700R4 Rebuild

I've got a 700R4 out of a 92 chev full sized van that overheated from lack of fluid and now won't shift into high even after a fluid flush and new filter. Shutters going into 2nd also. I have 40 years of mechanical experience rebuilding just about everything including certified aircraft piston engines but I've never attempted to rebuild an automatic transmission. The question is, given that the transmission got hot what should be replaced during the rebuild and where are reputable places to buy parts?

More than likely the clutches are burn and maybe some seals are broken or just hard and not sealing any longer.

Just do a Google search on 700R4, you will come up with more info that you will care to read.

I bought an instructioanal DVD and a rebuild kit and did it myself. I watched the DVD a couple of times first to see how its done & to see if I had all the parts. It worked so far as for checking it as I went along, The tolerances were good etc... I have yet to try it though. Its going in my 66 Chevy truck and its far from done yet. If you have the mechanical experience then why don't ya give it a shot. Old dogs can learn new tricks!!! I had to fabricate a couple of tools for the overhaul but they are basic to make. Its on page 6 of my project journal if ya want to take a look. Good luck and have a good one!!!
