For those of you who can't sleep at night wondering about the differences between these two styles of crossmembers...I pulled a '73 Buick Regal dual hump crossmember the other day and thought I'd compare it to a '73 Chevelle dual hump ( I don't have a life!). Both are off a TH350. It's a mystery to me why the two GM Divisions used different style crossmembers, but here's what I learned:

1) Overall length is the same (52 1/2")
2) Ctr-to-ctr distance of mtg holes are the same (51")
3) Buick weighs 16 1/2 lbs vs Chevy at 19 3/4 lbs

Does anyone know for sure if these fit the TH400?

So, the mounting pad between the crossmember and tranny must be the same, also?

With all the extra holes in the frame, the cross member on a Chevy will fit the TH400 OK by moving it to fit. I have a '73 cross member in the '75 Elco, with a 400 trans......
