need a transmission pan

hopefully a simple question. I know jack squat about transmissions except that my pan is badly rusted and leaking. I know my transmission is a 46RE, I can find some good deals on a 727 pan, but im not sure if it would fit. It looks the same. so whats the difference?

Re: need a transmission pan

727 has same bolt pattern. But is not deep enough for the added valvebody thickness in your transmission... Sorry, won't fly.

Re: need a transmission pan

what if the 727 pan were a deep pan approx. 2 inches deeper than a regular 727?

Re: need a transmission pan

Thats cutting it pretty close.

If you used a transmission filter from a '89-'96 unit, you would have better luck. Because the filter is thinner. Though, then you have to find the correct bolt length for the added hole on the early filter

Then you still need to measure to make sure the filter isn't squished against the pan. Or you might not get enough volume of fluid for proper operation.
