    Besides a good rebuild kit, shift kit and converter, I would recommend a good sprag and band. It sounds like you have everything else covered. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Sprag

    Band

    A manual valve body basically makes your Auto Tranny not automatic. Just like the name implies, you will have to manually shift the tranny. Some manual valvebodies are reverse pattern....meaning rather than P-R-N-3-2-1, you have P-R-N-1-2-3.

    I have never seen someone break the planitary gears in an auto tranny. There are much weaker components in there that will fail first. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
