Trans pan

ok so i have a 96 f250 4x2 with a reading body on it. im going to be doing a trans service on it soon. going to do a 6.0l cooler and all new lines as well as pan gasket, filter, and fluid.

if i remeber right the e40d 4x2 has a shallow pan. and the 4x4 had a bigger pan and a taller filter. is the 4r100 the same pattern and depths ???

reason i ask is my pan the previous owner brazed a bung and plug onto the botton of the pan and i think that may be part of my leak. and i have a 4r100 4x4 trans sitting in the corner of the shop that i could swap pans. if not i can get a new 4x4 e40d pan for -$30 if i can just swap the filters?

its just a shop truck use it once or twice a week at most and dont tow ofter but i do have quite a bit of tools loaded into the body. im dont really wanting to dump an extra $200+ into a pan but if i can swap one and have a little larger capacity im sure it will help a little with cooling ??

As far as I know yes. The pattern will be the same and I am almost certain that you can run the 4x4 pan and matching filter. As a mater of fact my 2wd truck has a 4x4 trans in it (tail shaft/housing converted). So yeah that will work fine for ya

Fluid capacity for cooling is a myth. It takes longer to heat up more fluid but it also holds heat longer. As far as a cooler goes I would reccomend a tru cool 47391. I run it and its flawless. Has never let the trans go over 165 with 16k on tow

i got a good deal on a new 31 row 6.0l cooler, should nbe here later in the week.

i think i may just get a new 4x4 pan filter and gasket. and leave my 4r100 intact for another project.
