Default Can you adapt a 1992 4t60 transmission into a 1996 car?

I have a 1992 Park Avenue Ultra with a good transmission. And I found a great deal on a 1996 park avenue ultra with a bad tranny (also 4T60-HD). I want to put the 1992'* transmission into the 1996. Does anyone have any expierence in doing this. ANY information is appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Enrique

You will need the wiring diagram for the 2 transmissions... The pinouts are diffrent as the connector may have a diffrence but I'm not sure on that one...

The 96'* Trans uses a tranny fluid temp sensor, the 92'* uses a Temp switch as the 92 PCM did not monitor the trans fluid temp... You will need to know if you can adapt the sensor from the 96 trans to the 92 trans... Also I wonder if there is a stall speed diffrence betwenn the transmissions as one had the series I engine and the other a series II ....

Just some thoughts for you...

The switch is in the Valve body on the 92 trans, and iirc the Temperature sensor is in the bottom of the sidepan just below the valve body for the 96

I noticed the one on craigslist doesn't say its an ultra. I hope you verified that since the non-ultra used the NA engine and not the supercharged.

All the same stuff should apply as the other tranny. Just get a wiring diagram for both cars with the pinouts for the tranny and it shouldn't be that hard to make it work. Leave the original convertor from the car on that car, don't put the convertor on with the tranny. (keep the convertor with the engine, not the tranny if that makes any sense).

the converter on the riviera is shot so I would be taking the one from the PA. I am guessing the stall speeds change?
