Is there different TH700R4?

I have been looking for a 700r4 and i have run into a problem. Is there different ones? Some i have seen for sale have been behind s-10 pickups with V-6 engines. Some are advertised with a small bell housing. I am needing one to go behind a 406 sbc. any advise?

700s have several different bells.

1) S10 type for small V6s and 4 cylinders
2) Chevy type for larger V6s and V8s with plastic/tin dust cover
3) Chevy type for larger V6s and V8s with aluminum dust cover

The difference is the 60 or 90 bell housing bolt pattern, the 90 V6 trannies are a little different than V8 trannies inside, (less clutches), but that can be changed during the rebuild process if desired.

Yes, as described in above posts^^^.
60*deg = 2.8,3.1,3.4,3.8 V6
90*deg = 4.3 V6 same as SBC/BBC.

87 to 03 is actually a 4L60, prior versions were the 700R4. They are commonly all lumped together as 700R4s though. Earlier versions had a 27 spline input and a 7 vane pump, 4L60s had a 30 spline input and a 10 vane pump.

And to think all most every one said hotrodders used 350's cause they were cheap and every thing was interchangeable not like the 302 FORD I am using .three different bell housings oh don't all you chevy boys jump on me now cause i'm just pulling your chain a little yea the last three rods I built had 350's one with a 350 tranny the orthers 700r4 . The bell housings were on the things when I got them so I did learn some thing today.
