Hudson Installation Instructions
Installation Instruction’s for Chevy Transmission-to-Hudson 308 series Adapter Kit
These instructions assume that the installer has more than a small amount of mechanical skill and know how.
While performing this installation, please remember a few simple rules.
(1)-Install all bolts in a particular sequence before tightening any.
(2)-Never force anything.
(3)-Lubricate bolt threads.
(4) Trial fit everything to make sure it will fit. See rule #2.
Make sure that there is about 1/8 of an inch clearance between the torque converter and the flywheel after the transmission is tight to the engine adapter with the supplied spacers installed between the torque converter and flywheel. This means that you should be able to move the torque converter forward to the spacers the distance indicated.
If you have more distance than that indicated, you could have a bad crankshaft thrust bearing.
1. Install adapter using the 7 x 7/16 x 14 flathead capscrews from the rear of the block. The adapter is a tight fit over the dowel pins. Make sure the dowels are in place and free of burrs. Tap the adapter into place. A tight fit insures that the plate is located correctly. You may have to grind the dowel pins shorter.
2. Install the supplied flexplate and crank spacer using the supplied bolts and washers.
3. Install starter using 1/4 x 28 capscrews provided.
This kit should work with any Chevrolet V8 style automatic transmission.
