How strong is a-727 transmission?
The strength of the 727 is rarely contested. From the factory, they came against engines ranging up to the 426 Hemi. They are unusually strong transmissions, seeing service with hotrodders and heavier truck applications. The duty range of the 727 is often likened to the GM TH400 and Ford C6 automatics.
How much HP can a 727 handle?
The 727 is a relatively simple piece when compared to other automatic transmissions, and its strength is a function of that simplicity. We’ve put stock TorqueFlite transmissions behind big-blocks pushing upwards of 600 hp and found they not only survive, but perform quite well.
Does a 727 transmission have overdrive?
Overdrive was added to the 727 and the numbers were changed, sometime in the mid 90’s.
Are 727 transmissions any good?
The A-727 transmission is robust and highly adaptable in several applications which can be attributed to its widespread use in about 30 years. Its strength meant it could be used in Chrysler cars and non-Mopar applications such as work trucks as well as high-performance vehicles like sports cars.
How many gears does a 727 have?
The A-727 is a three-speed transmission that was featured prominently in Mopar cars with larger engine sizes, but it was also used in many other makes as an original equipment item. Most of the other non-Mopar applications are either in work trucks or in high-end performance sports cars.
What kind of transmission fluid does a 727 take?
There was an article about using Dexron6 in the 727/904’s that originally recommended DexronII. It was discussed on the forum. I think most agreed with the article, that a 727/904 that originally DexronII was recommended, you could switch to ATF+4 or Dexron6, both would be a better fluid.
How much fluid does a 727 transmission hold?
8 to 9-1/2 qts.
What is the TorqueFlite transmission?
TorqueFlite (also seen as Torqueflite) is the trademarked name of Chrysler Corporation’s automatic transmissions, starting with the three-speed unit introduced late in the 1956 model year as a successor to Chrysler’s two-speed PowerFlite.
What’s the difference between a 904 and a 727 transmission?
Generally, a 727 shifter lever is straight and a 904 is offset (though some applications have different length of levers to compensate for vehicle model/engine combinations). Remember, only smallblocks have 904 derivative transmissions, though some came with 727’s (i.e. certain truck and HP car models).
What is the strongest GM transmission?
The 10L90E is by far the biggest and heaviest modern automatic transmission in GM history, but it’s also the strongest and offers amazing performance and economy when matched with a Gen V LT engine.
