Well, my case on my C4 broke in a nice hairline crack around the reverse servo. Not cool. Dumping out fluid whenever I engage reverse. I've got another C4 case so it looks like I have to pull the tranny and swap everything over. Anyway I am going to go to a reverse manual valve body instead of the transbrake valve body thats in there now. Too many "issues" with the transbrake to make me comfortable with it especially for street driving.


So I need to make it work. Does anyone have any experience with the TCI manual reverse pattern valve body? I assume I wont need the governor and that the modulator isnt used as well. I hope not since I dont have either one and I also dont have a modulator valve. Will I need one?

No. you don't need a modulator valve or governer. The Manual VB will bolt in the same as the 'brake valve body. You will need some method to plug the hole for the modulator.

I would be very tempted to put a modulator valve, pushrod and the modulator itself it.
Transbrake VB's are made with no modulator valve in plave. Full manual usually are not and the fluid leakage may be a proble. Just leave the parts in on your donor case.

Unfortunately I do not have the original valve from this case. Or I may have it in the junkpile. Hard to tell. I may just make up a plug for that passage out of bar stock
