View Full Version : Apuzzo/Reeves Racing 2.0/2.2/2.4/2.5 to A904 Auto Trans Adapters

05-28-2015, 02:54 PM
I have been working on an adapter plate for 2.2/2.5 to A904 small block style auto trans with Anthony Apuzzo. Final fitment has been tested and finished. Since the 2.0/2.4 adapter plate already existed and has been tested/finished, we decided to make a combo plate that included all 4 engine combinations to bolt to a small block style A904 automatic trans.

This plate will bolt to the back of a 2.0/2.2/2.4/2.5 liter Chrysler block, and the small block A904 trans will then bolt to the plate.

You will need to use the 2.0/2.2/2.4/2.5 flex plate and starter. The starter will need it's tapped holes drilled out and new hardware will be needed to attach starter to the adapter plate. The reason for this is for ease of changing the starter down the road (so you won't have to pull the motor or trans).

It will require a custom torque converter to match the style of flexplate being used to the input of the 904 trans. You can get this from Anthony Apuzzo, or source your own.

This plate will leave gaps at the top and bottom. You can use your factory tins to block these holes if you wish. If you do this, you will need to slightly modify them to clear everything properly (see pics).

Price is $300 shipped. What you will get is a custom CNC'd aluminum adapter plate and alignment dowels. We must get 10 to get this done. That being said though, this is not the only group buy their will be. Anthony will also be selling them on other 2.0/2.4 sites. I will keep this updated with a tally.

Here is some pics of the 2.2/2.5 adapter plate design and fitting:

I should give you a call James, been kicking around the idea of a 2.5 Turbo in my Dart with a 44RH trans.

Is the 904 bolt pattern the same as any of the manual transmissions of late?

right now I'm planning on using the ma5 out of the solstice Colorado hummer because I want a stick and rwd

Its the Chrysler small block V8 pattern. 3.9/5.2/5.9 or 3.7/4.7/5.7

The Dakota or Liberty bell housing would be a direct fit and not require an adapter.

Is Anthony the guy with the 2.4T Colt? I spoke with him about one of these in the past. So I'm interested in where this is going.

yup thats Anthony :)

Also Reeves thanks for getting together with Anthony on this ! One thing I see is if I could suggest is, since your not drilling and tapping the starter holes, are you going to include a template for marking the holes? It would help some out that are not super skilled in fabrication.

The starter holes are drilled and tapped! All you have to do is drill the wrinkles (threads) out of your current starter!

^^what Mike said.
I'd also be curious to know. I tossed around the idea of a 2.4 turbo in my 64 Nova but might be easier if could keep my TH700R4 that resides in there currently.

In which case i might just be interested in 2 adapters total.

Reeves

A GM transmission can be adapted by attaching a small block Mopar SFI bellhousing to a TH400 or Powerglide if desired.

Reeves, if you were to bolt that piece to the thing in the center with the 8 holes, I bet that would make it stronger.

Since the 2.4L turbo motors are becoming so common and cheap to buy these days, I would love to drop one in my 66 2dr Valiant. It would be lighter and have 100+ more HP than my slant 6. I already have an 8 3/4" and Built A904 I would just need this adapter and torque converter to get me going. Please tell me they can still me had??

Nope, hence the "H" in the nomenclature. Hydraulic.

Overdrive and lockup can be actuated with simple pressure switches or in my case used a single with time delay relays.

It was sarcastic of me, yes. But these are two stand-up guys. Don't worry it will happen.
Obviously your project is further along than anyone else's, so you are in a hurry.
If it helps, you can have my place in the line and i'll take the later one.

I was not doubting their integrity or I would have never agreed to participate in group buy, I was merely curious on how it was going. I understand you were being facetious and maybe I did it poorly but so was I. It can be difficult to convey tone of voice in written form...

I am not that concerned with my position in line nor am I in a super big hurry, though I will admit I am quite excited to get mine.

I have had this idea a long time and would love to see others reactions to my car at a car meet or get-together. Should be interesting. I suspect it will get one of two reactions, Supportive and not so supportive.

A long long time ago I had a 1972 Scamp with all the 340 Duster Twister options including the Sharktooth Grille. The grille really made the look of that car. It is my favorite of all the Mopar looks even more than the 71 'Cuda. But at the moment I have this 66 Valiant 100 2dr post I have wanted to bring back to life that has a 225 and a 3 on the tree that hasn't run is 10+ years. I was going to drop in a 360 4spd set up but I have already done that before in a 65 'Cuda and wanted to go in a different direction with this Valiant. One that not many have gone. Ever since I test drove a SRT/4 back in 2003 I wanted to see if that engine could be put in a RWD application. Now I believe I can. :)

I want to make sure I get it going and then I'll post a thread. I know no one likes to read half a story.

I am just at the point of getting the motor and plate to work together but not sure why the flywheel I have is too small for the starter I have. I am having difficulties finding info on flywheel sizes, tooth counts and starter differences.

The 2.0/2.4 flexplate/flywheel is much smaller diameter than the 2.2/2.5. You have to use the 2.0/2.4 starter in the proper starter hole on the plate. Or use 2.2/2.5 flexplate and 2.2/2.5 starter in the proper hole on plate.
