Yeah ---- that's fine under the circumstances.I skipped disconnecting any transmission cooler lines and just dropped the pan
There's noit much to see as fqar as hardware inside the transmission goes .... most of the damage - IF there is any ---- will be in components that are inside drums and housings.That’s as bad as it gets. About to look and see if anything looks worn on the transmission itself
It’s just a solenoid kit, it only replaces all the solenoids, the manifold pressure switch, and the wiring harness to all of the above. I am looking at everything in that kit after dropping the pan. I can’t see how it’s as involved as you are saying. Unless there is something I’m missing???Do you feel capable? Not to insult, but this is pretty close to "clean room" work but without bunny suits.
I personally don't know that kit. It looks nice. I stick to Mr. Shift and the "Shift Kit" (a registered trademark of Gil Younger's). I personally knew Gil Younger when he was alive and fully trust and totally recommend any of his products.
Some of these kits require dropping the valve body and there are check balls that require serious finesse to put them back ... in the right place ... and not rolling into Hades under your toolbox and disappearing forever.
I'd normally say go for it ... it certainly can't hurt ... but you will learn something about your transmission.
HINT ----> I make some alignment studs out of much longer bolts with the heads cut off, just to help align things and make sure the check balls go into the correct ports in the case.
That's the tricky part ... getting them where they actually belong.PS ... buy a can of Dr. Tranny ... in green.
