Best bet is to buy a book like easoneason did. They usually cover the available OEM variations. They came with various gear ratios and tailshaft housing lengths, with different input shaft splines for different torque converters, with and without rear pump, fluid cooled and (shudder
) air cooled. The books usually tell you what to look for.
The thing is that every piece used in powerglides has multiple choices available in the hot rod/drag race community. You can build anything from stock to a monster that can handle a 1000 HP.
Whatever you do, unless your are building something very light, stay away from the air cooled PGs (they dont have cooler line fittings)
As yoo can tell, I just love glides.
