Any idea on the value of stock PG valve bodies?
Used TCI bracket VB?

Big money, most of the big trans brake VB producers are down to producing billet VB's only, because they're out of oem cast iron cores.

Don't throw em away whatever you do. Or throw em my way, if you're dying to throw em out.

I have a stockpile I'm keeping for friendly's.

Godley (rip) told me 20 plus years ago, don't throw em away.

Not sure about Big Money, but if not willing to sell or hold on to them, I wouldn't scrap them.

I got a couple stock 1.76 PG's sitting. People still use them depending on hp/tq/weight,...


Cool

I have a couple old ATI footbrake valve bodies from way back in the day. The other week I was contemplating what to do with them since the stock trans brake valve body I have in the car now is 25 years old lol. Don't see how you can ever wear a cast iron one out. I still use stock cases, pumps, drums valve body and tail shaft housing going 5.50s...

Best factory transmissions ever.

You can wear em out freshening them - resurfacing.

I've got a dozen or so virgin stock VB's stashed.

I bet they're high rent $$ right about now, running low.

Resurfacing a valve body at freshen up? Is that a thing? Mines been apart so many times I lost count. Been in every car I button raced since 1998...Never thought of cleaning up the surfaces. Don't run gaskets between the plate either.

You watch now that I mentioned it I will have a VB leak this weekend.... Big Grin

If the paint ever drips off converter, you might need a resurface on the VB (warped). I doubt that'll happen though, converters are indestructible these days, spragless anyway. Smile

460 runs on a alum BTE valve body, zero issues and deadly consistent and reliable. Changed fluid at 350 runs and it was so good I saved it for use at the track if someone or me gets jammed up and has to drop the pan.

I have two complete 1.76 'glides, if anyone is looking. never raced Virgin planetaries, one with cast iron pro-brake and the other with BTE alum pro-brake, 100% fresh, never raced. One has stock tail housing the other has roller BTE housing.

Same here with 350+ on both the BTE aluminum valve bodies in both the BTE transmissions in both my dragster and Firebird. Consistency and reliability that helped win us a lot of money, another Wally and a #2 finish in the LODRS this season.
