The great Dodge slant 6 engine...these were very strong and dependable, i put 300,000 on a 1985 D100 and it was still going strong when i sold it. Your transmission is a "883" Chrysler began using "833" four speeds in passenger cars in 1964. The
transmission was designed by Chrysler and manufactured by New Process Gear Co.
Chrysler installed the 833 four speed behind the Slant Six at two different
times. The first production four speed slant sixes were the 1964-66 A-body four
speed cars. The second run of production four speed slant sixes began in 1975
with the release of the Overdrive A-833. From 1975 until 1987 the Overdrive four
speed was installed in slant six applications of A-bodies, F-bodies, and light
trucks (D100 & D200 series trucks). These applications were not ultra rare,
but the slant six four speed production figures pale in comparison to the number
of V8 cars that received A-833 four speeds. Since the A-833s installed behind
slant sixes were basically the same transmissions installed in the V8 cars, a
slant six owner looking to install an A-833 should be familiar with all the
A-833s produced, including the ones used behind V8s...There are several characteristics of the various A-833s that determine which
four speeds fit in which chassis and with which engines. For the passenger cars,
Chrysler manufactured two different length four speeds. The A/F-bodies received
a short tailshaft A-833 and the B/C/E-bodies received a long tailshaft A-833.
This difference is obvious when one of each type is sitting side by side, but
either type is easily identified when it happens to be a stand alone unit.
If you are looking to replace your truck tranny, you will need to find another one out of a truck that had the slant 6 engine for it to be a direct bolt up. Chrysler made several variations.
1975 thru 1987 Overdrive 3.09:1 - 1.67:1 - 1:1 - 0.73:1 (Trucks used a 0.71:1
Plug wire order is: 153624 on six cyl 4.0 and 18436572 for v8. #1 cylinder on 6cyl is the front one and on V8 is front on driver side. 1357 left side, 2468 right side. #1 on cap is easily found by turning the crankshaft till the timing mark aligns with 0. but that can be 180 degrees off unless rotor points away from the block (6) or towards the front of the engine (8)..
yes a transmission should bolt up to the v8 as long as it's stays a small block and not a big block , i'm sure the tranny bolt pattern will bolt on a small block or a v6 /but the v6 transmission wont last long on a v8 :) gl on your project..
