    I just recently bought a 4l60e trans case 2 piece from a 97 Chevy and didn't know at the time I bought it the difference from 94-97 and was wandering if I could use the guys and wires from the 94 in the 97 casing my 94 4l60 trans cracked and I picked up the 97 trans case for 100 bucks and need the truck back on the road, if I can't use the guts and wires from the 94 how can I make the 97 trans work with the truck thanks

    You should be able to transfer the valve body, wiring harness, VSS, PN switch, and non-PWM pump from the 94 trans to the 97 trans and be OK. My '97 Suburban has the 1 piece bellhousing and case, but I suppose others could have gotten the 2 piece at some point. May want to check the tag on top of the trans or the serial number stamped above the pan rail on the passenger side to verify what the trans was originally installed in, what year, etc.

    Hopefully I'm not asking a question that had already been brought up, but scanning thru I didn't see it. The 96 4l60e, the tailshaft housing is a 4 bolt patern connecting it to the tranny, and the 98 it is a 6 bolt pattern. Now on the flip side of the housing, does the pattern bolting the tailshaft housing to the tcase, does that pattern change between 96 and 98?

    Hi I need to replace the transmission in my daughters 1997 Jimmy 4x4. If I am reading these posts correctly 1996 and up ? transmissions will fit, I will just have to deal with the possibility of a 13 pin connector. Is that correct?
    Thanks in advance for any help.
