Item Description

Starting in 1962 all the way through 1972, Chevrolet manufactured a staggering 17 million aluminum Powerglide transmissions. In spite of the huge production numbers, the Powerglide was not considered a performance tranny. However, it did go on to become the dominant automatic transmission used in modern motorsports. Chevy's Powerglide is the auto trans of choice for circle track and drag racers alike, and you will find Powerglides installed in a wide variety of vehicles, from street to strip to Top Sportsman.

In this repair and service book, author Carl H. Munroe provides a detailed and comprehensive reference guide to the Powerglide, ranging from a factory-stock rebuild to an all-out race transmission. The guide offers step-by-step instructions and helpful tips for transmission servicing, identification, removal, inspection, repair and rebuilding power glide transmission. There's even a troubleshooting section to help diagnose and fix transmission problems.

This repair and Powerglide rebuild book is priced competitively and is an affordable resource for any Chevy Powerglide enthusiast. The book is easy to use and comes backed by The Motor Bookstore's money back guarantee.
