Default TH400 fwd pattern transbrake valve body

Why? Because I want to retain my His n Hers shifter.
Extensive googling tells me Jakes & CK performance maybe used to sell them but no longer do? Were they problematic? Any help appreciated.
Happy New Year
Jordan

I might be wrong but they make a forward shifting manual valve body and I can’t see why you couldn’t use a trans brake with it. All the trans brake does is lock in first and reverse. I’m going to do same research and see what I come up with.

I think your out of luck seems they only make valve body with trans brake with reverse shift pattern

Thanks for taking a look Gach. It seems both Jakes & CK will supply a complete transmission with a fwd pattern transbrake but wonít sell the valve body separately. Trying to get a valve body only as Iím in Sydney Australia & I have a good BOP core. We have some good trans guys here so Iíd prefer not to pay shipping and tax on a 150lb? 200lb? package if I can. Real easy to double the cost of a trans. I might email Jakes & CK and see what itís all about.

Thatís kind of what I found. Have to buy whole trans. That stucks. Hope you have luck.

Thanks for the complement on my car. Yeah right side no, would be strange. My uncle was the first to own right side drive here in the states, I like it it was different.

What kinda car was that?
I remember seeing a real early Deusenberg at National Auto Museum in Reno early 90’s was Right hand drive. Interesting. Maybe because Rolls Royce was RHD?

Chris at CK is sometimes hard to get a hold of but will be able to tell you.
My suggestion is log on to yellow bullet, go to the auto transmission section, Hutch is the moderator, (he is good) and CK answers questions there too.
Might be some ass wipes with stupid answers, but you should get the correct answer there pretty fast.

Thanks for that JSPont, I’ll give it a go. I’m registered at Yellow Bullet but haven’t spent much time there.
