    okay folks, its time for steves Newbie questions!!
    Okay I have 2 th-400's on my floor in my shop right now. Both are either apart, or almost apart. Since I can see all the parts, I want to learn what all the parts do, and how they work in relation to shifting, etc. Instead of getting confused, and trying to ask a bunch of dumb questions, can someone point me to a site, or a book that will tell me what each part is, and what order all the parts go together, and how they work together... and just a bunch of general information i should know.

    Thanks!

    good book to learn how it works, how to rebuild it, and how to modify it

    I recommend that as well. I have the Th350 version of that and I can tell you, it has more info than you can digest without a great deal of study and some "just dig in" time... Everything is there including theory of automatic operation, parts interchange and availability, relative comparison (this is better than that), removal, rebuild, assembly, evaluation, trouble shooting. Also lots of detailed descriptions on special tools, setting/checking critical dimensions and wear areas, you name it…
