Default Get your valve body from Valvebody Pros!!!

I bought two valve bodies that were bad. A waste of time and labor.
I finally did alot of research and found a company called Valvebody Pros
and that were a little more expensive, but well worth the cost because
you know you'll have a correctly rebuilt VB. I found they are a member of
TRANi. Their number is 877-611-7767. If you check your input shaft nut and
it seems tight, replace it anyway or you my be sorry.

interesting, you have the A518/46RH (727 TF) trans listed that I had in my Grand Cherokee. My original trans lasted 224,000 miles behind the V8. I had 33's on it w/ stock gears too. I had it rebuilt HD w/ a shift kit (not sure the brand, came w/ the rebuild), but holy crap did the shift kit make a huge difference!

1998 SC2
Default Re: Get your valve body from Valvebody Pros!!!

Two questions fer ya!

My 98 SC2 will surge a little in park or neutral after I have driven it a while. Kind of feels like it is still trying to go. Weird. Any Idears?

Also, my 1990 5.7 Suburban with the L460E has a vibration when driving, and it is in the tranny. Now my question comes with a couple of qulifications. First, the local tranny shops say that it is a out of balance torque converter, and instead of just relplacing the TC, they say to get it rebuilt to the tune of $1900-$2500!
I spoke with a guy I know that has the same vehicle with a deisel engine and he sadi that he used to have the same porblem, but he had the tranny filter replaced and some solenoid upgraded and it took it away.

could this be caused by a valve body that is somehow stuck? Or is there no way of knowing without inspection? I can get a GM new tranny and TC for $1100 if I do the install. This has a 3 yeaar 100,00 mile warranty. The rebuild is only 1 year, but it is supposedly heavy duty.(?)!
...

Do a "SEARCH" on "torque converter stuck" and you will see a post
from Dr. B which has an excellent and easy check to do.

As for your other car, the vibration could be a bad tire, bad u-joint, bad
transmission mount etc. I'd check all these before messing with the tranny.

All checks out. It is tranny related. Though I haven't checked the mounts.
