I picked up a solid running 700R4 with the wire harness and the torque converter. And they guy gave me a warranty on the trans to not be defective. Here are the first cleaning pictures. I need to go get some oven cleaner to finish up the rest.

Yeah I think so $200.00 with warranty + the torque converter. And he even swapped out the tail pc and installed the mechanical gear for my cable speedo.

Nice! That really cleaned up well.

You wouldn't have found that at Pomona by any chance? I get down there maybe once a year, but haven't been for a while.

If it were me I think I would have the front and rear seals replaced. It may save you a lot of work later. But that's the kind of luck I have. Otherwise you got a great deal!

Is that a wiring Harness coming from the Drivers Side of the Trans..If so isn't that a 4L60E...just asking as a friend bought what was thought to be a 700R4 but it had the Electricial connector on the Drivers side and ended up being a 4L60E..which the kit to convert to non-electric was about 500 Bucks!!!

Is that pretty easy to do? Something I can do myself?

It is a plug on the side but I’m pretty sure it’s not a 4L60E. I think the plug controls the lockup feature.

Changing seals: The tail piece has an o-ring where it bolts on to the trans and a rear seal where the yoke goes in that you can do ( just be careful not to gouge the sealing area when you remove the old one.). The front I'd leave to a professional. There's also an o-ring in the speedo assembly on the side that if needed could be done after trans. is installed.

Love the 4 speed autos. I've used both the 200-4r and the 700-r4. Both are tremendous.

This thread is about the gears to get the speedo to work correctly. The calculator will tell you what combo to use for tire size and rear gear ratio.

Later,

Mike

Cool thanks for the tips! I'll see what I can do.
