Thanks Richard
What parts failed on your trans? 4L70 trans specs are not massive difference in basic parts of the 4L60 series trans.

5 pinion planets in 4l65 & 70E trans. Servo upgrade (small change), heat treating of input shaft, one extra 3-4 friction.

Changes and up grades on the 4L60 are simple and common.

Unless you broke a shaft or the planets broke apart, a proper rebuild is all that is needed along with common upgrades folks do
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
