A worn valve or valve body bore can result in incorrect pressures in the transmission, which may lead to poor performance or failure of the transmission. With the proper equipment, vacuum testing is an efficient way to determine if a valve/bore is worn or to verify if a valve repair was performed correctly. It’s an easy diagnostic technique that yields repeatable, numerical results for comparison and documentation.
Sonnax vacuum test plate kit 124740-VTP for GM 6T70/75 Gen. 1 and Gen. 2, and Ford 6F50/55 units is an ideal tool for fast, easy testing. The plates and seals fit securely over the upper and lower valve body castings to seal all the critical valve body passages at once. Strategically located test ports and exhaust holes allow all key casting areas to be vacuum tested quickly by just moving the vacuum test tip.
