http://www.ihadav8.com/forum/index.php?topic=3729.0 2004r is something I know a bit about. Put out a hunt for a mid eighties Cadillac and get the AA code 2004r along with the tv cable and id grab the carb and the tv brackets. You might get the converter too so you will have a core to trade for another or get it cut and restalled if you can find the place the trans shops in the area use. Or maybe there is a place that does the local racers converters. Have them put in the roller bearings instead of the washers, furnace braze the fins and a new lock up clutch. Just have to do some detective work. Or you could send it to my guy in Weatherford, TX. They do their own converters and I like mine.
