Ouch! 3200 bucks! That's cheaper than rebuilding an auto though, and MUCH cooler. I have a few more expenses I guess, since I have the 6.0. They did some goofy crap with an adapter plate on the back of the engine, where the adapter is different from the auto to manual
. I think my best option is to buy a wrecked one, and use the parts I needs from it, then part the rest out. All in due time, at least 10 years, because I'm sure that when we have kids, my money will be going to doctors and diapers
So, you bought all the parts from Ford except the tranny and clutch kit? And the tranny hump, you just cut it out, then beat it back with a hammer and siliconed it up? Thanks for your help
I have my dream truck, except the manual, but that can be done
