tranny rebuild

does anyone have a list of the parts or a link of the typical parts replaced in an automatic transmission rebuild?

also since our trannys are obviously pieces of ****...which parts are the most important to upgrade to sustain more power and longer life?

trying not to break the bank here

Uh im not real sure, but i'd say a good transmission shop would know. If your not going for a lot of power just buy the suncoast rebuild and a good TC and good VB you'd be set.

The guy that built mine keeps telling me he'll give me a list but never has. These guys like to keep their "secrets" close. Torque converter is the weakest link. Get a better than good one. I have one that supposedly is used in F550-650 power company line trucks. 13000-14000 miles so far and doing well. Before, this one the truck killed three FORD remanufactured ones. In fact, I still had warranty left and gave it up to get one that wouldn't leave me stranded. My builder told me that the FORD remanufactured one wasn't even assembled correctly. I don't know, but I expect these are built by "the low bidder" and you know how that can be sometimes?

Find someone that pulls sleds or drag races their truck and ask who built their tranny. That's what I did. Worked out so far.

Good luck!

ok well here's the thing...my job pays for schooling so i decided to go to lincoln tech for auto technician. and they told me that during the transmission section of the course you can work on and rebuild your own transmission if you want instead of one of the ones they provide for you. so buying a new or rebuilt one is out of the question...and i'm sure i'll know all of the parts needed by the time i get to that stage...so mostly i want to know what needs to be replaced...so stuff like hank said "torque converter is weakest link" ...good info for me. thanks...anything else that's damn near mandatory for 350+hp? i'm not at those numbers yet obviously, but i will be.

you will want a valve body as well. I was looking into a suncoast rebuild that comes with all the stuff you'd need for the inside im pretty sure.

are torque converters are bad about balloning up and destroying the pump, also the single clutch is really a weak setup for these massive trucks, stock planetaries will grenade with stock power, upgrade the input shaft and valve body if anything over stock

My torque converter shredded and went threw my pump and the pump pumped the pieces through out the whole transmission and destroyed it all.

jesus every part is expensive... standard rebuild kit is $500... accumulator body is $350...ats input shaft is $450...torque converters run from $900-$1300...so we're talkin $2,500 for me to do it myself and still not upgrade everything!!...

first thing...the rebuild kit is basically a **** load of seals...just seals...for 500...ripoff
input shaft...no shaft should cost $450...

anyone have nay advice or ways to save on some of these parts? maybe cheaper websites or something
