Aluminum valve body for Turbo 350

Post by geraldtson » Sat Nov 11, 2017 9:02 pm

Anyone know where to find aluminum valve body for THM 350? Everyone i ask said they've never heard of one so after months of digging through old hot rod books i finally found my old Ron Sessions book from the 80's and it clearly shows a discontinued B&M Aluminum valve body. Also says Fairbanks,Art Carr, and Ati sold them but i cant find one.I know the Powerglides have consumed most all the HP stuff but i just don't understand why there's no availability for a 350? Finally company's are making lightweight aluminum forward and direct drums for 350's and even Ati now offers a new aluminum 350 pump half as well as many other LW parts but no valve body? I'm wanting to do an all LW build on one for Pro Street/race application and i like the 350. Please don't advise me on powerglide or 400 not interested i need the gear for 3300 lb car and i don't like weight or drag of 400. I know all about PG's used them for years with great success but not for this one. I want an all out LW 350 THM. Have used them for years on all out race cars and never broke a case. I figure speed talk is my only hope? Any help??

Thanks!!

I also tried finding an aluminium valve body for a T350. No luck. Really surprised, I thought there would still be a good market for them. Two takers here already!
