    Hey Folks,

    I was wondering if a manual valve body (727) without low-band apply can be modified to apply low band? Just curious as I am kicking around some options for winter projects.

    Thanks in advance to the resident FABO Torqueflite gurus!

    John Cope of CRT used to do the mods to the valve bodys before he started custom making his own.

    I emailed John Cope many years ago about your exact same question. He replied back and said ....no.
