Hey, awesome. I have a bunch of Mopar stuff, all currently running pure hydraulic 3 speed autos (and carbs, and distributors, etc) that I've been contemplating various upgrades to, including OD transmissions. Since getting anything sufficiently new involves electronically controlled transmissions, this is a remarkably fortuitous thread for me to stumble into.
Sadly, I'm an utter n00b
on this front. I have a huge gap (and, having done a bunch of reading this last weekend, I'm starting to realise that I don't even yet quite grasp just how
huge of a gap) in my knowledge, that jumps from "software" (and as y'all might have inferred from the username, not even especially low level
software) to "automotive electrical". Where by automotive electrical I mean "actual wires, generally not smaller than 18 gauge, mostly for moving steady state or very
slowly switched 12v around, usually to make lights work". My main experiences with "chips" so far to date all also involve salsa.
So, regarding the info posted at the beginning of this thread, is that stuff you figured out from dissecting a 42RE, or is that info you collected from somewhere else? And if you got it from somewhere else, did it have any information as to whether the 727 based transmissions were the same as the 904 based ones? i.e.: does a 47RE have similar values? And thus, would a (custom? homebuilt? See, I don't even know the terminology for this stuff yet.
) controller built to run a 42RE also run a 47RE? Would it at least be adaptable?
