For Cable & Rod Linkages
"Long Shafts" Explained
Our 4LE fix-it kits resolve linkage clearance and alignment conflicts with the 4LE series transmissions. For rod linkages clearance issues usually arise near the electric switch thats located around the range select shaft on the exterior of the case. For cable applications the longer range select shafts can cause cable alignment issues as well.
|This TH700-R4 shows us an example of a SHORT style range select shaft.||This is how the shaft is on your 200-4R, 700-R4 and 4L60. Sometimes builders swap these short shafts into the later 4LE transmissions.|
|This 4L80E shows us an example of a LONG style range select shaft with the side mounted switch.||This photo shows the same transmission with the switched removed, exposing the extra length of the shaft.|
|Here we can see that with a normal offset lever, the cable gets bent at a harsh angle that will lead to binding and often cable failure.||In this photo, the 4LE-C kit is installed. This allows the cable to have a comfortable alignment and rest straight without binding issues.|
|This photo shows the 4LE-R kit installed on a 4L80E using the Shiftworks shifter lever.||As you can see above, the flat hex head stud allows for rod linkage use without any clearance issues.|
