Advice on a 727 automatic transmission

March 1, 2011 | By Richard Prince


I am in the process of putting a 1962 Dodge Town Wagon back together. I have the 727 automatic transmission that has the park brake on the back of the transmission. I’m trying to find a picture of the park brake apart so I can put it back together again. Also, I’m trying to find parts and specs for the drive shaft. Any ideas?


The factory transmission service and rebuild manual will be quite helpful for you. A book called Torqueflite A-727 Transmission Handbook, by Carl H.

Munroe, also has a wealth of information about your 727 transmission, including a diagram showing the rear park brake assembly. The factory chassis service manual will help you with the drive shaft.

For drive shaft parts, give Valley Vintage Auto Parts ( a shout. They have a very large inventory of vintage Chrysler parts going all the way back to around 1935.
