In Ford 6F50, 6F55 and GM Gen. 1 6T70 and 6T75 units, AFL/solenoid pressure regulator bore wear results in low pressure at the shift and control solenoid valve assembly. The OE valve has a large reaction area and is highly affected by side-loading which wears the valve body bore. As the bore wear increases, oil pressure is reduced to the shift solenoids, which causes solenoid and ratio codes. This also results in low line pressure.
Installing Sonnax AFL/solenoid pressure regulator valve kit 124740-32K renews the hydraulic integrity of this circuit, restoring normal shift operation and feel. This drop-in, sleeve/valve assembly provides a new and unworn bore for hydraulic sealing of the valve while the sleeve seals off existing moderate bore wear to prevent fluid loss. A new spring to provide correct limit pressure with the sleeve/valve assembly is also provided.
Sonnax valve body layouts provide a detailed overview of individual units making it quick and easy to determine what’s available for the specific valve body you’re working on. See all Sonnax valve body layouts.
Vacuum testing at the port(s) indicated fails to hold the recommended minimum in-Hg, or if wear is visually detected.
Note: Due to the design changes on the Sonnax sleeve and valve, post-install vacuum testing at the inboard port is not a valid sealing test.
