I'll start here first, the #'s on it are Suffix Code-2FTM098H & casting #'s 8676358 also MD8. What I have found is its a 1992 GM trans being its a 4L60 (1990-1992)& the 700R4 is (1982-1990) I think.
My questions are all about the "lockup" part of it, what do I need to have the Lockup work for me since it is in a 68 C10 SBC being it has No Computer to the truck if that matters for any electronics or solenoids to work properly if that also matters. How would one (me) hookup or connect it to its Lockup feature? I cant tell you anything about the trans cause it was already in the truck when bought. I have read that you can hookup a pull switch to lock the trans in gear but I have also read that the or this trans already by its self locks up? I know a mouth full for a newbie but was taught to ask a question the best way you can to get the answer you seek. thanks in advance for any help given.

Welcome to CT. The tcc feature is activated electronically. There are several ways to do this. Monster trans has a kit to accomplish this, as do other specialty companies.

I am not following you on the "electronically" activation feature. This trans is a 700R4/4L60 Not a 4L60"E" computer controlled trans hence the "E" on the 4L60E part. What is the electronic device and where is it located in or on the trans that activates the feature and does it need a computer to work or does it need only 12 volts to work?

I'll pass on Any Thing to do with monster trans,I have read too many bad reports about them from Other Forums members.

This trans is Stock and will remain Stock, What is used (parts) for the Stock way the trans does its thing in OD? Does this trans Need a Computer to hookup into OD?

If you feel you are electrically challenged and don't mind having the lockup work only in 4th gear (which is NOT the factory setup), you can use any of the aftermarket lockup kits. They will all "work", if installed according to the instructions supplied with them.

If you are electrically confident, and the trans is unmodified, you can get the lockup working for a lot less money than the kits cost. All you need are a brake switch, a manual switch, wire, and the terminals needed to make the necessary connections.

Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.

I answered by email, and as I said there, you shouldn't need the relay.
