trans removal, install pointers needed.

So my dad and I are having a trans built for our 97 f-250. We are getting a trans from I.T.S., a local company that sell to some places around Utah. They are gonna do a tugger kit, 3 clutch converter, upgraded clutches, 5 pinion support(steel not alum), and a bigger cooler.

We have opted to put the trans in ourselves and I am just curious if there is anything we should watch out for. We have done engine and trans swaps but not too many on autos and never a diesel. Any general pointers other then those geared towards a noob would be great. Thanks guys.

the two top bolts are a pita cause the turbo is in the way. dont over tighten the tq, dont forget to hook up the trans lines and the usual stuff. i think its just as easy as a manual. but might be a bit heaver.

also as a rule from doing this everyday on a diesel use locktite on the converter bolts as well as the bell housing bolts , small dab will do. I can't tell you how many diy guys bring there trucks in here after installing them selfs with bolts that work there way loose

Don't be under the tranny when you break it loose, they are too heavy for a standard tranny jack so just be careful. Also, you should post up some pics of that 74 Bronco

make sure you have the TC seated right, if you dont you will tear up your pump. i believe it should slide back on notches twice? the other trick is a level across the bell housing, it should sit back an 1/8 inch
