Tranny shop called today.

Well we figured out why the tranny went South in the 97 4x4 I just bought. The previous owner that was driving it did not hear the front main bearing go out. Which slung itself apart then broke the case. Which in turn drained out all of the fluid. Just as my luck would have it the shop looked and can not find a replacement case and the cost of the tranny rebuild went up another 510 bucks the cost of a new case from Ford. And the performance part of this, I am putting a SB Con OFE clutch back in it. JJ

look around for a core. I've seen core's on craigslist for as low as $50. should be an E4OD. Not too uncommon of a trans.

That sounds more like a DMFW failure than leading to the front main bearing failure to me.
