CORRECTION: Modification as follows, of the parts indicated, will increase lube flow to both the 3rd roller clutch and the input sprag.
1 . MODIFY OUTPUT SHAFT:
Grind four (4) flats on the output shaft at the front of the bearing in the locations.
2. MODIFY OUTPUT SAHFT BEARING:
Remove idividual needle bearings, in three equally spaced locations around the bearing, to provide three “Troughs” for additonal lube oil to flow. Removing the needles does not impair the durability of the bearing assembly.

When installing the sprag assembly onto the input sun gear, align one of the three lube oil holes in the inner race, with one of the two lube oil holes in the input sun gear.
THM 4L60 (700-R4) HIGH LINE PRESSURE
COMPLAINT: Very harsh upshifts, all gears, harsh engagement forward gears and reverse.
CAUSE: High line pressure. The cause of the high line pressure can be a hung pressure regulator valve, or a binding slide in the pump body. The bind of the slide can be caused by mis-tightening the pump body to the pump cover. Another possible cause can be a blown orifice cup plug located in the pump cover shown in Figure 1. This cup plug is in the reduce pressure oil circuit.
CORRECTION: CORRECTION: The problem can be corrected by replacing the orifice cup plug. The orifice in this plug is .040-.045.
