how long is too long for a sitting transmision?

I have a 4r100 that was removed from a wrecked truck back in 2007. the tranny had 9000 miles on it after a complete rebuild. it has been sitting on my shop floor ever since. My current tranny is making high temps and the tourqe coverter is not locking up between shifts unless i let off the gas.

I'd say go for it but change the input & output seals before you do all that work to find out the seals are dry rotted.

I had a tranny laying for 1.5 years as a spare...... Installed it a few weeks ago. Runs perfect!

just depends on if it was out of the weather and full of fluid.

me and my uncle pull apart 50 year old Volkswagen transmissions all the time and the ones that sit outside are almost worthless and ones that are covered and full of gear oil are pristine.

so id say if its been kept somewhere inside you shouldn't have a peroblem

id say put some new atf in there when you get it all hooked up and just check the seals before you put it in.
