The A-904 and A-727, debuting in 1960 and 1962, respectively, are
3-speed automatic Chrysler TorqueFlite Transmissions. In Mopar circles,
they have become synonymous with strength, durability, and performance.
In fact, 43 years after its first application, A-904s were still found
in the Jeep lineup!
TorqueFlites are known for their dependability, but many have endured a
tremendous amount of abuse over 50-plus years when hooked up to V-8
Mopar powerplants. There is little doubt that some of these automatics
could be prone to failure, or at least need a thorough rebuild. Tom Hand
shares his decades of experience rebuilding TorqueFlite transmissions
with chapters dedicated to troubleshooting, disassembly and reassembly,
performance modifications, post-installation procedures, and the most
thorough source guide offered in print, ever.
Hand walks you through the TorqueFlite rebuild with color photos
showcasing step-by-step procedures with highly detailed, easy-to-follow
text. This book will keep money in your pocket and add experience to
your résumé, but more important, it will help you get your Mopar back on

Tom Hand has been reworking TorqueFlites since 1978. Hand has built,
raced, and written about TorqueFlites and was fortunate to have grown up
in a drag racing family as the eldest son of the famed Pontiac expert
Jim Hand. Because of the family’s Pontiac connections, he also has

Toss in the occasional Ford C4 and C6 transmissions and Tom was
fortunate to have learned about and worked on the best.
