So much for my good core

Picked up my 700 core today and got it un-loaded and pulled the pan. All the vb bolts fell out along with most of the linkage and who knows what else. Seems someone needed some parts from it and I don't know whats missing. Called the shop that sold it to me and he said to bring it back and he'd get me another one. Goody! This is not a good start.

Well, i'm back from the trans shop and all seems to be ok now. He pulled down another trans and pulled the pan while I was there. It was complete but had suffered some severe damage. There were wave spring parts from the sprag everywhere and what he determined as planet parts mixed in too. He asked if I wanted that one? I said "well,,,,,,,uh,,,,,,,not really"! LOL So he pulled another off the shelf. Pulled the pan and this one was very clean and totally complete. The whole trans is very clean which i'm hoping will mean that there won't be much damage inside. Learned a very valuable lesson, PULL THE PAN AND TAKE A LOOK INSIDE!! All I need now is some work so I can afford to build it.

Hi Vince.

I knew when I got it that the trans was a later model but didn't check it till I got home. I've been doing a lot of reading and studying but still find confusing/conflicting info on decoding the numbers and letters stamped on the rear side of the pass pan rail. My stamping is 0CHM198B. One site says the first "0" is the year, so it would be a '90. Another site says the first number AFTER the letters is the year, so mine could be a '91.



From all the reading and studying and questions the two biggest things for a good builder are the big "arch" casting that goes over the cooler lines and a small logo on the drivers side of the case, towards the center. It looks like an "H" with partial circles around it. This logo was used on the transmissions that have the "aux. valve body", which is more desireable. The only better one has to do with just the case, which has a giant "K" cast into the top pass side of the bellhousing. It was used on the 4x4 trucks and blazers and is supposedly stronger and also accepts the 6 bolt cast aluminum converter cover.



On mine, it looks like someone may have recently changed the pump because of the front pump seal retaining clip that is on it. From what i've read, the clip was used to help keep the seal from coming out and dumping fluid. Maybe Crosley or Airworld can add some more on the clip.



All in all, this "looks" like a good core. I'm hoping to post progress photos as I go along for anyone thats interested. I have access to the necessary speciality tools and plan on building a few too. Hope this helps! LOL

I should suggest you measure your aluminum clutch drum depth before the Z pak purchase.

Z pak only fits late style drum from 1988 - up

I think i'm in good shape, mine is a '90 or '91, depending on how I read the pan rail numbers.

Picked up a check tonight on an entertainment center to build so hopefully i'll be buying some parts soon. Thanks for the help and replies, I appreciate them.
