Default TH400/TH475

Hey guys,
I've seen some mention of TH475 transmissions, I was planning on sending the TH400 tranny out of my 85 suburban to the shop and was wondering what kind of mods need to be done to get a TH475.

The main difference is that the TH475 has straight cut gears in it, and the TH 400 has helically or angle cut gears. The angle cut ones are quieter , but they are not as strong because they can pry apart under a heavy load. The straight cut ones are really strong and they are used in motorhomes and like C60 trucks.

The TH400 is one of the Best/Strongest Auto tranny's ever built! it should give you many, many, years of dependable service[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img].
It's ONLY drawback is not having an OD[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

If you are having it rebuilt, I strongly suggest having an "RV" shift kit installed and use a "Heavy Duty" Torque Converter. This will make it shift firmer and is actually beneficial to the trans! Also be sure you have a large external tranny cooler!

is the TH700 the one w/ overdrive? is it a durable transmission?

Duct tape is like the force: it has a light side and a dark side, and it holds the universe (and my truck) together.

<font color=purple>TH700 has O/D, but isn't as durable at TH400. The 4L80E is an O/D tranny that is based on the TH400 & is more durable than the TH700/4L60E.</font color=purple>

I've heard it's not very strong, but thats just rumor. I might have a th-700 for sale when I scrap the old 84
