I need some learning on the Dodge overdrive transmissions.

I have a 1972 D200 with a 318 727 auto and a D60 with 4:10 gears. I would like to slide in an overdrive tranny in place of the 727. My issue is I know less than zero about Mopar trannies. Can someone enlighten my on what is out there and what would work with my application? Also, is there a good auto tranny out there by Mopar that is not electronic?

All the OD trans use electric solenoids for OD and lockup converter.

The gasser trucks normaly used the 518 family of trans. It can be found as a nonlock converter or a lockup. It just depends on the year.

For an OD trans look in the early 90's trucks. To tell the trans you want. Look by the rear trans cooler line. There is a wiring plug facing upwards towards the floor pan. If that plug is two wire. That mean OD trans. If it is a 3 wire plug. That means OD and lockup converter. If the trans has more than 3 wires in that plug. Walk away from it.

Now on the gassers. A 360 C.I. engine is an external balanced engine. A 318 C.I is a internal balanced engine. They use different converters. So be carefull there.
