    well the tranny is out, and finally inspected. Turns out the 2-4 band was totally wiped out, there was metal on metal on the reverse drum. Noticed that whomever did the rebuild before this one for some reason left the 4th accumulator out! :doah:Not to mention the person who did this didnt even block the feed hole!:eek1: Also found the 1-2 accumulator was toast!

    All in all it should be ready tonight for pickup and that will let me put it all back together this weekend! Anyway, here are some pictures my guy has been sending me of the tear down and cleanup he has been doing all morning...just thought I would share

    Also just incase you guys didnt know, its a 700R4 out of an 88 k5 Blazer.

    Well I'm not a pro by any means, but AllDataPro is a good resource to go by, one that I will be using over the next week to figure out what went out in mine and also to overhaul it. I guess I've still got my work cut out for me.

    transmissions arent that bad as long as you take photos and have the proper tools.

    Well one of the guys at the shop I work at will help me during the assembly, he also has a couple cheap upgrades for it. So, I'm really not that worried about it. But, I'm starting at 7:30 tomorrow morning pulling the trans and then over the course of next week I will be tearing it down and rebuilding it.

    Actually, with stuff piled up that like, it really hides just how many individual parts are in there. I laid every piece out separately and filled two sets of shelves.

    Looking in the manual, the main drive path has 106 pieces. The servo is 26 pieces. The valve body has about 70 pieces in it. There are at least 44 parts to the pump. Then there are the accumulators (each about a dozen pieces), the shift and TV linkages, the governor, checkballs, wiring harneness, switches and solenoid, etc.

    And every piece has to be in the right place.
