What can be done with a TH200 transmission to make it more durable?

It's working okay. I just learned that the 200r4 that I bought off eBay 14 yrs ago is actually a th200. I haven't drove it on highway much, mostly in town. I've been doing the body work on it. I recently read that putting in a shift kit and a deep aluminum pan would make it better than a th350 or th400. I've read this in 2 sites, just want others opinions. Thanks for replying.

Not good info, that trans is very weak! Notorious for reverse gear failures and under-engineered for lower power engines.

Good plan, try not to engage reverse at high idle.

Where does one pick up the lockup wires for the TH200c?

What is a TH200R4? A 200 was a 3 speed. trans. A 700 was a 700R4 and the first 3 speed + overdrive.
