Re: Powerglide into 83LTD?
sorry I forgot to say. I had a custom crossmember made up by Barney of Barney's Exhausts. No idea on cost but will let you know when I get the bill. I almost got my car back today. Still playing on the dyno.
You can use a standard cross member depending on what extractors your using. I'm pretty sure 4-2-1's will work without issues.  Standard crossmember needs the bolt holes elongtated a few mm.
Should also add if you have 4->1 extractors they may foul the glides pan. Passenger side @ the linkage and driverside completely fouls the pan.
