Turbo Hydra-Matic

Posted by Anders on January 12, 2018 at 2:14pm 6 Comments

THM400 or Turbo 400, not sure what you guys talking about?

I have not found any reference in the 1964 Shop Manual to THM400 or any word with 400 attached to. Also checking my 1966 Shop Manual and 400 is not present there either, only Turbo Hydra-Matic. Serviceman bulletins for 1964 does also NOT state 400. Sales brochure does not use 400.…
