Been sittin up

Tranny went out about 6 months ago. I took the tranny out with the intentions of having it rebuilt right away but ran into financial difficulties. So now with my tax money im going to get it rebuilt and put it back on the road.

So the truck has sat and not run in 6 months. What problems can I expect.

Also the shop that I found to rebuild the tranny is very reputable with the 4r100 and they build them for lifted trucks like mine. What TC should I go with?

I am changing my trans cooler also. Is the best bet to go with a 6.0 new from Ford?

I would be worried about what shape the fuel is in before you go running the truck.

6 months? Not terrible. I know it's late but:
Fill it up the rest of the way with new diesel, put in some additive, make sure you got something to jump it if needed, and I'd let it get warmish before driving hard, drive it warm the rest of the way, then drive it around hard.

Glad you mentioned brakes; might wanna pull and grease the slide pins. They're bad to begin with.

Great, the guy who rebuilt it has done alot of other lifted fords here and put red line clutches in it, a recon single disk billet converter and a shift kit in it....I love it so far. He has been in business since 1974. Shifts smooth under normal driving, when i get on it, it shifts firm which is good.

Truck looks in great shape... does it see sand often?
