a 350 and 400 converter will exchange, but the pg is different the inner spline is not the same and it will not drive the input. even tho the converter can be installed in the front pump. it wont work, dont make this mistake, ive seen it done before....ford5

Here is the real story. The stator support must be machined for a t-350 style input shaft bushing then an aftermarket t-350 style powerglide input shaft must be purchased and installed

Gahainsey is right, you have to use a powerglide pump with the stator support machined out and a bushing installed. An aftermarket input shaft with turbo splines has to be used. The reason for the bushing is powerglides have a support bushing in the converter that a turbo does not have. It will work without the bushing for about two races! Then it wipes out the converter and pump
