700r4 tranny swap different plugs

hello my son has a 1993 chevy with a 350 motor tranny is 700r4. the tranny went bad and we purchased another 700r4 out of a 92 chevy. the plug in is different and im a mom with not alot of money. will this difference in yr cause a problem? can the plugs just hang and be plugged with protection or is there possible an adaptor to interchange the 2 different plug ins? thanks a bunch. mom trying to get her kids truck fixed

A 1993 Chevy truck has the 4L60e trans in it. There is a connector for electrical on the passenger side of the trans, about 1.25 inches in diameter. The 4L60e trans is electronic controlled shifting and pressures.

The 1992 trans would have a square connector on the driver's side of the trans case with 4 holes in it.

These two transmissions are not interchangeable

So is it? or is it not interchangable? new rebuilt tranny came out of a 92 four wheel drive. I appriciate your help a bunch been sitting here waiting on an answer. I just need to make sure if they can be converted or not and what needs to be done to make the change maybe? Some tell me they used several differnt kinds of trannys in the 93s trucks. I kinda have 2 different answers here and not clear on what to go with. no pun intended just looking for honest help Thanks

diamond, I provided you an honest answer.

As mentioned by joshp with the plug in connector for the 4L60e trans unplugged , the PCM will set trouble codes and turn on the "check engine" lite in the dash.

The onboard computer in the truck looks for feed back from the 4L60e trans. When you install the earlier non electronic trans the system does not operate properly. The truck will run and drive.

Good luck
