    Dunno how tranny expert 88grandmarq feels about PMs in situations like this, but sending him a PM might be something to consider.

    I don't know much about trannys, but I doubt pump failure is all that common in these ones. I would be inclined to give the TC alignment another go. I had a similar but different problem with a TC...

    Did you get the 99 or the 01?



    Use of the original slip yoke and the spacer is a convenient alternative to changing the tailshaft housing.

    I know they changed the valve body in '01. That was also the year the engines changed from NPI to PI. I'm guessing that if the '01 could be made to work, it would be too big of a PITA. Here's a link...

    Pending a more definitive answer, AFAIK they all mount the same way on the fender liner, and I've never heard of any differences in the fender liners for whales.

    I would think just wiping the inside of the TB and plate with a rag to the extent that you can would be fine. If there's a little hole in the plate, make sure the gunk didn't get pushed into it....

    The wear stuff is links and bushings, and you would generally want new. The bushing brackets and fasteners for the rear bar are probably salvage items. I've seen front bushings sold with their own...

    I'm guessing he meant CVPI instead of PI. I know earlier CVPIs always had larger MAFs for which a tune was required. I'm guessing that is also true for all the later ones too but don't know for sure....

    Getting Intimate with the 4R70W

    I just found a video series that seems to deal with the ins and outs of the 4R70W, with mention of related models. Here is the first in the series:

    It turns out that changing the bushing can actually be done without removing the extension housing like a lot of people do (and which would have been a bit much for me). There is a tool that gets...

    The color of the tranny fluid is important too. If it's not dark, that's a good sign.

    Please do let us know what's up with the rear end. I don't think I've heard of such a problem before.
