Okay guys I know this topic has been discussed a lot, but the more research I do on it the more confused I get and I cant find the answer I'm looking for. I have a transmission out of a 98 12v that has a white 3 pin connector on it and I'm trying to figure out if it is a 47re or 47rh. from the research I've done the 47rh came from years 94-95 and the 47re is 96+ but I've also read the difference between the two is the white 3 pin connector and the black 8 pin connector. and this transmission came out of a 98 12v but has the white 3pin connector.

I'm just trying to figure out which one it actually is. Is there any markings on it anywhere or tags that would tell me what it is? Please help I'm trying to sell it and I need to know so I don't screw someone over. Thanks for any input.

1994-1995 = 47RH

1996-2002 (maybe later???) = 47RE

The 47RE can be different as at some time the speedometer sensor changed location and moved into the rear axle.

So why does my tranny have the 3 pin connector?

Maybe someone switched the trans for a RH ? or changed the Valve body because that is where the connector hook's onto is Valve body . May have to drop pan .

Cowboy that is not a good picture of the 47re. That plug is totally covered in crud. A better picture of the plug might be more helpful, lol.

It's been waiting there a while for the transmission of a truck I don't drive to blow up haha. I was digging through my pictures and found this one which is slightly more gooder.

3 pin connector is an RH, white or black , center is ground, outboard pins are for o/d, and lockup solenoids

The plug with the cover on it is the one we need to see.

That is the one that goes to the valvebody harness. RH transmission just have wiring for od and lockup so one ground 2 powers. RE's have governor pressure solenoid (2 wires) pressure transducer (3 wires) and then od and lockup solenoids. That plug on the side is not the harness plug that is the neutral safety switch.

This is a picture of a 47re connector




This is a picture of the electronics in a 47re.



Someone put a refrigeration fitting cover on that plug you circled cowboy. There was never anything on our transmissions that looks like that.
