The foreword by George W. Griffith, general manager of the Hydramatic division of General motors says it best “This manual explains the theory and operation of the 440-T4 automatic transaxle. The detailed text and color illustrations will instruct the reader in the mechanical power flow and hydraulic systems of this unit.
This fully automatic 4-speed (overdrive) front wheel drive transaxle has been designed to meet the needs of today’s high tech, computer controlled engines.”
This transaxle was fitted to the A, B, C, and H body cars. Later it was fitted to the N and J series cars. This is the same transmission today in the cars, It has been converted to full electronic control with a new valve body with solenoids enabling PCM (OBD II) control. When this transmission went full electronic control it was renamed the 4T60E.
This book should be accompanied by the 440-T4 updated hydraulics book.
