    MAN, I got my new TCI Deep aluminum pan for my 700R4 adn the damn thing looks killer and all but the SOB came with metric Allen head bolts to install it. Im a little dis-appointed here. I was ready to install tonight. But Im going to get some 8 point headed grade 3 bolts instead. Just thought I'd share that with you guys. Im venting.

    Will work for beer, parts and tools.

    That sounds great--I want one! But grade 3? Why not grade 5 or 8?

    Yeah i got the same pan on mine. I love the fact that it has a drain plug. And i used the allen screws. They are 6m. But if you get different screws make sure you get ones that are the same length as the allen screws. Our new pans are thicker, the old ones from the original pan will not work. Too short. And you will also have to drop the dust cover or the pan will not sit right. If you don't you will see what i mean. anyway just thought i would let you know. Later LittleJimmy.

    Re: Check this Out!!!

    Im still at a loss here. I'm thinking that the only dust cover for the torque converter that I can think of would be on a manual tranny. And mine is the 700. So the torque converter is up inside the bellhousing and the is nowhere close to the pan.

    The dust shield bolts onto the front of the transmission and covers the bottom side of the torque convertor area. Have to remove it when you pull the tranny to take off the TC bolts. Should be six bolts (3 on each side) and two struts that go from it to the motor mounts. Dont need to really take it off, just loosen the six bolts to make sure the pan sits flush with the case.

    Yep, I figured that one out. I went ahead and took it off to trim the edges to fit with hte new pan. Also had to take the front drive shaft out and had to remove my t-case spacers and jack the damn tranny up as far as it would go and even then the damn pan had to be forced between the hard line that runs under the valve body and the muffler. I now have the pan in, and wiating till tomorrow to finish up.
