Measure large spool diameter on OE switch valve as shown here to verify which Sonnax part will fit the unit being repaired. Some Chrysler switch valves measure .420” dia. and others .453” dia. Another third version found in "late" anodized valve bodies have a .453" dia. but with a narrower spool and incorporates an ID groove. Sonnax offers repairs for all three sizes.

These oversized valve kits and their associated tool kits are still available. However, for improved reaming experience, results, and ease of use, it is recommended that oversized valve kit 92835-32K and associated tool kit F-92835-TL32 be used instead.
Common complaints with Chrysler 41TE, 42LE, 42RLE, 45RFE, 545RFE and 68RFE transmissions include erratic or no torque converter clutch control, second gear starts and/or low/Reverse switch code. These can be caused by the solenoid switch valve plugs cocking in the bore and hanging up. Another cause of these complaints can be bore wear at the switch valves due to the cocking action and/or continuous oscillation of the plugs. For valve bodies with excessive wear, use Sonnax oversized solenoid switch valve plug kit 92835-18K. When using this oversized kit, Sonnax offers two ways to ream the bore: a stand-alone bench reamer 92835-RM (not compatible with 62TE) or tool kit F-92835-TL18 that requires the use of the VB-FIX.
Associated tool 92835-RM is not compatible with 62TE.
