Jack,
What you have to understand is that in Texan "When your rod gets to close to a gyroscopic action" to prevent it from breaking, you need a flywheel.

Well the autopsy has be done---the professional supposition--- we had some mild detonation-- we had rod bolts that didn't stretch to specs with the published torque specs allowing the nuts to back off--a transmission that worked its way into neutral causing a sudden high rev no load situation ---wham bam-- no thank you mam-- carnage-- the block is repairable--the heads maybe repairable as well as some destroyed rockers push rods ect ect  we may build a " lisc up eng" out of these and other parts left over---pondering where we go from here, eng wise

 We are committed to building a new B'Ville axle by retubing our Camaro housings-- as well as  cleaning up the cockpit. francis and I are working on plans to fair the frt and rear axles.

Sparky, unless the rear axle is well and truly bent you should be able to straighten it with heat and cooling. It's a pretty standard procedure with oval track cars. You may want to check on the procedure with one or two of the local late model racers.

Sparky,
Did you ever consider a B and J four speed trans? They are really not that expensive.
If you want I can run a simulation for you with each transmission to see what works best. Also, a 4L80 e might be a good choice.
The over drive shift is more discrete than the 2-3 shift that you have with a stock TH400.
Btw, sorry for the log absence from replying to your thread. Tapatalk was giving me major issue over the last year and locked me out of your thread.

Well we are getting a little more informed the more we dig into this clutch thing---haven't made final decisions yet.

Does anyone have any experience with clutch delays, usually called CDV or clutch delay valves?

While I'm not you Sparky & can't decide for you, I would just park a 4L80 with a hand full of switches on the back of it. We have a stock 'used' one from a van on the back of a twin turbo Duramax in a street rod that just won't quit! The only thing you would need to look into is that it has ample oiling supply to the center of the overdrive planetary. I would have run one on the back of the KB but I didn't want the front driveline spinning at overdrive RPM so I used a 400 then stepped it up at the pinions.
