A Fuel Efficient Automatic Four-Speed Transmission for Light Trucks 811285

This new overdrive unit features wide ratio gearing with 4-speeds and reverse from 2 planetary gear sets, a cpnverterclutch assembly, a variable capacity oil pump and extensive use of aluminum. Unique construction of several components produces a compact transmission that weighs only two pounds more than the 3-speed unit it replaces.
