700R4 to 4L60E swapped already
i bought a 1998 Chevy Silverado half ton Z71 with a vortec 5.7. I just found out that the transmission in the truck right now is a 700R4. I need to know is what do i need to swap it back to the original 4L60E? Any and all help is appreciated. and i need it in a hurry its sitting in the shops parking lot right now and he will charge storage fees soon.

Its sitting at a trans shop? Is the 700r4 bad? The gearing of the transmissions are the same the difference is in the valve bodies I think. You need to crawl under the truck and find out if the wiring for the original transmission is still there.

Never mind the guy that looked at it was right but it was a electronic 700 so they just needed to bolt it up and connect it. But now i got to replace the intake gaskets. thank you for getting back to me so quickly though.

A 4l60e is an electronic 700r4. Sounds like you need to find a new shop
