4L60E output shaft swap

I have searched the board and google and have come-up empty-handed on a write-up for this. I know that it would be best to buy a factory service manual, but if I can find a write-up with pics online for free, I'd prefer that route.

My 4L60E is out of a 2002 Chevy Silverado. It has the removable bellhousing with the 6 bolt output. If no one has a write-up, how about some advice? I hear you have to practically disassemble the entire trans just to replace the out put shaft... is that true on my version of the 4L60E?

yep, it has to come apart completely, pretty much all automatics are that way.
i would have a trained professional do it. if you're gonna do it yourself, get yourself an "ATSG MANUAL". can be bought at most trans shops or trans parts distributors. i sell them at work.
you're gonna need an output shaft, and a gasket set plus a new filter to do the job properly.

I got the output shaft and gasket kit from Novak. With a service manual in hand, can a half-a$$ed competent mechanic perform this without screwing anything up? I routinely swap ring and pinion sets and have done some minor engine work, so I'd consider myself middle of the road in capabilities. Whadda you think?

if you have a good set of instructions and follow them explicitly, you should be able to. i'd try to find a "builder" from a trans shop who might be able to do it as a side job.

not getting it right means a lot more work, and possible $ for more parts.

you'll probably be ok if you've done tons of diff work. I just got done doing that exact thing (watched it come apart and helped put it back together) on my 4l60e.

I swapped a 231 shaft in so I have a fixed yoke now. we used the (entire) shaft (so the wider sprocket is there) and the wider chain as well. all you need to buy as far as I know would be the bearing seal (if you have a t-case to tear apart).

and they're right, you have to completely split the case to swap the output shaft.

sorry for the laymans terms, I don't know the technical terms of all the parts in the t-case.
