    Friend of friend sort of deal.

    700R4 and NP208, bolted together, with adapter.
    Says $350.
    Says 700 was rebuilt 3500 miles ago.
    Says he hasn't dug through that stuff in a bit, and isn't sure if the torque converter is there.

    I haven't seen anything yet, so far it's all just talk, over the phone.

    The friend that is the go-between says he has a rear slip-yoke shaft from an '87 that I can have if I do the swap.

    When I do look at the stuff, what should I look for to verify the freshness of the tranny?
    Other than being clean, painted, and the front seal looking good, I wouldn't know where to begin.

    My existing TH350-factory adaptor-NP203(with Mile-Marker part time kit just installed) would be coming out.

    I think the new stuff is a good buy if it really turns out to be what he says, especially if there's a converter.

    So my questions are:
    Is it a good price?
    How do I tell what's up with the prospective drivetrain?
    What can I expect to get for my existing drivetrain?(no probs to date)

    Thanks,
    Fletch

    Sounds like a good price if everything is in good condition. Check the fluid to see if it looks new, it shouldnt look brand new(like it was just changed), but should still have a good red color to it. If it doesnt, it probably has more than 3500 miles on it or something is wrong.
