From what I gathered from reading the text of the manual, (without having the trans to look at), there are a snap rings and planetary gearsets and springloaded clutch packs in the TC...almost like half of the stuff that resides inside a normal transmission is in the Buick TC...

If you are close to Gilroy, you are welcome to come borrow this book.



Later, mikey
