I just picked up a 305 TPI engine and 700R4 transmission out of a 1991 Z28 with 63K miles on it.
I got to hear the engine run in the car before I bought it. The car was a creampuff but the guy picked up an LS1 he wanted to put in the car.
I'm going to put this combination in my '57 Chevy pickup. But, it is probably going to be at least a year before it's in and running.
It's now been about 2 months since I got it and the only thing I've done so far is separate the transmission (1FZM model) from the engine and set it on the floor of my shop.
I will assume the fluid has never been changed in it but I don't know that's the case.
So, my question is what I should do to the transmission now in preparation for storage for at least a year?
Btw, I found it on craigslist and it was exactly what I was looking for to put in the pickup. I think I got a steal on it too. Paid $1000 for the combo including all the accessories and ECU.
