To run a 700-R4 trans behind a carbureted engine without a computer, at the very least the TV cable must be hooked up to the carburetor and properly adjusted. Not just a simple kickdown cable like your TH350 analogue, the TV cable controls line pressure and shift points.

Do I need a lock up converter?

A lockup torque converter is important in automatic transmissions to reduce slippage. And once slippage is curbed, heat generation is minimal while fuel economy is improved. This and many more have been outlined above to give you an insight into this component and why you may need one.

How do I know if my 700R4 is locked up?

12 volts is applied to a solenoid valve in the transmission when in 4th gear determined by a 4th gear pressure switch in the transmission. You can tell if it is in lock up by watching the tach when you accelerate or decelerate in 4th gear. If it’s not in lock up, the tack will move up or down rapidly.

What is the one advantage to having a lock up torque converter?

Slipping reduces fuel economy and heat can damage the converter and the transmission. The solution is to lock the converter. Lock-up eliminates the slippage, which reduces heat and improves fuel economy.

What can occur when the torque converter clutch does not lock?

There are basically three ways a torque converter lockup clutch can fail: It can stay locked up, stalling the engine when the car is braked to a stop; it can never lock up, which shows up as an increase in fuel consumption and radiator temperature; or it can slip when engaged, allowing engine speed surges at a constant …

The most common of these is the 90 degree V6 and V8 Bellhousing. – This version, as well as the 93-97 4L60E use a 298mm input shaft /torque converter. – The vehicle speed sensor is still on the passenger side of the tail-shaft.

How do you rebuild a 700R4?

You’ll need a transmission overhaul kit that includes all new clutches, steels, seals, and gaskets like the 700R4 Pro-Super rebuild kit we got from TCI Automotive.
