    Welp, pulled the pan of the transmission to get it ready for the valve body only to find metal shards the size of my pinky nail and clutch material a good 1/4 " thick on the bottom of the pan. When driving it wasn't too much of a hassle. sometimes would take a moment or two for it to go from Park to Drive and on longer trips or highway trips, it would slip out of third and go into second then back again. Sometimes it would hunt for a gear. All tell-tale signs of a gummed up or stuck valve body. Maybe im lucky in finding it at home and it not finding me on the highway miles from home.

    Anyone know of anyone in Georgia with a 2004r?

    So i finally pulled the pan a few weeks back on the transmission and with so much material in the pan realized it’s in dire need of a new transmission.
    I’ve been looking and can’t find a 2004r or a th350. I’m pretty surprised about this and when i call around i get a **** ton of pushback when asking for a 2004r.
    Didn’t expect finding a transmission would be so difficult

    I have a few BOP TH350s but I'm in MD. You'd be better off prob. w/a 200R4 but if you get desperate, lmk. I was just going to sell them w/the 350 engines they're attached to but would separate.

    Maybe look on the Turbo Regal sites for the 200R4 (or 4R - I can never remember).

    I have an oddball TH350 or TH375 that would need rebuilt. You can have it for free +shipping. I think it has a long tail. My friend took it out of his 72 GS455 to swap in a built BB Trans and I have been moving it around my yard for 8 years. If I can't get rid of it I guess it's headed to China to be melted down and sold at Harbor Freight as a sub-standard tool or something. Converter goes with it. Nothing special just a stock converter.

    I could not find a single 2004r in my area. I tried a massive Craigslist search around 700 miles not one came up lol. I wish i could find one i could put in.
