About Our Remanufactured 47RE Transmission
If you are looking for a rebuilt 47RE transmission, you should instead consider going with a remanufactured 47RE transmission. Even though rebuilding a transmission replaces all defective parts with new ones in the rebuild during the repair process, this can create unequal wear and tear on different parts throughout the rebuilt transmission. That is why we offer a smarter transmission replacement option, the remanufactured transmission. A remanufactured transmission means that every part is replaced with new or re-machined components, including every single part in the transmission assembly housing. Therefore, you will have the dependability and strength you need, allowing your 47RE transmission to last for 200,000 miles or more, assuming that proper maintenance is kept up to date. Here at Reman-Transmission, we pride ourselves on helping you find the best transmission for sale, including the CommandFlite and TorqueFlite models.
When you partner with us, we always place the needs of our clients ahead of our own. We inspect, clean, and rebuild the entire transmission from the inside out until it meets or exceeds every single specification set by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). An automotive professional from our team will test the performance of every part to make sure it works with the powertrain so we can provide you with the best possible end product. We will provide you with a quote on your reconditioned, refurbished, or remanufactured transmission for your new or used truck, ensuring that you have a rock solid compatible transmission when you hit the street.
Finally, a remanufactured transmission will cost less than a brand new one. We also offer free shipping to your commercial address in the United States, an unlimited mileage warranty of up to five years, exceptional customer support, and no swap core charge for up to 30 days. With access to manual and automatic transmissions from import and domestic manufacturers, we will make sure you end up with the highest quality remanufactured transmission you deserve. Whether you are looking to buy a “transmission replacement near me” for an American car or an import, contact one of our team members at Reman-Transmission today and ask to see our complete transmission catalog!

47RE Transmission Remanufacturing Process
Our 47RE transmission Upgrades
Fully remanufactured valve body includes updated throttle valve, manual valve, 4-spool switch valve, and pressure regulator valve for improved shifting, lubrication, and performance.
Modified valve body allows torque converter charge in park to increase durability and enhance gear engagements.
Fully remanufactured torque converter is tested for leaks, lockup, concentricity, and balance. Upgrades exceed OE requirements and eliminate the possibility of front seal leaks, premature bushing wear, and vibration. Diesel and heavy-duty gasoline applications include new lock-up lining.
Completely remanufactured pump provides consistent internal pressures, eliminating slippage and delayed engagement.
Bushings and machined surfaces polished to a mirror-like OE finish of 16 RA or less.
Updated High-Reverse 4-plate clutch on gasoline and diesel applications
Oversized Low/Reverse brake band strut maintains correct band clearance to eliminate drum slippage and No-Reverse condition.
Overdrive (OD) planetary assembly upgraded to a 5-pinion unit for increased durability.
Overdrive (OD) direct clutch updated to 10-plate clutch with new thrust plate for increased durability.
Overdrive (OD) clutch updated to 4-plate clutch on gasoline applications and 5-plate clutch on diesel applications for increased durability.
Custom-machined output shaft to fit both late-and early style driveshaft yokes.
New external fluid cooler provided to improve cooling and prevent fluid contamination.
All-new custom-spec bushings improve internal fluid flow control and pressures.
Every transmission is cold-and hot-tested using a proprietary dynamometer testing program that includes fully synthetic automatic transmission fluid and a filtration system.

47RE History & Information
The 47RE transmission is 4 Speed Automatic and was a collaboration between Chrysler and TorqueFlite transmissions. The original 47RE transmission as we know it today actually was first developed under the name A618, which was seen as a significant update to the cheap A519 or A518 and an upgrade over the 46RE. Unlike the 46RH or 47RH, which are controlled by hydraulics, this transmission is actually controlled electronically.
The top market for affordable 47RE transmissions involve vehicles that were expected to pull a heavy load. Vehicles that have a large payload need to have a transmission that can handle the force required. This includes Dodge Ram 2500, Dodge Ram 3500, and which may also benefit from the 48RE.
The 47RE transmission is simply a down the road descendant of the original A727 transmission. It just has an overdrive and some updated internal components: steel gears instead of aluminum, an increased number of clutch plates, and improved durability. When a transmission is combined with a Cummins 5.9L turbo-diesel or gasoline 8.0L V10 motor, the 47RE transmission performs well. The best 47RE transmission also has an internal torque rating of 450 pound-feet, which converts to approximately 610 newton-meters, such as the PowerFlite. The 47RE transmission has three drive gears, one overdrive gear, and one reverse gear.
Throughout the years, the 47RE transmission has remained consistent in its design. It does have some bells and whistles added to it depending on the model that it’s in, such as an output shaft that has an overdrive setting which connects to the back of the standard 3-speed transmission. Another major update to the original design is added lubrication potential from the expansion of available area for transmission fluid. This was added to allow the gears to stand up to the stress of heavy towing. With numerous valve body aftermarket kits and tweaks, the updated design now performs significantly better than the original, making the 47RE transmission one of the most reliable on the road today.
