Installing 01 GT Tranns

Well my guys wanted to know everything that is needed to know when installing this transmission.. He wanted like pictures or whatever documention needs to do this.. He knows what he is doing dont get me wrong he is just covering himself so nothing messes up.. I have the wiring harness done by JL, torque convertor from justinh which came from alan, and this saturday i will be having the trans built to handle the TC and the jmod will also be done.. How's that for the longest run on sentence! but anyways is there anything im missing?

BTW I just got today mark viii flexplate, bolts and nuts.

I am hoping to drive her for the first time a 6 months next wensday

Big trans cooler/lines to install it. Having the snap ring welded to the drum? Ummm, how about all the gaskets to actually reassemble the trans (front pump gaskets, front pump seal, etc...) Rags to clean up after the Mercon bath

Just trying to make sure you don't forget anything.


These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.
