Is anybody interested in it? Smaller than the 2004r and bolts up to the BOP bellhousing. Some of the Buick guys really like them, might work well in am MGB behind a Buick V6 or V8. About 50K miles on it.

Yup, should be about same torque capacity as T350,( identical size input). I always wanted to make a switch pitch T350. Oh well.

I have a 64 Buick special 300 ci with an automatic. I assume it is a 2 speed and would love to get rid of the transmission. I don't know if it is switch pitch, how would I id the transmission?

The only automatic used behind the 300 motor was the two speed Super Turbine 300. All Buick and Olds versions of that trans were switch pitch. Look at the electrical connector on the trans case. If it has two terminals, it is a switch pitch.
