Is there a kit that would allow the use of a powerglide or a TH350 with a Toyota 22r engine?

Mark,

I'm not aware of a kit available. You might want to cruise around the web  and see if you can find someone that has them. If not, a good machine shop should be able to make an adapter plate with the engine block and transmission case as a template.

I have a '64 Chevy II , I'm building a 500 horse small block and backing it with a PG transmission. What gear ratio should I run? 4.11,4.56?  The stall speed will be 3,800, my peak rpm is 7,200.  The car will see light duty on the street.

Jesse,

If you go to our website, mikestransmission.com, and click on the torque converter data sheet,you'll see the form we use to view total car setup. This sheet gives us a lot of vital information about a vehicle so we can make a decision about gear ratios, torque converters, etc. In other words, there are a lot of things that contribute to a setup. A lot more then just tire size and gear ratio.
