1984 700R4 B&M Shift kit question

Hi everyone..

Well I have a question hope someone can help,From the looks of things,people here seem to know alot,So here it goes..

I recently installed a B&M shift kit in my 1984 S-10,700R4,The odd thing was that I had to remove some check balls 2 of them,And re move the 2 larger springs in one of the larger valves,It was a piston type deal,I forget what it was called,But one of the springs was broken any ways,So I was glad to see that it said it should be removed,and spacers put in there places,One of them under the spacer plate,and one on top of the plate..

I removed 4 springs in total replaced one with a blue one that B&M supplied,and removed 2 check balls,and bored 3 holes in the spaccer plate,I was wondering if that was normal,Seems like I took out alot of extra parts.. And how important is it that I adjust the Tv pressure,Will the transmission go out if I dont do that,I have read around here that ,Adjusting the TV pressure may or may not be critical.. Just thought I should have a shift kit,Because I just had it bored 40 over,and put a Lunati cam,in that was twice the lift of the stock cam,So that ought to be alot of cam in that little bitty engine..

I know nothing about transmissions,except for removal and installing them,Nothing about the internal workings,Hope someone can answer this for me,

Thanks a bunch

Russell

Cool

First; the term " shift kit " is trade marked by TransGo. B&M sells shift imporover kits.

Next , yes most kits have you change or remove items. Removing certain check balls is OK.

The piston / spring deal is an acumilator. These will firm up shifts with stronger springs or the removal of the spring.

Next, the TV cable MUST be adjusted very close to the corect setting or you will damage the 700r4 trany.

from what i learned over time is that when you remove the check balls, it alows harder shifting, the reason it does this is when fluid is applyed to a pasage that the ball is in the ball plugs the passage and the fluid is forced around down another skinny passage, making your clutch packs apply smothly, for a shift that you dont feel,
then when you remove the ball, it takes the big passage and slams the clutch packs on, giving you the hard shifts...the reason you remove 2 of them is ones for your 1-2 shift and the others for your 2-3 shift, you dont want to remove the balls for park-1 or your park- reverse
hope that makes sence.
