The B&M (Quicksilver) linkage you have is for a 3 speed auto trans L1 L2 D! The 700-R4 has a shift pattern of L1 L2 D &OD!!!!

If memmory serves me correct its been a while since last tranny rebuild and adjustment
on a 700-r4 type transmission
make sure that the shim kit was used properly with this transmission cause wrong sized length of linkage can make the trans. shift improperly
you have the linkage under neith adjusted wrong the shift bar on tranny should face 90 degrees up towards front of vehicle engine for proper adjustment

My problem is that the manual transmission is stuck in 4th gear. I was backing up when I went to put it into 1st the shifter was stuck. The clutch works to disengage the gears but the shifter won't...


That cylinder is known as the clutch slave cylinder. It should push against the clutch fork every time the clutch pedal is depressed to allow gear changes. If it doesn't, suspect a faulty slave cylinder, or clutch master cylinder.

Automatic transmission slipping when in overdrive but strong in drive 3


these trucks came with a 700 r4 transmission an the overdrive gear is considerably smaller than the first 3 gears which allows it to run at a much lower rpm at highway speeds but unfortuneatly this gear also can burn up really easy, most commen causes for it burning out would be from towing cars boats etc in overdrive

What transmission come out in a 1983 chevy silverado


It should be the 700 r4 transmission with the 350 block,
unless someone changed it out, it could be a turbo 350, if the truck is a 3/4 ton.
if you have 3 gears and over drive it is a 700 r4
only 3 gears turbo 350

I have 58 chevy apache and have a turbo 400 transmission. It does 60 mph at 3000 rpm's. I would like to change the entire rear end so that it goes 60 mph at approx 2200 rpm. I now have a 350 engine in...


I don't think you can get a rear end that high sped, the best I've ever seen is a 3.2 something . I had that with a 305 and my engine revved higher than 2200 with that. I think you would be better off with a 700R4 transmission from the early-mid 80's. It should bolt on and the overdrive works off an electric/vaccuum switch mounted on the firewall. Hope this helps.

Will a turbo 350 fit into a 1990 gmc halfton that has a 700 r4 in it


It will mate to the engine, but the turbo 350 is shorter then the 700R4 and your going to loose the lower first gear ratio in the 700R4 and the OD that the Turbo 350 don't have. It can be done, but your going to have to relocate the transmission cross member and have a longer drive shaft made.

Good luck.

What size engine and transmission do i need for 24inch rims?


best bang for your buck 350 cid with a turbo 350 or 700r4 ... the 350 engine can be stroked out to 383 using the internals:pistons and crank from a 400 in big block... but just stroking a 350 on a hot tranny with low gears to drive those big wheels is important get a 4;11 low gear ratio you ll be able to drag that monster.
