700R4 Transmission - Check Ball Locations
On this video we see the factory check-ball locations for this particular model. I also share with you the alternative check-ball locations that I have been using for many years on 700's. The rule of thumb I share with you here Only applies to 700's. If you have a bathtub with 2 holes, it takes a check-ball. If your bathtub only has a square or one hole, no check-ball. I also recommend you pick up a repair manual where you are buying your parts. They should have one there.
700R4 Transmission Valve Body - Transmission Repair - Transgo Kit Install
This is a video of a THM-700-R4 Transmission. It is very common that after you get done with one of this units, it will not want to upshift into 4th gear. My repair kit of choice for this unit is a Transgo kit as you see here. There are different types and brands of valve body kits on the market and they all work very well. If you notice, this is not a high performance kit, it is designed to take care of some of the factory flaws and normal ware that you may encounter on the bores and springs. Transmission repair is a vey fast paced line of work and the use of this kits is very helpful at times since it takes the guess work out of the ones that decide to give you some trouble. Saving you time and getting it out the door quickly to work on the next one.

700R4 Torqe Converter Lock Up Wiring
I've learned a lot over the winter rebuilding my Chevy automatic transmissions. Thanks a bunch to Michelle for letting me take over the basement all winter and putting up with the musk of burnt tranny fluid. I feel much better about my automatic Astro van now, knowing I can fix the transmission, should I burn it out. Before it was like "when's this trans going to go?" and I would always be on the look out for a new van, or have a back up truck ready to go. Now I will have a back up automatic transmission built and ready to install. I didn't really film the rebuilding, cause honestly I didn't know what I was doing, and it took about 6 months, hour here, hour there. Next one I will film, with short cuts, to show what you most likely get with a $800 rebuild. I did a few mods to the automatic transmission to make it hold up better towing the 4500lb electrical trailer. Those mods are going to cost me more work on the install, because I will have to mess about pulling the governor, and modifying the governor, to get the shift rpms back to where they were before the higher pressures and bigger valves. I have 2 videos covering the mods I did here.
