Will the TH700R4 from an '88 3/4T 4x4 fin into an '85 Suburban
My "'Burban originally had a 700 and I swapped in a TH350 using an
It was a desperation move! I aint complaining, it works AWESOME!
The thing is, the friend of mine that just bought the truck doesn't want
the 700 and I need one with 4.10 gears.
All he will be using the truck for is to tow
his skid loader and push snow. So I offered to swap him straight up
trans for trans. BUT, only if they will swap straight up...
Any help on this?
if there will be ANYTHING more than R&R, I aint gonna do it! I know I
will need a lock-up kit if I wanna use that feature(I took the few
electronic items out of my 'Burban)!
as long as all you did was change out the
tranny using the th350 conversion....the only
things you need to worry about is the following.
Bell housing bolt pattern, conditional upon
each trucks engine type.
Throttle valve cable must be reinstalled.
Lockup must be hooked up to keep the
unit from overworking.
I would suggest you consider this trade out
very carefully before you do it. The price
difference between rebuilding a TH350 and
a 700R4 is several hundred bucks, as much
as 6-8 hundred dollars difference, depending
on who you ask.
as long as you can still hook up the tv cable
to your carb linkage, you wire in the lock-up,
and the engine sizes for the bolt pattern are
the same.......you will be okay with everything
