Allison Swap

i know what ya'all are gonna say. i have had extremely good luck with allisons however. anyways isnt there a 7.3 block out there that has the ability to change the back plate for a different transmisson? or do all 7.3 blocks only have the ford trans bell housing pattern on them? i thought i seen somewhere you could get different backplates for different trannies that bolt to the back of a block with no trans pattern. the reason i ask is if i do this swap i dont want to have to make an adapter plate to bolt to the ford bellhousing pattern and shim out the flexplate or converter. does the international t444 have this set up like say out of a school bus or something?

Re: Allison Swap

School busses did come with Allies behind T444Es. Depending what Allie model you want to go with I believe the plates are all the same. I know where one is if your intrested.

Re: Allison Swap

You would have to figure out if anything else uses that bell housing.

Re: Allison Swap

i would prefer not to use an adapter plate because of having to shim the converter or flexplate or using a different flexplate. if there is a block that the allison 1000 would bolt directly to or a changeable backplate for a block with no bellhousing pattern
