Yes, I have been using a copy of the ATSG manual and it is incredibly helpful as a supplement to the advice I've read in past threads here on EF and the resources on Sonnax's site.Do you have a manual that pictures and describes the internals?
I gave up on getting out the valve in the SS4 bore and tried to just put the VB back together -- I can't get the further inboard L pin in place (noted by pick in image below) for the SS4 valving, so I think I'm just going to buy a reman VB from Sonnax.
It looks like the Sonnax reman VB comes with upgrades equivalent to a shift kit and all of their valves have a different anodization, presumable for better wear characteristics. The whole VB costs about the same as what I've already sunk into my old VB between the solenoids, shift kit, and other misc. bits, so it seems like a good purchase to me. Anyone have good luck with the Sonnax reman VB?
