    I just got a used 700r4 from someone on here, and i cant seem to get my old tc in this tranny? I can tell when its all way in, it is at the point where it looks like it is in but it still has to go one more knoch. Are there different splined tc for 700r4? I spent over a hour trying to get this one in and i cant get it!!!

    update, ok after looking at the tc there are 3 places where one spline is missing, if that makes sence, so im guess then that my tc is an older one with only 27 splines right?

    82 83 and early 84 700r4 are 27 spline input, the late 84 and on are 30 spline.

    are you sure its a 700r4 converter?
    is it in all the way and you think its not?
    the bolt pads should sit behind the face of the bellhousing about 1" or so.

    first off what happened to the old tranny? second if it burnt up or blew up then that is bad. convertors are the big colecter of system crap. if you put in a used one you stand a big chance of running all that stuff in a good tranny and trashing it. also dont forget to flush the cooler lines and cooler.


    just some words of advice. dont take this the wrong way. seen it happen and dont want it to happen to you.
