I'm sorry if i omitted you, but I really don't know any of the guys on here personally including you. I only mentioned Crosley and Jake because I know they have been at it for a long time and have gave good information and help to many people.

It's just the guy was getting so many different suggestions on how to stack up the clutches, I could tell he was getting confused.

nice truck you have there.... in 2002 I sold a 1971 Chev 1/2 ton short bed I owned for 14 yrs. Still miss that truck.

As has been pointed out here there are multiple ways to set up a transmission.


I always tell folks you can ask the same question of 5 transmission builders and receive 7 or 9 answers.

Ahh! a man of taste, they're beautiful Trucks for sure, & the 67-72's are growing in popularity & price...so maybe it's time for another

Definitely my favorite years as well.
I have a 70-CST10 w/SBC400/TH400 & 71-Cheyenne w/SBC350/TH350 both LWB.
The 71 is getting a TH2004R soon.
I wish I had a SWB but, they cost double.

Well it's in and running like a top, also not a leak or drip from anywhere which I'm especially pleased about, it feels very smooth to drive, but it runs like a raped ape, my Trucks been off the road for about 5 mths in total as I was into a top end redo at the same time as doing the 400....and man did I forget how this thing likes to move.
Did a little vid for my YT channel but they muted the sound, so stuck it on PB it's just a rough guide for people like me who want to tackle this job but have never seen the inside of a 400, and give them some idea of the internal workings and how they go together...got carried away with the rebuild and forgot to document a couple of things like Check Ball's etc, but what the heck if you get as far as a tear down you'll soon find out what and where they are.

I'm now in the market for a new pump, I have the dreaded whining noise, no idea why it should start making this noise after a few days of silent driving when everything was good after the install, I'm not convinced that the type of filter used could cause this noise...fibre or brass screen, it always had the newer fiber style filter and never caused any probs over the years I have owned it & after a clean rebuild there is less reason it should start to now.
The truck now feels like it's slipping when in drive, also my yard has a slight slope and when I drop it in reverse it rolls forward before it engages...never did that before so that maybe a lack of fluid getting to the clutches because the pump is failing...I think

Does anyone know why the big difference in price of these two pumps?

Thanks in advance.

I agree the Filter isn't causing the problem unless it's loose. Probably a clearance issue.

I'd say one of those Pumps is way over priced.

A few more:

If the filter is clogging up , the pump will whine.

If the filter is clogged up this quickly, that indicates a problem.

i would suggest a pan drop and filter inspection before parts are purchased. May be something simple.

Have you checked the pressure since the reverse gear seems weak?

Thanks for those links SSedan they have prevented me from making a costly mistake and buying the more expensive one based on "you get what you pay for" train of thought. Well I dropped the pan and I was amazed to find a bunch of crap sitting in the filter, so Crosley was right...I have replaced the filter and there was no whine from the get go, plus reverse gear engaged right away so it was definitely fluid starvation causing all the problems.
My next concern is finding out what that crispy type crap is from, it's not metal but is brittle & feels like plastic, I've checked the Governor gear it was fine so short of pulling the box and dismantling I have no idea on the upside she is driving & working faultlessly since changing the filter & fluid...time will tell.
