another 700-r4 question

is it true that 700-r4's with front pump and shaft #'s ending in "732" are bad builders? i was told they were not worth rebuilding,why would that be? if i were to rebuild it ,i would replace everything anyway. just curious,and to save time and trouble. if there is something,anything odd about this paticular tranny w/ the aforementioned pump/shaft #'s i would like to know,thanks

trans

if your going to use the trans for everyday type street use , i don't see a problem with this trans. i used a 82 700R4 in my 66 nova for six years without any problems. most people that say it isn't any good is because there's failed while racing or read about it failing during racing. maybe some else has some input on this...

700 r4

as long as you get a 700 before 82 it is just fine because they dont have the electronic lockup, they are actually great transmissions after they have been rebuilt, better than factory as long as you dont get your kit from gm

700

732 casting is 87 up pump, and no matter what all 700's can be a fine tranny they all have trouble with the 3-4 clutch plates as do 4l60 e.

'86-91 is the most desired 700 to build, atleast to most of the pros on here that recommended it to me. It will already have some of the better upgraded parts that failed on the earlier ones.

700

I've been building them since they came out in 81,and they are the same from then to 2004. they all fail thank god.....I own my shop and my family has been doing transmission repair since the early 60's. I've read all the post about which year is best and its a matter of what you know and want to believe.

what do you guys think about 200-r4's,regarding strength,and build-ability for performance? i figured since they put them in the grand national,(thats not the only reason,of course)they could be a good choice.

I hope you have plenty of cash for a trial & error method with the 700/4L60 trans .

RE: 200-4r , they need many upgrades to handle serious power.
