E4OD Transmission Change

I was hopping someone could help me out whit this...I have a 1997 F-350 powerstroke. I'm not sure why or what happened but the trany kept slipping out of O/D and then banging int to gear again. Then it just leaked trany fluid all over my driveway ( and lots of it). It looked like it was comming from the side of the pan by the seal. I tried to do a cheap repair by changing the fluid and filter and put on a new gasket. That seam to work for a while. but now it is slipping more and more. I think it is toast. I have found a almost new trany (E4OD-4100 or 4R100 not sure which on it is ) from an E350. Would that fit into my truck with no problems.

Thanks for you help

Is your truck 2wd or 4wd?? As Ol Blue said the tail shaft can be changed but its not worth it. You have to completely disassemble the transmission. If your truck is a 2WD then it will bolt right up. Not sure about the drive shaft length though...???

It should bolt up fine for you... A little tip though, before you remove the bottom bolts, drop the cross member and remove the top bolts first. Then just put the cross member back in with only 1 bolt and remove the bottoms... Makes sliding the trans out straight a lot easier and safer if you are doing it on the ground...
