904 torqueflight rebuild tutorial ?

I have been looking around the site for a rebuild tutorial on a 904 lockup torqueflight trans simular to the great TH350 tutorial by jakeshoe. Is there one on the site that I have just not found? if there is not one here does anyone have any good links to one ?

Many thanks Mark

Well, this isn't on the lock up but a 904.... http://www.moparmusclemagazine.com/h...ild/index.html
You might get someone that has a manual if you visit some of the mopar specific sites like moparstyle dot com forbbodiesonly dot com forabodiesonly dot com and some others. You can do a search for those and other sites.

904 is really simple you almost cant mess it up if you pull it apart and lay everything out in order its basically a small 727. I like doing these I really like the 518 and the REs

As Im in the Uk I am going to order these parts in the US and have them shipped back to the UK so need to get the oder right.

Thanks

I just looked on my suppliers parts list and all i show is direct frictions .086 and forward frictions .061 I dont see any other options as far as thickness unless you are looking up some kind of special pack that uses thinner frictions to add more clutches. The 904 is really an easy trans to do order yourself an ATSG manual and you shouldnt have any problems. if you do have a problem feel free to ask.

Call Will at 407-522-4417 tell him Robert sent you he is my supplier from Whatever it takes trans parts. replace the sprags and bushings and new band maybe a decent shift kit. the 904 isnt a weak trans in its design as it closley mirrors the 727 just smaller. If i were you I would look at doing a 727 swap if you can find one or maybe even a 518 which is basically a 727 with a OD unit onthe back of it. they can be found at yards pretty cheap. Big ugly MOFOS but they are hella strong. I have had 5 on the bench in the past 2 months they have their issues but its usually a fault in the cooler lines that kils them. the checkvalve gets stuck and cuts lube oil to the OD unit and wipes out the rear of the trans, but i rarley see any probs with the main case.

I agree the 727 Trans would be a better choice but, if you only have the 904 available, you have to use what you have.
Here's a few sites for parts.
