I have a 4R70W trans that needs rebuilt ,When i broke it down i noticed that the REVERSE CLUTCH DRUM looked brunt.I have a AODE will it work and will i still have the WIDE ratio of the 4R70W? Thanks for any help.
Depending upon the year of the 4R70W it may have the reverse drum with the mechanical diode on the front of it. The only real way to be certain is to pull both apart and compare. As a precautionary step I would install an aftermarket spiral-ring retainer for the one way clutch.
The wide ratio has nothing to do with the reverse drum and everything to do with the planetary, sun, and shell gears. If the lug setup on the reverse drum in your AOD-E is the same as the one in the 4R70W you will be set to go.
