a-hunting i will go

okay, time to venture into the world of automatic trans. my local used parts yard is having a half price sale this weekend. i was thinking about going for a chevy automatic overdrive. i have several questions.

1. what is the difference between 700R4, 4L60 and 4L60E? is there a difference?

2. is there anything i should watch out for good or bad while i hunt for the perfect one?

3. are they somewhat easy to rebuild? an engine is relatively easy for me..

4. is it better for a transmission shop to rebuild my find?

i have installed several in the past and have learned the steps. i will be putting this in a 64 pickup. i have read in this site about good books to buy and will probably get them whether or not i do the rebuild.
now that i have said all that, what are your opinions of rebuilds from the local auto parts store? good deal or someone elses problems?
thanks for any info.

They are essentially the same transmission, just updated versions and version number designations. 700R4 had 2 versions, but basically go for anything in an 1988 or later.
The 700R4 came first, then was updated in 1985, then in 1993 it was given a more technical name designation 4L60 (4-speed Longitudinally mounted 60 series transmission), and the E was added to it later when it became electronically operated.
