999 repair

My 88YJ 4.3 has a Chrysler 999 auto, and it needs to be rebuilt. It has been leaking AT oil for a year or two,a about a Qt per week, but it has started sliping as it shifts in to 2nd. So I need to find some one to rebuild it, and I would like to know what would be a fair price for the job? I live tn the Tampa area. If any one knows what a fair price should be, please let me know, Thank You, Jim.

Re: 999 repair

Are you sure it is a 999 or maybe a 904? If you have 3 speeds then you have a 904, if you have 3speeds and an over drive then you have the 999. There is a GREAT BIG diff in cost between the 2. I just had my 904 non lock up, for my 87 rebuilt for $375.00, but I carried it in to get the repairs. It would have been around $500.00 if they pulled it. The 999 will be in the nieborhood of $1200.00 to make the repairs, or so I was told by another trans shop when I thought I had a 999. hope this helps.

Re: 999 repair

Hi GP'n, It is only a three speed, no overdrive.
I have been told it was a 999 but they may not know.
In The Chilton Manual it looks like a 999, but if it is the cheaper one to rebuild that would be great.
Thanks for Info Jim.

Re: 999 repair

Im pretty sure the 998, and less common 999 are just 3 speeds, although they might have a lockup converter, they are still small change to rebuild.

$50 for a rebuild kit.$100 for new converter, and several hours of labor.

Re: 999 repair

there is a company you can call, crapola! I cannot recall the name right now, they specialize in stuff like this, I ordered a manual a few years back for the TF trannys, it was about $11 delivered.

im sorry i cant recall the place, but there is one out there and its a bargain!

Re: 999 repair

I got my 727TF manual for $11 from J.C. Whitney. They have repair videos too - very good videos. The 999TF is NOT an overdrive trani - it's a lockup torque converter trani. Total cost for a local trani shops to rebuilt mine in my CJ in Delaware was $ 850.

The 518 TF is a overdrive trani - but never installed in Jeeps as far as I know. It has a large extra assembly on the tailshaft for the overdrive.

BTW: My 999TF w/ 1998 rebuild receipt will be for sale ($225) when I swap in the 401/727LU in October. Sounds like you need one now though. NOTE: Low at fliud will cause TF's to slip. Refill it and see if the problem is cured. Good Luck.

Re: 999 repair

Woodsrider,

If you have a friend who does Ford trannys, the 904,998,999 will be easy to do. The mopar tf's 727 and 904 etc are very much like the Ford c6 and c4. If you laid them both out peice by peice, they would vary only a little. The major differance is in the valve body. If you get a shift kit, it will have the info to keep you straight on that aspect of a rebuild. Otherwise, the clutch pack clearances, band adjustment and end play are the only other critical things.

good luck,

CJeep

Re: 999 repair

Thanks for the info. MikeG, I am going to shop around now that I have a ballpark figure on the cost.
