700R4 out of an 84 K5 .... first rebuild

Hope this hasn’t been covered in another post; I searched a few key words and didn’t come up with anything.
First off I have been reading the forums for a while. The information and help from them is what convinced me to dig into my first auto Trans rebuild. I have been a heavy equipment mechanic for 15 or so years which I have found helps me very little with this project.


I have a 700R4 out of an 84 K5. Typical problem, TV cable unhooked burn some stuff up.
Only until after I removed the pump and Band did I purchase myself the Haynes manual.
Also I’m not removing anything from the planet back or the valve body. Guess you could call it a patch job. My main question is about the “Forward clutch waved plate” Currently what came out of the Trans went (Forward clutch apply plate, Wave plate then a Fiber plate). I found this difference compared to the manual while reassembling The Input housing. Should I reassemble the way it came apart OR go buy the missing steel plate?

Is there a step by step on air checking the clutches, some of the other post I have read have me scared about the piston seals I have replaced and if I have pinched them or not.

Thanks in advance for any help I hope the information I have given is enough.

You have an early version of the 700r4 - 4L60 trans.

the book may be addressing the assembly of the later design trans, which is what it sounds like.

Early version had the friction against the waved plate.. later design used another plate against the wavey plate.

howdy there,

just an FYI:

the very early 700r4 was '82-mid '84

the second early but somewhat updated/improved version was mid '84 to '86

'87-up are the good/better ones



good luck!

Well.... It shifted the same way it did beofre it stopped shiffting when i first test drove it .. went about a block stopped and adjusted the TV cable . I did this a few times and at one point when it shifted into second it sounded real bad( almost like something had come apart). still only about a block from the house i limped it back home and adjusted the cable again and double checked under the truck to see. It is not making the noise in second but i think it takes too long to shift at slow speeds. and at normal speed take off feels like it still take too long ( not as long as slow speed) and it shifts hard.....


Sorry if this isnt enough info but iam frustrated and hoping this Beer will fix it...

BTW it has 27 teeth so iam guessing its the "first" early model

Sounds like the TV cable is still ajusted too short but I will defer to Crosley on that and the internal trans issues that you likely still have.
