    Will this engine accept the stock 904 trans in my 70 Coronet? or will i have to get a small block 727 trans? if so, will it destroy my 904? Thank you.

    Asked by: Bryce T
    Bryce, when we run the engines here we do not have them hooked up to transmissions to test their durability. If it is a stock transmission at the very least I would recommend a freshen up before it is installed back into the vehicle.
