        Actually that's from AT. Those THM700's are tough!

          I'm moving to St. Petersburg (2nd biggest city in Russia, its located near Finland) in January. Looks like Ty stays here in Novosibirsk till late spring at least I'll miss him.

            Okay, so. Back to work.

            Back in December my tranny died, and I didn't have any time to fix it, or even drop it and search for damage. In January I moved to St. Petersburg, and left crippled Ty in my father's garage Initial plan was to fly back home in May, and drive Ty for 2000 miles to the place I live now. Well, now its impossible.
            I was thinking of buying a rebuild kit, new pump etc, and then fly and fix it, but that's risky. I don't know what's wrong, and if there are some stripped splines inside I won't be able to do anything. I'm kinda low on money right now, that's also a factor. That's why I'm buying generic 700r4, and putting it there as is.
            It should last while I do my bodywork and TC, and then I'll bring old tranny to SPb and rebuild it.

            Generic 700r4 costs about $700 here. I can get a Ty 700r4 for $900, but I'm not sure I will. Generic one would be more reliable, I guess...

              The internals are the same apart from the valve body and the boost valve and pressure relief spring and possibly a couple of other minor differences. If you swap valve bodies (after cleaning the damaged one) then you should be ok but you'll need to be careful as the generic ones are not more reliable than a specific SyTy trans.

              A Ty specific trans in Russia? I don't believe it. They are rare in the US, nevermind Russia.

              I'll post the link to a thread I started. I swapped a stock 700R4 for a friend and it needs work. You won't be able to drive it like a proper Typhoon until that is fixed.

              Good to see you're back

                Yeah, I know the drill. But I don't have a turbo yet, so any tranny will hold.

                Yeah, Ty specific trans Red/grey '92 Ty is being dismantled now in Moscow, I already bought some stuff off it. They are also selling the transmission, but I don't want to buy it. Too much abuse, I don't know whether it's been taken care of, so... Its risky.
                Here is a link with some pics.

                • Wow, I am amazed how far these have travelled. Why is it being parted? Shame

                  Buy the turbo? Lots of good stuff on there esp cladding.

                  Can you find the VIN to add that Ty to the Graveyard?

                  RIP '92

                    They needed parts for another Typhoon, owner wasn't happy with reliability, body is rusted, etc. Same problems all over the world.

                    I wish I could print those dollar bills

                    I will try to get a VIN.

                              How in the hell did you find that??????????

                              Hope Dmitry doesn't mind me updating - he bought a used trans and went back to Novosibirsk from St Petersburg (1500km) and had a shop install it, complete with tow fees etc. but the replacement didn't work so he's out $1500 and is really fed up with the hassles of the truck. He has used the words "fire" and "crush" but I hope he's not serious.

                              I wish there was some international SyTy charity to help international owners out. I cannot imagine how hard it is to get parts etc in Russia for a decent price, if you can even get them at all. I've been there, done that and it kills us.

                              Dmitry - keep at it man - loving your resolve.
