91 IDI Auto tranny troubles???

Just bought a 1991 F-350 cew cab single wheel 4x4 truck, with 138-k miles. 7.3L IDI, automatic overdrive and BONE STOCK other than oversized tires and wheels. (315x75R16's)

Tranny seems slow going into reverse (like 3 to 5 seconds) and sometimes slow going into drive, while driving it seems a little funny to me going into OD sometime as well. Fluid looks good and has no smell to it. Is this something common with the IDI's or do I need to have it checked out???

The E4ODs do develop some slop between gears over time, but 3-5secs. don't sound right. Think maybe something's having a hard time engaging, like a clutch band?
