did you get all the seals and o-rings? there should be at least 4 (3 for the vette servo and 1 for the cover).

i'll post again in a minute, i'm loading some pics for you.

on the pass side of the tranny you'll see the cover (here's how everything looks from the side)


use a screwdriver to remove the retaining ring around it (you'll see two notches where you can pry it out), then use visegrips or channel lock pliers to wiggle it out.
if it doesn't want to come out you'll have to cut the o-ring off and pull it out, after that the cover will come out.

you may have to remove the assembly one piece at a time, here's how they look. they would be in order from right to left.


don't lose the small spring (on my finger tips), it may be inside the case still.

if the assembly doesn't want to come out you can pry lightly under the retainer on the pin, a little bit of effort should get it out.

remove the outer housing of the 2nd gear servo and this is what you're left with. then remove this E-clip, retainer, spring and pin.


then compress this with a C-clamp to remove the retaining ring, underneath is a spring.



now reinstall the springs, retainers and everything in reverse order. it will be a pain in the ass to get the cover back in, you have to compress everything into the tranny before you can get the retaining ring back into the tranny case.

that's it!

yes, there's a noticable difference when it shifts to 2nd.

i forgot to mention that you should clean up around the cover before you remove it and before putting everything back in, that way there's less chance of getting dirt and grit inside the tranny when you reinstall everything.

goodluck, you'll enjoy the results!

Thanks for the post and the pictures. i was thinking about doing this as well on my 93 4L60E, but my buddy over at B&M transmissions warned me not to because of the high milage on my tranny. I have close to 200K on it. Said that putting the corvette servo will cause it to wear down alot faster and Id be pushing it alot more. If your tranny has low miles go for it. But if it has quite a bit of milage I would abstain from doing it.

Just an FYI


Thanks again.

I have billet servo, boost valve, shift kit, 2600 stall.. It is nice, but gets really annoying.. That sounds like the transmission I got from netgearhead.. If that is the company you are looking at, DONT BUY FROM THEM!!! Tehy rebuilt mine 3 times, and it wouldnt hold up, and then I had to pay someone else to do it right..
