bad e4od. swap to zf5
Ok so heres my story. Im new here, just bought my first diesel. Had plenty of trucks but all gassers. Im condemning the e4 and am going to go with a manual but I want to understand the issue the e4 is having
So the truck I just bought is a 95 psd with an e4od. He said it needed a new front seal in the tranny and it was spewing fluid out of the bell housing (makes sense). So I loaded up my tools, drove 4hrs, spent all day pulling the tranny out in a church parking lot to replace the seal, all was good drove decent, rented a tow dolly to tow my ranger back, got 45miles and it started spewing fluid at an ungodly rate so I put it on the tow dolly. After I got it back it was parked for about a week and I started it and no spewing! Wtf? Any ideas? Im not keeping the tranny in it I just want to understand whats going on.
Second part I found a 93 idi with a 5spd and I am wanting to know if I will have any issues putting that 5spd in my psd. I can pick up the whole truck for 800 so I want to move on it but dont want to buy it if the only reason im buying wont work out. Will that flywheel bolt to my crank? Is the input shaft correct? I know the bell housing bolt patterns are the same
Thanks in advance. I tried searching but couldnt find much to answer my exact question other than the bell housings.
