    I think the passages cast into the case in the valve body area are different in 64 vs 65 and later. I have a bare 65 case I can take pictures of if you want to compare

    Thanks, I have a few cores myself. Studying my books and service manuals it looks possible. I don't want to lead anyone a stray. If someone has tried this before and it doesn't work I would like to learn from their experience.

    I have always heard that the 64 was stand alone different in a number of ways that make it incompatible with later valve bodies and other parts.

    Getting back
    Did you get a chance to try this transmission out before you installed it? I rebuilt the 65 trans I put in my 64 before installing. While the fluid didn't look bad there was quite a bit of rust in the valve body. Something to think about. Ken
