Videos on Rebuilding the Torqueflite 727

Since we are going to have to rebuild the transmission in our Scout II project, I have been searching for information on the Torqueflite 727.  I found this video on Youtube of a group doing just that for a high performance build.  Thought I would share:

Re: RustyBucket's 1972 Scout II Revitalization

Here is a video of where we are at this point.  Hopefully soon we will have an update on some additional progress.
