I think it was 1 1/4" npt. Might have been 1 1/2", but I think 1 1/4" I do remember that the holes in the block are just the right size and don't need to be drilled out any larger.

Didn't notch it. If I remember, the filter adapter doesn't thread in very far.

I use a 1/2 npt plug. No need to go all the way to 3/4. A 1/2npt uses a 23/32 drill and the plug has a max od of .840, so it will easily fill the 5/8 hole you have.

Just my opinion.
A powerglide is lighter than a C-6 with much lighter internal rotating parts.

It's stronger than a C-4. Besides the strength, the powerglide has a much more surface area on...

67-70 is 54"
65-66 is 52"
61-73 is 56"

I once used a 9" from a 73 in my 69.
Bought wheels with 1" more back spacing to make up for the extra width.
