Sonnax makes TV Plunger/Sleeve kits and TVs. Local Trans Shop can get them.
Plunger/Sleeve >>
3 sizes >>

If the TV is sticking/binding.
Oversize TV >>
TV Reamer >>
May be cheaper to let a Trans Shop do it.

TransGo SK700 Jr kit fixes/corrects alot of problems with the 700R4/4L60 Trans. >>

would it be a bad idea to go with a full manual valve body?

SSedan64 01-11-2012 09:13 PM

Many of the Full Manual VBodies use a fixed Max Line pressure that can be hard on the Pump.
What are you using the Truck for, Strip, Street/Strip?

every day driver for now but id like hard shifts.tell i can get me something better on gas

You could add a Shift kit for firmer shifts and manual control.

on my truck the shifter read (p) (r) (n) (over drive) (d) (2) (1) if i shifted from 1 to 4 would i shift 1 2 d over drive?and how much would that kit cost?thanks

The other 2 Kits are available at Trans Supply Shops.
Manually shifting with a Column Shifter can be difficult, easier to mishift.

just be careful with the 700 2-3 kit as it will allow any gear at any speed (yes that means if youre doing 100 mph and go for low gear, it WILL go into low gear). so, a bit of precaution should be excersized with that kit...

84chevyc10 01-12-2012 09:31 PM

lol yes i was thinking about that will that kit make it shift hard?

700r4 throttle valve spring
i have a 1984 chevy c10 with a 700r4 and the throttle valve is getting stuck even tho it had the after market spring in it that they say will keep it from getting stuck what should i do?should i take the spring out or what? :confused:

It has 3 levels of shift feel & 2 shift options, it can be setup to shift how you want. Competition, Off road And Pro-street.
I recommend the Auto/Manual combo shift option or Gear Command with automatic upshifts.

i was looking around and found a TRANSGO JR shift kit and it said that it fixs the sticking tv valve and other stuff is this kit any good?

SSedan64 01-13-2012 03:33 AM

Yes, i mentioned it in my 1st Post above.
I noticed in you have another Post about the TV Valve. If you're still having that problem you may need to take the ValveBody & have the TV bore reamed & new/larger TV installed to correct the problem, mentioned above also. If the Bore is badly worn/grooved causing the Valve to bind/stick that's the only thing that will fix it. Could possibly find a cheap Rebuilt/Remanned Valvebody if the Trans has lots of miles on it. There's an old Thread on here with Info about a guy that sold them, 700R4/4L60/4L60E Vbodies.
