Who makes a good 700r4?
GM . For what kind of app
Bowtie Overdrives. Excellent info on the web site as well.
TCI in mine, very trouble free, nice firm shifts for over a year too. Stay away from Monster transmissions on EBay, totally crap.
thanx i was looking at monster trans, now i know to stay away.
I want to run 35s and tow a fishing boat. I have 3/4 axles in the near future. And a 406sbc
this is the one that I have used for a year or so.
My monster 700r4, the mid level one, failed in 100 miles. On teardown it showed a four gear planetary (supposed to be six) and the gears were all missing the brass washers. It didn't have the billet servo I was told it would have, and the reverse input drum was visibly bowed down, indicating it hadn't been machined flat upon their rebuild of it ( it usually takes a straightedge and a feeler gauge to determine that). It was so bad upon failure that my local trans guy said it wasn't even worth rebuilding. Their converter they supplied was also junk and full of crap.
They refused to refund my money, wanted me to freight it back to them for a replacement. Reasonable enough, but if that's the quality of their work, I don't want another one. It's my DD, and changing transmissions isn't fun for me. I just scked up and bought my TCI truckmaster and haven't looked back.
There's a reason why it's so cheap compared to the other's.
Sucks!!! Mine hasn't been a problem since day one. Either I got a really good one or you got a really, really, realllllllly bad one!!!!
Mine was from Monster transmission on Ebay, not those guy's. My TCI has been flawless for over a year now.
