Bearing repair for 4L60E Bearing repair for 4L60E
The 4L60E in the 2002 and newer GM 4.2 Envoy with the VJCX 278mm torque converter has been coming to torque converter shops on a more regular basis. One of the points of failure has been the bearing surface on the aluminum stator. Unfortunately, there is not a replaceable stator cap. The stator cap and stator are molded together. The good news, with a little work you can salvage the stator by machining the stator to accept the larger GM 298mm bearing. Be careful to make sure that your overall height stays the same.
