I know this info is somewhere but I have not been able to locate it. I have found some gif. images of the seperator plate and four holes to drill to.110",.078" and.055"
http://www.montecarloss.com/SSThunder/drivetrain.html
but I do not know what else can be done exactly. I know that the 1/2 & 2/3 plunger springs can be stiffer but I don't know which plungers they are on the 700(that's what I can't find, pics!). Does anybody have a pic or real easy directions to allow me to know where they are?

Also there was an aluminium inverted cup beside the Valve Body with three bolts holding it on. It had a purple spring broke in half. Is this the accumulator and if so is there a simple/special bolt trick like I read about the T350's being able to use?(the one where you take a 5/16 bolt and put it behind a plug beside the accumulator?

This trans will be behind a 97 vortec with ported heads and a (supposed) ZZ4 cam. The intake is similar to the Victor Jr or teamG.
I had a th350 and bought a 10" stall :thumbup: then I pulled the pan...lockup style :drunk: any ways now the 700 is on the table b/c the engine will go in an '87 Supra with 4.30 gears out back. Any help is greatly appreciated. As you can tell I don't know much about trannys but would like to learn.
-Thanks

-ps- I would like this trans to break 'em loose hitting drive! A no holds barred but still fit the "stock" class! -Thanks again!

Plunger?

what parts are you calling plungers? Servo? You used the term accumilator and stu pointed those out for you.

You do not want to block off the accumilators. The 700 tranny will break parts in short order from the harsh shifts.

The 2-3 accumilator is part of the 2 - 4 servo on the pass side of the case

Easy with me! I told you I didn't know what's going in a tranny!

The 1-2 accumulator is under the small cover held in with bolts.
Is that the aluminium cover with the three bolts?Can I put a stiffer spring in there?

I don't want a broken trans.
Besides that gif download I made where you drill the 4 holes is there anything else I should do?

And what about that purple spring I found broke under that aluminium cover(cover w/three bolts beside the ValveBody)?

Do you have any pics? That is what I need to understand(my english comp sux). :p
what parts are you calling plungers? Servo?
The shift rods? The ones that have little springs and you change those springs when you put a shift kit in. They slide in the valve body itself.

If I could just find pics of a 700 with the pan and filter off with arrows showing what each piece is I would really really appreciate it.

-Thanks!
-ps- what do you think of my dragster? You right click and save it if you want... or the shift kit plate I put the animated drills on too. You can save that too, if you want(i just started messing with this animation last week...it's cool!)

keep in mind I am not being jerk here......:D

the valve body is called that because it has valves in it that move in valve bores. Not shift rods , not plungers

There are a few books availible that provide you with a great deal of information. A search of the net would provide that too.

Your shift plate deal is something I have seen a few times. The high lighted holes will provide a bit better / firm shifts if that what you want.

A TransGo shift kit works real well in these trannys. Depending on the year of your tranny it may need an extensive kit or a simple one. The TransGo kits come with springs for the accumilator that had a broekn spring.

Is the bore of the accumilator damaged from the broken spring? Is the steel separator plate damaged from the broken spring? They must in good shape to function correctly

The instructions in the TransGo kit provide a great deal of information too.

The TransGo kit for the 700R4 is about $130 and also comes with an installation video. Get it, or take it to someone knows what their doing. Your other option is to wing-it and screw your trans up. Then you can just buy a new one.

I had absolutely zero trans experience and installed a TransGo kit in my 700R4 with very few issues. My only problem was getting a snap ring to seat, but that had nothing to do with the kit or quality of the instructions. Save yourself the headache, get the TransGo kit. Ed www.edgesz28.com

I've put shift kits in Th350s and AODs. I really like to do the home made jobbers personally. All I need to know is which valves are the 1/2 and 2/3 valves. I will put my own springs in.
The plate can be drilled more than the common numbers are I'm sure. There is plenty of material before the gasket comes into play.
My buddie works at a tranny shop and he came by today and brought me a new spring for the accumulator. He does the heavy line and doesn't know much about the insides(that's why I'm asking you guys). I can't find pics of the valve body with labels on MSN,Jeeves,Google or Yahoo or I wouldn't be asking.

Don't worry a lot. If you guys don't tell me Mark will bring a B&M kit from work Monday...I just wanted to start putting it in tomorrow.

So if you don't mind.... Which two valves are the 1/2 & 2/3 and does the stiff accumulator spring go on the trans or VBody side?

We don't need any smart *** remarks from the peanut gallery BOZO.
I myself have been in the transmission industry for 47 years.
Just because you can't find your *** with both hands is no reason to criticize anyone.
I doubt whether you will receive any further assistance.
Other than holding the door open for you as you leave.
What a loser.
