I was checkin out ebay and was lookin at the vette servos, and ive seen the basic servos with rings for like $12, then they had one with a new pin for like $27, then there was one that had one with the servo, valve, and piston for $35. what would be the advantages of buyin the one with the valve and piston also compared to the basic servo??

First kit is what most use, it's just the apply piston with o-rings. That's mkay.

Second is with a pin, the pin w/o the line is the longest. Longer pin allows you to set clearance exactly. Most stock pins are fine, so I wouldn't see the need for the extra expense of the pin.

Last is the first servo w/ what appears to be the aluminum accumulator pistons. I like them a lot. Stockers are plastic and like to crack under pressure causing a drop in line pressure thus making the 1-2 upshift slip.

So in your opinion, would it be worth the little bit of extra cash to get the last one? I guess it would be better to replace the plastic stuff with metal anyways. $35 isn't that much money anyways and tomorrows pay day, so if u say its worth it Eric, ill get something like that.

Oh yeah, I replaced all my plastic shit in mine! I have those aluminum ones from GM in there. I'm going to put in pinless accumulator pistons... those are them smaller ones. The pinless ones will show no wear or hyd leaks but they aren't really necessary unless you're just wanting to end all problems... then I'd recommend a nice TransGo setup to go along with that 'Vette servo. :D

I havn't gotten the chance to start puttin apart the tranny today, but where do the valves and pistons come in to play? I was lookin at the install tech article on here and since it was just for the basic servo kit, it didn't go into detail about the other stuff...can anyone gimme an idea of what to do with the valves and piston?

Those other parts go into the accumulator body. It's a lil cup looking deal that attached to the VB. Up toward the passanger front of the case I believe.
