I would look in other threAds on here you might find them helpfully because that's what I did when I was trying to find out sone info about my turbo 350 but I know there are rebuild kits out there and what's it going into and what is it used for I Also know kegs and summit have some for like 1500 or something which is not bad when you look at all the time and how
Much parts are if you have the money

TH350 Rebuild

Crosely he is the transmission goo-roo on here and has a nice piece on rebuilding the th350. If it is moderate to stock rebuild you don't need to waste money on an expensive summit brand kit. I get mine through APT and my local Part Plus supply sells them for 80.00 and it is complete to include a filter and modulator. Even Autozone or Checker has master kits you can get for about 100.00 that will do you just fine and have everything you will need. The th350 build spec list of instructions that Crosely has posted, just follow it to a T, and you should have no trouble getting it together and working. Just make sure you take it one step at a time and don't mix anything up, bolts etc. Just label it and keep everything as one unit until you rebuild it and then set it off to the side as a rebuild unit.

turns out its a 700r4. any tricks on how to pull it out? I've been having a hell of a time
trying to wiggle it out. the Guy my dad bought the truck from threw a built 350 in it
when the v6 in it went out.

it wont go into any gear. that's why I'm pulling it. what's your opinion on it crosely?

and I read some more stuff bout rebuilds. kinda scared to tear her down now Haha

thanks guys.

If your doing it cheap and yourself a th350 is better to start with, that is rebuilding your first transmission. You can find cores cheap around if you look. If its 2wd you can get a long th350 9 inch tailhousing and it will bolt in, if it 4wd you will need a spacer adapter and a longer output shaft. If you are going to try and rebuild the 700r4 there are again some nice cheap kits out there. You can go with a commercial 3-4 clutch pack, a shift correction kit, beast sun shell, and a .500 boost valve and that should take you pretty far. Lots of you-tube videos for 700r4 and 4l60E's. And of course get a book, Chilton's has a GM transmission book that you can get at autozone for $30.00. This book covers the th350 and th400, 700r4, and 200r4. And it also covers front wheel drive GM transmissions
