Hey fellas! It's been a bit. My poor '73 has been sitting for almost a year now with a TH400 that's been on it's way out. I finally just sold my Chevelle, so I'm ready to get the ball rolling. This will be my first transmission rebuild. I've done several engine swaps and a couple engine builds, but I've never been in a trans to do more than a filter change. Patient: '73 Camaro 350 Mild Cam Holley 650 Edelbrock Performer Intake Longtubes / 3" Exhaust That's it, pretty mild. Plans: I want the TH400 to be beefy, because I drive the car pretty hard. I have a Hurst ratchet shifter and I almost always smash through the gears when I'm messing around. It's had the same trans in it for 20+ years, and as far as I know, it just has a shift kit that used to chirp 2nd (also, I had someone tell me that it's actually a reprogram kit, NOT a shift kit that get's you that firm shift?) Anyway, so yes - I'd like it to be stronger than it needs to be. Eventually, I'll throw some good heads on the engine and get it to breathe a bit better, but I'm pretty happy with the motor. What I'm unhappy with is the rest of the driveline. It has a stock replacement torque converter on it, and despite it having a locker rear end (or welded, for all I know) I think it still has 2.73 gears. I want it to utilize the power more efficiently, so I'll be putting in a new converter as well.I think the converter spewed it's guts and is the reason for everything failing in the first place. I could use some help picking a stall size, too. I was thinking of getting one from Jegs. What I Currently Have: I bought these specifically for the rebuild: • Cliff Ruggles TH400 rebuild workbench book (https://www.amazon.com/Rebuild-Modi...?ie=UTF8&qid=1516423431&sr=8-1&keywords=th400) • Bushing Driver Kit • Digital Caliper Gauge • Digital Dial Indicator Also have: • Sockets, wrenches, plenty of screwdrivers, feeler gauges, c-clamps, impacts, the usual and some more. Rebuild Kits: These are the two kits I have saved: 1. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Th400-400-Alto-Red-Eagle-Kolene-Master-Transmission-Rebuild-Kit-1965-On-Level-2/371068211280?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 "This rebuild kit includes all of the High Performance Red Alto Friction Plates, Kolene Steel Plates, Sealing Rings, Metal Clad Seals, Gaskets, Orings & Rubber Piston Seals + Red Eagle Front band, Pump bushing, tail hsg bushing, and modulator!!" 2. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Th400-400-Alto-Red-Eagle-Kolene-Master-Transmission-Rebuild-Kit-1965-On-Level-2/371068211280?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 "This rebuild kit includes all of the High Performance Red Alto Friction Plates, Kolene Steel Plates, Sealing Rings, Metal Clad Seals, Gaskets, Orings, rubber Piston Seals, High performance Red Eagle Band, filter modulator, Complete Bushing Kit + Complete Torrington Bearing Kit, Thrust Washer kit, and Reverse Band!!" ----------------------------- I'm aiming for #2 as it seems to be the "complete" kit, but I guess it's hard to tell what I NEED without opening the case up and having a look. But I guess I'd prefer to rebuild everything while I'm in there. Anyway, I think that's everything I have at the moment. Could you guys help me choose a kit, a converter, identify any missing parts/tools, and offer any further advice? Thank you very much everyone!
