is there any differneces in the 12v 47re 's and the 24v re's? looking to rebuild a shell 47re, but want to know if theres any differneces to look out for.thanks -scott
The torque converter clutch in the 47RE is controlledThe only differences in the RH and RE versions was the valvebody and the case. Both make allowances for the wiring and the solenoids on the RE version.
The torque converter clutch in the 47RE is controlled
by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The
torque converter clutch engages in fourth gear, and
in third gear under various conditions, such as when
the O/D switch is OFF, when the vehicle is cruising
on a level surface after the vehicle has warmed up.
The torque converter clutch will disengage momentarily
when an increase in engine load is sensed by
the PCM, such as when the vehicle begins to go
uphill or the throttle pressure is increased. If the above is accurate, and I have every reason to believe it is, You will need the PCM in order us use the RE rather than the RH. PM me and I will send you a PDF on the 47RE and you can decide for yourself, and at least have a basis for the rebuild.
