Since its introduction in 1964, the GM Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 transmission has been used in — literally — millions of cars, trucks and more.

The Turbo 400 was the automatic tranny of choice for its durability and simplicity, not to mention versatility since it could handle whatever you threw at it; family car, hot rod, race car, dragster, off-road truck or any vehicle needing a durable and reliable automatic transmission.

And since the Turbo 400 does not rely on computer controls, it was adapted to a wide range of configurations.

Rebuilding the Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 transmission is not particularly difficult, but it requires care and attention to detail, and this is where How To Rebuild & Modify GM Turbo 400 Transmissions comes in.

The How To Rebuild and Modify GM Turbo 400 Transmassions: HydraMatic Automatic Trans manual, packed with hundreds of sharp, close-up color photos, shows you how to remove the tranny from a typical vehicle followed by instructions for a complete teardown, inspection and step-by-step reassembly of the unit.

And for those who plan to use their Turbo 400 for high-performance applications, tips and advice on the subject are also included. Plus factory and aftermarket upgrades, parts interchange advice, and a transmission identification guide.

This book is a must-have for the GM Turbo 400 transmission do-it-yourself mechanic or enthusiast.
