The A-904 and A-727, debuting in 1960 and 1962, respectively, are 3-speed automatic Chrysler TorqueFlite Transmissions. In Mopar circles, they have become synonymous with strength, durability, and performance. In fact, 43 years after its first application, A-904s were still found in the Jeep lineup!
TorqueFlites are known for their dependability, but many have endured a tremendous amount of abuse over 50-plus years when hooked up to V-8 Mopar powerplants. There is little doubt that some of these automatics could be prone to failure, or at least need a thorough rebuild. Tom Hand shares his decades of experience rebuilding TorqueFlite transmissions with chapters dedicated to troubleshooting, disassembly and reassembly, performance modifications, post-installation procedures, and the most thorough source guide offered in print, ever.
Hand walks you through the TorqueFlite rebuild with color photos showcasing step-by-step procedures with highly detailed, easy-to-follow text. This book will keep money in your pocket and add experience to your résumé, but more important, it will help you get your Mopar back on the road!
Tom Hand has been reworking TorqueFlites since 1978. Hand has built, raced, and written about TorqueFlites and was fortunate to have grown up in a drag racing family as the eldest son of the famed Pontiac expert Jim Hand. Because of the family's Pontiac connections, he also has experience working on GM's T-400, T-350s, 700-R4s, and T-200 automatics. Toss in the occasional Ford C4 and C6 transmissions and Tom was fortunate to have learned about and worked on the best.
