I have never been able to use or set up Outlook Express on this computer (which is where it sent me when I clicked on the link you gave me) so I sent you a PM with my address. It is the first time i've done that so if you don't get it let me know.

As I read the last few posts, I couldn't help but think - Lets get back to me -
I took the input clutches out today and found that my 3-4 clutches were burnt up. I showed the guy at my local tranny shop and we determined that I had used the wrong gaskets from th e kit i got (the one I used is for a tranny with a auxillary valve body, and upon closer inspection the gasket is covering one of the holes).
He also had me check my valves in the pump body (the big one especially). THey were OK.

My TV cable was adjusted properly the whole time.
Any other possible reasons the 3-4 clutches would have burned. I assume it was the covered whole in the plate, but if there is anything else I should check, I would apprciate the input before I stick the thing back together.

Thanks, Mark

There several reasons the 3-4 clutches burned up. From your posts, it sounds like you replaced parts in the transmission but did not address the cause of the problem.

Have you checked the sealing rings on the input shaft? Wear grooves can be in the stator support where the rings seal?

Did the pump have wear patterns in it? Any grooves worn into the flat surfaces?

You may have not checked the valve body TV valve assembly for wear or if the inner valve was sticky? If the TV system is not operating properly the main line pressure does not increase properly. This can cause the trans to slip.

I read where you did not replace the case bushing. Did you replace any of the bushings? The 700r4 / 4L60 series of transmissions can wear out the bushings and these should be replaced during a proper rebuild.

Do you check the boost valves in the pump for wear? I read where you checked the pump after a chat with the local trans shop. Where any of the bushings in the pump replaced? Sometimes a local trans shop will R&R bushings for a DIY for a reasonable fee.

Hey Crosely: I didn't see your post until after I had the tranny back together. (it was hidden amonst the other posts)

When I checked the TV valve, all I did was push it in to see if it came back out on it's own, it did.

ANyway, it wasn't until saturday afternoon that i realised that i did not have any of that cooling system flush. I will let you know what happens.

Thanks, Mark

Well, it's back in and doing everything it's supposed to. And I only had to do it twice. Thanks for the help.
