32rh Manual Valve Body

Anyone know of any out there?

Would love to see if I can get my hands on a reverse manual v.b. with compression braking

I've seen some listed for the 999 that should work in your 32rh.

Why do you want a reverse manual valve body?

Clutchless manual transmission. Reverse so easy to shift from R to 1. And compression braking would be a big plus for going down inclines

Ahh, didn't think about the advantage of being able to shift from 1st to rev quicker.

Basically it would help to be able to use the engine to brake while going down steep inclines, and from my understanding the only way to do that is with a manual valve body.

How would a manual valve body make the shift quicker?

It puts first gear next to neutral.

So the new shift pattern is D-R-N-1-2-3 instead of D-R-N-3-2-1.

Did you receive that tranny pan okay?

I did for a while and I really liked it.

RPM was high at highway speeds (about 3,500 at 70 mph), but the low end power made it all worth it.

um...i think the torque converter negates compression braking.
i've never had it work for me while in "1" and 4lo. i don't see why a manual valve would change anything, the engine is already stuck in 1st gear irreguardless of your shift pattern.

Im at 4.56 and 32s right now, 3 spd auto as well. Highway is almost unbearable. The plan was to go to 35s when I went to 4.56, but I ran out of money. When you drive on the highway, do you just cruise at 3500 the whole time? That cant be good for the engine can it?

Yes, when I was running 33s I would run 3,500-3,800 RPM on the highway. I would set the cruise at 75 and leave it.

I'm currently running 35s. I turn about 3,300-3,500 on the highway at 70-75 MPH.

Running this RPM for extended periods does not seem to have much of an effect on the I6.

I have 155k miles on mine now - over 120k miles are with 4.56 gears and many of those miles are on the highway.

hmm, I guess thats something to think about. I had to drive 210 miles back to school within a week on installing the 8.8/4.56. I cruised at 60-65 the whole time. I didn't really care about mpg, just afraid that cruising at 3500 rpms for 3 hrs would hurt the engine, but I guess thats just a myth.

Trying to get some more research into this. I keep running into sites saying the 32rh is the same as the TF999 in CJs and some sites saying there are different...

Anyone know differences, are valve bodies interchangable? I just cracked the housing of the trans so looking for a replacement and and want to see if I can get a valve body before I install the replacement
