              TorqueFlites are known for their dependability, but many have endured a tremendous amount of abuse over 50-plus years when hooked up to V8 Mopar powerplants.. There is little doubt that some of these automatics could be prone to failure, or at least need a thorough rebuild. Tom Hand shares his decades of experience rebuilding TorqueFlite transmissions with chapters dedicated to troubleshooting, disassembly, reassembly, performance modifications, post-installation procedures, and the most thorough source guide ever offered in print.
