Reid Racing's 2-piece Superglide transmission case allows use behind all popular engine combinations. Starting with the time-proven 1-piece Superglide, Reid Racing engineers decided against the cut-it-in-half approach and specifically designed this case to be used as a 2-piece unit.
The full 360 degrees reinforced mounting flange provides the needed rigidity and stiffness, while extra thickness in critical areas adds strength to the rear of the case and eliminates the need for an internal liner. Unlike our sand-cast competitors, our permanent mold casting process is used for extremely accurate, tough, porosity-free cases. Adapter bell housings and flexplates are available for most popular engine combinations; See below.
No internal or external shields required; the case is SFI 4.1 Certified* Uses all stock and aftermarket internals; no oddball parts. Standard bell housing flange fits Reid Racing's full line of SFI 30.1 bell housing, as well as SFI 6.x cans from Browell, Trick Titanium, Quicktime, and others. The indexing ring on the oversized flange properly centers bell housing.
The front pump can be installed with or without the bellhousing attached. Made by a permanent mold process from heat-treated aircraft-grade aluminum.
This process is stronger, more ductile, and more accurate than competitors' brittle sand castings. Oil pan flanges are thickened to stiffen the case.
Beefed-up oil pump area prevents front case distortion under high horsepower. Minimizes flexing which causes gear misalignment and breakage.
This case does not leak! Oil pump mounting bolt holes heli coiled to prevent thread failures. Patented adjustable transbrake release.
Adjustment bolt varies both the quickness and the rate of release which varies the reaction time and the hit of the tires. Predrilled for double dump trans brake.
Redesigned oil passages radically improve the release time of the trans brake and allow instant application.
Patented reverse piston bleed hole vents air from piston area and increases trans brake consistency. No need for external shields or bottom straps.
Each case is thoroughly inspected at every step of its production. You can be assured that you will not have the problems associated with porosity and misalignment from poor castings or inferior machining as with other cases.
This new case gives a dramatic strength increase over the standard-sized Powerglide output shaft and has a roller bearing.
