What is "proper" 47re line pressure?
Hey fellas. I got a chance to measure the line pressure in my 24 valve 47re. The transmission still shifts fine, but I want to make sure I keep it that way. I bought the truck about 20,000 ago used. The original transmission went and was replaced about 90,000 ago, but that's all the owner really knew, he wasn't sure what exactly was put in or if the old one was rebuilt.
It is a 99 transmission case with a <97 valve body. At idle the line pressure was about 55-60#, at 3,000 it was about 85-90#. I tried to research it, but I can't really find a standard for stock 47re transmission pressure. What do you guys think?
I'm just wondering whether I should leave it be since it's still shifting good after 90,000 or if I should put in a shift kit to improve it's life. She's gonna get used for towing, but there isn't any power mods.
