    Personally, weekends right now are tough with club stuff, meetings, association stuff, etc.

    I might be able to squeeze a week day in, unless I find a job.

    But don't go by my schedule.

    the hardest part of the install will be installing mega valve and the oversize low/reverse valve. Once the pin that holds them in is removed they should fall right out. Becarful, there is more then just the valves that fall out. If you have the tranny out then everything you are installing will be somewhat easier. I rebuilt my 700r4 using GM Automatic Transmission Overhaul book by Haynes. Very good book. Easy to understand. The servos can be a little stubborn. I used a flat head screwdriver to pry the ring that holds the servo cover on and used a pair of channel locks to rotate the cover off then just tapped the cover back on with a rubber mallet. Not all that hard. If you can swap a rear then tranny work is easy.
