    Even though I cant see the pic the only wires i know of on a 700-R4 is the ones that go to the distributor for the converter lock up

    All the wires contriol is the Torque converter lockup. I dont know where they go but you drive it without them. But if you spend a lot of time on the highway you might want to get it figured out.

    Well depends on the gearing. What gears do you have. I had 3.73s in mine with a 700 and it didn't want to go into overdrive then i put 4.56s in and it was perfect then i got tired of auto and put a sm465/205 combo back in and i am back with 3.73s and i love it. But i drove mine without lockup for about 3 years and didn't have any problems.

    not sure on gearing. plan on doing a 3/4 ton swap in the future. i bought it cheap drove it around town and played in it for the most part. it sat for awhile. just started fixing it. the old tub was shot. thought it was bad but didnt realize how bad it was. so i swapped tubs. its a 1983 k5 how many differnt gear ratios come in k5s? stock that is? i dont know to much about the newer trucks ive always been a fan of the 60s 70s stuff ive got a 63 C-10 that im restoring. but i always love the k5s so i found one cheap and so I bought it.
