Okayyy... I finally got around to grabbing a trans out of storage for a long awaited rebuild.
I need to ID this Trans/Valvebody before I go spending money I don't have on parts that won't work.
I only found a few numbers stamped on the pan rail and a few casting numbers on the case.
I was hoping someone could decode it and maybe answer a few Q's.
The previous owner said it came out of his 68 charger.
Trans Case Pan rail: G2538334 2425030
Part number: 2466900 on main case body, 2466901 on tail shaft.
There were also some box type date codes but the case is still a little too dirty to ID those (started with 65 and had dots into 9 or 10 of the boxes).
There was no valvebody with that trans when I bought it (previous owner was keeping it).
Can I use any valvebody I want or does each trans use particular valvebodies?
I also have a valvebody from a smallblock 727, will that VB work in the trans I am trying to ID?
Here are the numbers from that smallblock 727 VB...
Part # on top side of VB: 3410925 (has wheel type date code 06/1971)
Part # on bottom side of VB: 3410435
Number stamped on separator plate: 10225/1000041
I also plan to use a Trans-go TF2 if that makes a difference with the valvebody choice.
Last Q... what's the best rebuild/master rebuild kit with the best parts for the money? who's the best to shop with?
I plan to put this trans behind a mild 440, have no idea how many hp but I'm sure will produce way, way, wayyy less than 600hp.
