    quotes the 1999 GM Performance Parts Catalog that says that the 4L60 deep transmission pan will work on a 700R4. I got the pan and filter. The pan looks like it will work, but the filter neck/seal is too large in diameter for the 700R4. Is there a filter that will work ???

    I got the pan with part number (24215535) with a drain plug. I want to use the deep pan with plug on a 1988 Suburban 4x4 with 700R4 transmission.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you checked out summitracing.com (I think thats it)
    I don't know how deep your oil pan is but they have kits
    with radiated deeper pans and filter and seal could probably get just necked down filter but, make sure you get your depths right 4L60 had a larger diameter than the older 700s
    , I know its in their Catalog could also check out B&Mracing!

    If it ain't intimidating / It ain't a Chevy

    Check your front driveshaft clearance before you commit to putting the deep pan on. May be a little tight.

    I am surprised the filter is different, but call a tranny shop and see if both a 1988 700(it IS a 4l60, GM just didn't call them that yet) and a later, say 1997 4l60e (electronic) filters are different. You could even check a 1992 filter and see if that too is different, as it would not be electronic controlled yet...the 'E" may have inluded other internal differences that may have required a filter redesign... I've never heard of a different 700 filter...the 200-4R uses a similar filter, but the neck diameter is the same. Odd that GM would have changed them.
