count number of bolts in the tailshaft housing, if its 4 it is a 700r, 5 or more it is a 4l60.

the trans is a 4l60E.

there should be an electrical connector on the passenger side above the pan rail . Connector is about 1.25 in diameter.



The 4L60 and 700r4 are the same trans...GM renamed the 700r4 trans to a 4L60

that bolt count for the tail housing would be incorrect method to ID a trans.

I just found an article on them and it says that beginning in 93 the TH700 became a 4L60 with the advent of OBDII.Consequently this newer model would be electronic governed,right? If so,could I change the valve body of a 4l back to TH700 type?

that article would be incorrect too.

in 1993 the 4L60E was introduced into many of the GM rear wheel drive vehicles... primarily pickup trucks.... the corvettes and F body body cars (Camaro) had a non electronic controlled / shifted 4L60 trans with a round 5 pin connector on the drivers side of the trans case

the 4L60E case is completely different in the valve body area... it can NOT be changed to an early v-body from a non electronic 4L60 / 700r4 trans

OK Crosley.The article is on a Car Craft of Nov/07.So by what you explained there were some 4L60s with non-electronic management? Interesting.Governor or not? I will have to check this electrical plug.The idea is to swap into an early car.

Thanks Paulo

there is confusion here.

a 4L60 is a renamed 700r4 trans. Non electronic controlled.... although the converter clutch is usually applied by the on board computer.

A 4L60E is an electronic controlled / shifted trans. Total different case design in the v-body area. There is NO governor passages for mechanical up & down shifts.... period

A car magazine article?? It has been my experience that these folks are often uninformed , lost , have little knowledge of item they write about.

FYI:



A photo of a 4L60E v-body (left) next to a 700r4/4L60 v-body(right)... you can see that they are not swappable .

OK Crosley.Your expertise is super! Indeed many articles published on magazines and books have their problems.We should read them but never take them to the bank.
