American Powertrain Transmission Kits for 1973-1987 Pickups

With Chevy/GMC Square Bodies all the rage, American Powertrain the nation’s leading distributor of TREMEC transmissions, is introducing a Square Body Chevy/GMC 4×4 kit for the TREMEC TR-4050™ 5-speed, 4WD manual transmission designed to fit 1973 – 1987 pickups and SUVs including Suburbans, Jimmys and Chevy Blazers.

The new American Powertrain Square Body kit includes everything needed to install a 4×4 TR-4050 5-speed 4WD transmission including an aluminum CNC machined Bellhousing, Hydramax hydraulic clutch and components, flywheel and bolts, trans mount, pilot bearing, harness, and shifter, shifter knob, transfer case adapter for 10-spline NP205 and all necessary hardware. Options are available for upgrades including shifter, clutch and more. Based on the heavy duty TREMEC TR-4050, this kit takes advantage of the low gearing for 4×4 applications with larger tires and high torque loads. The 4050 can handle up to 600ft/lbs. of torque and is fully synchronized for smooth shifting and great highway manners. 

As the world’s largest TREMEC dealer, American Powertrain is expert at developing kits that are specially prepared to fit the vehicle they are designed for to ensure a worry-free installation.
