Re: T-18 pricing?
$1800 is ridiculous. I know a place that sells REBUILT ford cased T-18's with 6.32-1 and ford input, adapted with a machined and surface ground STEEL adapter to 20 transfer starting at $850. That comes with a new mount and pilot bushing. They also modify the Ford cases to bolt directly up to GM bellhousings. If interested E-mail me and I will give you the info. They usually can ship one to the lower 48 for about $75. They also do T-18's to 300, and build a 700r4 to 300 output shaft, plus a turbo 350 to 300 output shaft. They are now prototyping a short shaft conversion for the 300 that uses a chromemoly shaft (4130 if I remember correctly). It is not the monster 35 spline or whatever like the AA unit but it will be considerably stronger than stock. Plus you can convert your long output to a short one. Nickmil.
