Rebuild kit for 700r4

I bought a rebuild kit from Advance auto parts for 130 bucks and it seems to have every thing. It's a Proking rebuild kit. It says it was made in Canada I keep hearing that made in china junk is a waste of money and time. Any one one have any suggestions as far as rebuild kits. I've never rebuilt a 700r4 so I don't know which kit I should get or if mine is fine. Any replays or suggestions are appreciated.

700R4 is not a trans to learn on. MANY changes and updates were done to these over the years.

Rebuild kits are packaged by only a couple of places and sold under many different brands, using seals and pieces from several sources.

If I were you I'd take that one back an get a more compleat kit. I rebuilt mine using a kit I got from 700r4l60e. It was around 500.00. Plus if you call them they'll make you a kit based on what kind of HP you have & how you drive your car. I have alot of info. such as books an research I found on the web. And a few do's an dont's. I live not to far from you, at Medina lake. PM me if you want some help.

I have a 700-R4 that may need some attention soon. Don't you need a few $pecial tools to work on the transmission?

A few, yes.

Clutch piston spring compressor
Low-reverse spring compressor
Snap ring spreader pliers internal/external
Lip seal tool
Lip seal install cones
Input shaft seal sizer if applicable
Pump puller
Bushing cutter
Bushing drivers

Probably forgot a few.

It's a good start..

Yeah, it didn't seem like a do-it-yourself job unless you have access to the right tools. Transmissions and diffs are the only two parts of the car that I pay someone else to work on and I'll probably continue that practice.

Geezz, they charged $130 for a $30 Kit? I hope the Frictions/Steels were on the other side of that.

Transtec is common brand product. I use TransTec items every day at work.

I would toss the cork pan gasket out, I prefer Farpak gaskets or the brown paper equal to Farpak. They are covered in an adhesive to aid in sealing the pan
