Transmission Information
=================================================


  TH-700-R4 Drive Shaft should be 39 inches long

  Deciphering the GM TH-700-R4 Casing Number
  -------------------------------------------------
  Located above right-rear corner of oil pan.
  Digit 1:      year of production
  Digit 2-4:    model of car (YK=Corvette, M=TH700-R4)
  Digits 5-7:   day of year of production


  Adjusting TV cable
  -------------------------------------------------
  Depress and hold release
  Pull slider back to fully retracted position
  Un-Depress release
  Rotate throttle to full open (slider should ratchet forward)
  Repeat as necessary


  Modifying Transmission Lockup to one-wire operation
  -------------------------------------------------
  Remove Pan
  Remove wire running from 4th gear switch to 4-pin connnector
  Replace 4th gear switch with GM-8642473 (on right)
  Remove TCC solenoid ground wire from 4-pin connector
  Attach TCC solenoid ground wire to new 4th gear switch



This is a diagram of the TCC lockup circuit on a TH700-R4. On the left is the stock setup, and on the right is a "one-wire conversion" you can do by changing one of the switches inside the pan of the transmission. It is also possible to make this change entirely externally by using a relay, which I may post sometime in the future.

    Summary:
    The normal lockup function of the automatic (passive) belt reel can cause the belt motor winch assembly to lockup
    such that the passive belt system will not deploy/function or gets stuck at various points along the track causing
    the kinking or breaking of its cable or detachment of the tongue.
    Consequence:
    If this occurs the occupants of the vehicle cannot use the safety belts, increasing the risk of injury in the event
    of a sudden stop or accident.

    Jaguar will repair the passive belt system if this problem occurs or has occurred. Jaguar will notify owners of the
    existence of a lifetime warranty on components of the automatic (passive) belt system.
