    :haha: Those two words shouldn't be used together in the same sentence when trying to build a 700R4 tranny.

    On a serious note though, i had my 700R4 rebuilt recently and i just installed it and i'm having a few issues that are going to get fixed this week but in the mean time i read everything there is to read on Bowtie overdrives website about the TV cable and valve so i'm ready to do some testing and repairs of my own once my buddy gets things working as they should.

    if its the original tranny, i would not rebuild it, it will cost alot just to get it to what a 87-92 is. you should be able to get a rebuildable 87-92 4wd 700r4 for cheap.

    Yea, thats where I was going, the rebuilders (those that want to stay in bizz) won't touch the early ones. It appears that when the manuf. started trying to increase mileage, saving weight was high on the target list. Tranny front pump, there must ?7 lbs. right there!(TH350 & TH400 iron pump). And Aluminum is very thermally efficient, pump is almost a foot in diameter. Care for a potato chip? So, if a 700 has sunburn, its $$ painful. :( Thats why you will always hear, "700? you need a cooler and a gauge."

    if you mean i must have a set up already to go, that's not quite the case. i'll have to wait till the end of july, but the deal is so good it's worth the wait. :D
