit, flex plate, and TV cable. TIA

Re: Novak vs. Advance Adapter

My experience with both Novak and Advance is the Novak stuff is more accurately machined, a better fit, less touch-up needed.

Trouble is, Novak doesn't have as many goodies as Advance, sometimes you are stuck.

Re: Novak vs. Advance Adapter

Will, I have posted this before but I think its worth repeating. My AA adapter fit just fine (Ford T-18 to 304) I called AA then called "No Excuses" in New Jersey. They sold me AA's adapter for $100 less than AA wanted. Now thats been a few years ago but I'd give them a call and check prices.

no touch up needed on a th350-D300 adapter, the holes were a perfect match to the studs.. tight.. but nice.. tapped right on with a mallot.

Re: Novak vs. Advance Adapter

I have not used any of Novak's stuff, but I have talked to them quite a bit. They seemed to really know thier stuff. Next time I need any kind of adaptor, It'll be from them. I have used AA. I have thier np435 to Np 231 adaptor and the SYE kit. I did not have any problems with the fit of the products, but the customer service sucked. I had a clutch problem with the NP 435 swap and I honestly believe he knew the solution, but would not give me the info in an attempt sell me the AA conversion bellhouising. Screw AA!

Re: Novak vs. Advance Adapter

Hey Will,

This doesn't answer your question, but why don't you just use a TF727 from a G. Wagon. You can probably get one for less that the price of the adapters. What kind of GM tranny are planning to use?

Later,
Tom

Re: Novak vs. Advance Adapter

I was very pleased with my Novak adapter and there customer service is second to none. If they were closer, I swear they would have installed it for me! (don't you wish jdogg?)

Re: Novak vs. Advance Adapter

LOL, maybe... I'd second the comments on Novak's customer service though. Top notch! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
