go to www.mn12performance.com and in one of the technical sections he has some 4R70W tech videos. Download those and they show how to take the transmission apart. Then you would just replace all of the parts you took out with the new parts that come with a rebuild set

Those are the videos that I have. (I couldn't remember where I got them from when I first posted.) The link says that they are for the 4R70W, but the label for the videos say that it is for AODE. Also, the guy doing the rebuild in the video says it is an AODE. It is because of these inconsistancies that I wonder whether or not I can use these videos as a reference.
Personally I would not use a video as a reference. Something to watch and learn from, yes, but go with the OEM manuals for the actual operation.
On something as involved as rebuilding a transmission (or a modular engine) I suggest actually reading all the OEM manuals for a couple of years before, the year transmission you're working on, and a couple of years after. Reading is cheap compared to screwing up something in a transmission.
97 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC (Chip'd, 3.73 T/L... so far... )
97 Ford Aspire (Slow, but getting 36 mpg (f'n Ethenol!! )
84 F250 Dually w/6.9L Diesel (7.3L IDI pending)
73 Mercury Cougar Convertible w/351C 4V (Partially Restored)
69 F100 LWB w/460 Engine
76 Glastron Carlson 23' Jet Boat w/460 CJ Engine
The two are so close it's scary. (well maybe that's a bit strong. lol) There are a few minor differences but the majority of the parts are the same. the gearsest is different, the output shaft is slightly different... not much beyond that really. Use the OD 101 tranny article if you're rebuilding it yourself, tons of good info there.
