    Default Getting ready to dive into the 4l60e and my truck!

    Well I have burnt up my 3-4 clutches, so I have decided to rebuild.

    I ordered everything from PATC down in Louisiana. I have hopefully ordered everything I need. It has been quite a bit of time since GM mechanic school. I am hoping it wont take me too long, and I hope I dont burn up a new set of clutches and stuff.

    Anyways, just thought I could start a thread I could use for pics and hopefully the beginning of my build.

    By the way its a 1994 GMC Sierra 4X4 extended cab.

    Thanks.

    Paul.

    Make sure you read Joe AirForce's thread. He did this exact same thing and posted a lot of pictures. Also make sure you replace the solid input shaft rings as these can cause the 3-4 clutch problem and most guys without the special tool opt not to change them. Also I would install a TransGo Junior Kit in this transmission.

    What does the shift kit change?

    Yeah I saw the thread and it looks like it will help. If I dont have the tool I will take it to a machine shop to have it pressed on or applied.

    The shift Kit addresses high rate failure areas in the valve body. The instructions alone are worth the price of the kit. As far as changing the solid rings this can be done without the special tools. Send me a PM when you get to them and I'll walk you through it. I have rebuilt over 100 of these transmissions.

    Almost got the trans out. Just one more bolt and it should be out.

    By the way the trans fluid was blacker then black and smelled extremely burnt.

    so tranny is apart and I am starting to put back together.

    How cheap would a shop do the teflon rings, or cn I do it myself with stuff found around the shop instead of buying the expensive tools?

    Stretch them just enough to get them into the groove. Then you squeeze them back down to size carefully. A large zip tie with the teeth removed will squeeze them down or a hose clamp around a piece of thin sheet metal works too. Once you get the ring close use the drum and the pump stator support for the final sizing.
