look at the trans case pan rail area above the pan... passenger side at rear of pan.

Numbers stamped on aluminum case flat spot , just above the pan ... unless some person ground them off.

What car? Why the G-Force cross member?

I tried finding a set of numbers on the rear passenger side of the trans Crosley; but there are none there. There is a big white tag on the top of the bellhousing but is unreadable. Are their any other places on the trans that might have an ID number on it. Also the car its going into is an 86 Oldsmobile Cutlass.

sorry for digging this up but its almost winter time and time to start working on rebuilding the trans. The trans is going behind a 355 that is gonna be sitting at around 400hp and 400ft/lb at the crank. What modifications should i make to the tranny while i have it all apart so it will last? Some people have suggested "The Beast" sun shell. The parts in the first post are the ones i plan on using now unless people have better ideas. Its going into an 86 cutlass supreme with 3.73s and will be used for street and strip probably going to the track every week or two.

The B&M kit Pic shows a 2004R filter? Just a bad Pic. The TCI kit is a Pic of a TH400 rebuild Kit?? another screwup.
B&M shift kits are pretty poor, TCI's are better.
Check some of these sites
The HP Super kit with Carbon band here>>http://www.makcotransmissionparts.com/4L60-700R4.html
http://www.makcotransmissionparts.com/A74624A.html
http://www.makcotransmissionparts.com/T74165HP.html
http://www.makcotransmissionparts.com/T74171.html

http://www.transmissionpartsusa.com/...arts_s/641.htm

Very complete kits here also, Tell them what you're building and ask whats needed.http://www.700r4l60e.com/store/home.php
May be able to get a kit with all parts included cheaper. Just have to check around.

i kinda want to tear into it myself and learn how to do it. I read about a couple different tools that can be made at home to make the job easier. I just need to know what internal parts need to be replaced to hold 450hp. I am doing clutches , steels and the usual stuff the gets replaced in a rebuild like seals, gaskets and what not.

larrym, i looked at that site and saw a couple rebuild kits i might be interested in. I noticed a difference between the two high performance overhaul kit that i think would be best for me, a( #7RK/HPA) and b( #7RK/HPB) This was the difference: Updated 29 element input sprag, premium lo roller clutch,and " THE BEAST" extreme duty sun shell. Is kit b worth the extra $120?

I would give Chris a call he helped me quite abit when i rebuilt my 200R4.
He has a manual for the 200R4 I was tempted to buy but ended up with a hayne's manual that I used.

The only thing I struggled with was the pump they need to be machined to ensure the hardened stator support is in straight, the clearances on the rotor vanes is important also.

Definately worth the extra $$$ and mandatory IMO. Wouldn't even waste my time rebuilding it without these parts. Replace every bushing and thrust washer also.

both kits say they will hold 750ft/lb. So would the more expensive kit just be more assurance that all the pieces stay inside the case?

I wouldn't attempt 750ft/lbs without at least the #7RK/HPD Kit. Most don't recommend the 700R4 for over 500ft/lbs
