Tech Question

Paul Prekeris, Old Bridge, NJ, Plymouth Cuda 426

I read your brief article on A833 Hemi 4spds. I am inpossession of an A833 syncroless 18 spline 4 spd. No syncros or dogs. I’mtrying to understand if this type of transmission was ever offered directfrom mopar. Thanks in advance Paul


No. Chrysler offered tech info on how to achieve this crash-box setup,referred to by MaMopar as “Slick Shift” back in the day, but it was neverOEM in any vehicle.

By the way, it may not have the stop rings, but if there’s no dog teethwhatsoever on the speed gears, you’re a pedestrian! (Or, you enjoy drivinglong distances in reverse!)
