How is the install going?

Is there a reason you didnt go with the 4L80E? Would the 4L60E be able to handle the torque and weight of a packard?

You could use a 4l80e but others with v8 packards successfully used the 4L60e so I thought it was good enough.

Dakota Digital and a few other make a speedo driver. Or you can use a new speedo and just put custom graphics on it so it looks like the original or you can rebuild the original with electronic guts. Or early 4L60e that are hard to find can have a mechanical spedomoeter drive. 700R4's have mechanical speedo drives.

Hi John,
I may be doing the same project on my 1952 200 sedan. mine has a standard tranny with R11 OD. I understand the kit and rear mount and 4L60e you used. may I ask what controller you're building or using for your shift controller? also have you modified the drive shaft yet? did you have to modify yoke, length etc. I already have a new radiator which includes coolant line ports. would like to hear about the column shift mod? how is your project doing?
Thanks,
Mike

I am moving so the project is at a standstill. I haven't done anything driveshaft wise. I am using a 99-04 jeep grand cherokee rear axle and driveshaft. It has disc brakes and fits stock packard wheels. I build a Megashift megasquirt trans controller. There are other controllers that are pre build. For the column shifter I got a universal column linkage kit but haven't installed yet. Hopefully later in the spring I can get the project going again.
