    I'm looking for a factory throttle valve for a 700R4, it looks like this one:
    http://www.bowtieoverdrives.com/hot/

    I tried getting a new one at the dealer but they don't sell the part seperate, I would have to buy the entire valve body for $400.00 (I can get a a whole tranny for that!).

    Does anyone have a junk 700 that still has the stock throttle valve? My tranny has an aftermarket one, similar to Bowtie Overdrives, that was installed by the PO. I've decided I don't like it and it hurts fuel economy.

    Thanks!

    Go to a local tranny shop and you should be able to get one out of a used core dirt cheap :thumb:

    Thanks guys! Didn't really think of that.

    used parts is good parts

    I'd say a tranny shop too!--Or maybe a local repair shop or the scrapyard will have a few 700R4's in the scrap pile--I know I could get a whole junk tranny for parts without too much searching in my area--in fact,I scrapped a few of them myself in the past few weeks-
    -One 700R4 my friend replaced at his shop,along with a NP208 case was still good--we think the customers wife knocked the transfer case into neutral accidently,and the truck naturally wouldn't move--the husband/owner insisted on putting a rebuilt tranny and used transfer case in,so he installed it,but told him the tranny probably wasnt the problem--the guy didnt care,he said he tows his boat and plows with the truck,so he wanted a new drivetrain--must be nice to be rich,and throw good stuff away--I sold the pair for 150 bucks as rebulildable cores,even though it probably could have been used as it was..:crazy:
