    Can anyone tell me if a TH350 from a 71 will fit in a 79...(Camaro)? I need to know if the cross member is the same...

    Should bolt right in, if it had a th350 before.
    I believe only the th400 crossmember is different.

    If it was pulled from another Camaro (or almost any passenger car) it will have the proper tail shaft/housing and will be a direct bolt-in job with the proper crossmember.

    Yup, from a 71 Camaro to a 79 Camaro...
    I need to know the crossmember should be the same?

    there have been a few oddball TH350 models over the years, mostly in truck applications. since you are using a passenger car trans in a passenger car application, the cross member will be the same and fit without issue. Good luck.

    Yeah, the TH400 used a different crossmember.
