I shouldnt even be thinking about, what im thinking about but........

What are the differnt bolt bellhousing bolt pattens availible for the torqueflite 727? I know of these.

the small block Chrysler (same as dodge 318/360 i think)
big block Chrysler
I think the Diesel dodge is on its own too
There are some buick 350s with the 727 so im guessing that one is different too?

Thanks for the info guys. I have already done a swap with a 47Rh, But i was actually looking into another swap after another member did one without OD and is having some good reports. But thanks for the heads up on the different patterns!

Maybe we're both crazy, but being a Chrysler guy, I completely understand why you were thinking of it, because I have too.

If you look around enough, you can find SOMETHING to put a 727 behind almost anything. They've been almost as widely used as the TH350/400, C6, and the r4. You can put them behind almost anything, and they just keep going. Case in point, the early Cummins Dodges had them (as you mentioned I guess). Partially because of parts availability on Chrysler's end, but also because you can pretty much launch bricks out of a water balloon launcher @ them, and they keep going. HAPPILY.

Whatever you put it behind though, will absolutely HAVE to have an ext. overdrive, if you give 2 piles about gas mileage. Or find you a 518 (or a 519 as well, I believe?), they're basically a 727 w/ elec. overdrive. You see one out of a truck or jeep and its really funny how similar they are. Although I'm not sure if you'll find a bellhousing for those that will fit what I think you're thinking.
