tranny rebuild advice please

Hi folks, I'm fairly new to the forums. I have a stock 91 GW. I need to rebuild the tranny. It's a daily driver that I use for ready trails and camping, nothing extreme. I read Ristows rebuild thread which was very helpful. I'm not finding any listings on the tci rebuild kit for the year of my vehicle.

Does anyone have recommendations for rebuild kits and torque converter for my 91 GW?

Thanks

i dunno why they stop at 1979 on the app list. it's the correct kit thru the end of the 727 run.

Is this something that can be done if one has a fairly decent tool set?

are there instructional dvd's one can buy? I need to have mine done mostly because of leaks and i took a tranny apart when i was a teenager and it was a scary selection of parts....

Tripwire, I'll let you know. I've never done this before but I've watched some YouTube videos and I have the tf 727 manual on pdf. Plus Ristow has a great write up. If you want the manual send me your email address.

yeah,you can do it with ordinary tools. you will need a beefy circlip pliers tho.


that kit should have the front band,i believe summit is wrong saying the band is not included,it has been included in the kits i got.

rebuild

I rebuilt my 727 a couple of months ago. Best advise was from Rich (Woodchomper) which was to buy a bunch of large freezer bags. Label every little part on bag with a marker. Also get a rebuild manual. There is a manly snapring on the output shaft, that Risto mentions above, that will laugh at a regular set of snapring pliers, so plan to get a really good set....Del

There is a book on the TF727 by Carl Munroe, I highly recomend it. It tells you how it works, it tells you how to rebuild each component, it tells you how to modify it.

Worth the money in my opinion.
