Yes, the 700 "series" goes from the 700-700-001 to the 700-700-093 AND includes the 700-700 (A-B) to the 700-799 model numbers....

Yours would be a 700-708b model of the 700 series we talk about...

Nope not all the same.... they vary in the number of gears, (some 4 speed, some 5 speed), gear ratios, output ratio, etc. etc. Most parts are interchangeable to a certain extent from one to the other however. i.e. they will all fit in the other cases, they should all fit on the other shafts, but gear ratios on individual gears may be something you want to take a look at. Count teeth on the gears and divide to see how close you are.

Any 700 series is a good candidate for build, some are simply better than others as a result of incorporating steel input and bevel gears from factory.

  I got a foote out of a junk yard a year back and this year I am going to try it out in the IMOW class. I took it apart and cleaned it up and two trys later, I had a working tranny. If it dies on me I will race prep a 700 and use it.

I never actually used mine, simply because the gears were so badly worn, but I do know that they only let you shift up one gear at a time, then you have to move the shifter back slightly to move up to the next gear. The casing is made rather cheaply so I wouldn't think it would be much good for racing.

I took a couple pics. The first is the 2600 5 speed, the second I'm not sure of. It's a 3 speed cross shift. Soory about the poor quality, I had to convert them to .gif files

How do they compare price wise? Would a foote be more for a single clinder stock flathead, super stock type of class and a peerless would be more for engines that make more power?
