I have a powerglide in a big tire car that make 850-900hp. I built the glide for it and after the first outing noticed the front yoke had a lot more play in it that it did initially. I put a new rear bushing in the tail housing but think maybe I should move to a heavy duty tail with a bearing. What is the strongest way to run this setup? Any suggestions appreciated.

Check your pinion angle!

Pinion angle is good.

Is there a good heavy tail housing that I could put on the stock glide case with a bearing that would require no other mods?

I think if you go with a good tailshaft with a roller bearing, you need to get a new slip yoke that is nitrite coated. I think it has to do with wear. I get mine from Strange. About $180

If you can't keep a bushing from going bad, you will not keep the bearing set up trouble free. You have some other problem. The bearing set up is only to reduce frictional losses, not to fix side load problems.

if you go this way, make sure you install a hardened yoke
