Vasco 300 Steel
Pro-X Input Shafts
Any successful racer knows, ''To finish first, you must first finish.'' That's the idea behind the TCI Pro-X Drag Race GM Powerglide Input Shafts. These two input shafts, one for the standard Powerglide pump or TCI Gerotor pump 890-743500 and one for the TCI ringless Gerotor pump 890-743510 transmissions, incorporate a unique proprietary construction material and a special heat-treated process to prevent input shaft breakage. The direct replacement Pro-X standard configuration input shaft 890-749602 can handle up to 2000 hp applications.
The Pro-X Ringless design input shaft 890-749603 contains a special bushing to replace load-limiting internal rings, that enlarges the shaft diameter for increased strength. The shaft's full cooler circuit flow has been reengineered to improve the torque converter function, making it more efficient, with better lubrication, resulting in improved strength and durability over other types of ringless input shafts. TCI's Ringless input shaft can handle up to 2500+ hp applications, and requires installation of a TCI Gerotor pump 890-743510 for proper operation.
Vaccu Melt 300 & Vasco 300
TCI offers input shafts made form aircraft quality Vaccu Melt 300 steel billet and Vasco 300 material. Engines producing over 800 horsepower need the Vasco 300 for maximum reliability.
The Turbo-spline shaft allows installation of a 30 spline Turbo-350/500 converter in your Powerglide. These shafts require some minor machining of the stator support to accommodate the included turbo support bushing. We also offer input shafts that will allow the use of a 17-spline Powerglide converter with a Turbo-350/400 transmission.
WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
WARNING: The wires of these products contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
