After some research I found that Sonnax™ puts the 47/48RE normal cooler flow at IDLE DRIVE at .09 GPM, at CRUISE TCC OFF cooler flow is 1.9 GPM, CRUISE TCC APPLY cooler flow is 3.2 GPM, and CRUISE TCC CANCEL cooler flow drops back to 1.9 GPM.
NOTE: Anything over 4.0 GPM may cause over-heat condition as rapid flow of fluid through cooler (s) decreases heat dissipation.
Don't forget a trans temp gauge. Dodge used to put the sender in the rear servo pressure test port (727) of motorhomes back in the 70's. They also used this in medium duty Dodge trucks. Otherwise put the sender in the line going to the trans cooler.
The transducer on the governor pressure manifold measures temps in the pan however its the newer type so resistance is different that earlier models need too find a gauge that works with it. I like the idea of several sensors and a switch to read each as desired on one gauge.
Converting my 47RH to 47RE by drilling case at solenoid connector port then using an upgraded 47RE valve body and stand alone controller that uses VSS.
Here are images of some of the goodies OEM next to custom Billet etc.

Hello, I know this subject has been discussed before but I still cant find the answer I am looking. I am planning to mount a 4bt to an AOD. My understand is that it is a direct bolt on but flexplate will not work even with a C6 due to its depth. I remembered someone welded a two piece with...
