New guy with a dead transmission.
I've got an '99 I just picked with an NADP tranny the 4R100 I guess. My issue, On the drive home, the rear u-joint on the driveshaft broke and the weight of the flopping driveshaft at highway speed cracked the transmission case above the pan.
I guess first of all, this is suposed to be some high-end transmission, would it be likely that everything is fine inside? A new case and away we go? what's likely to be broken?
I've been looking into manual conversions, but this forum layout isn't like what I'm used to and I'm having issue's finding the info I'm after.
The S5-47 available in 1996 is the one I want correct? Must be from a diesel, and would save headaches to get the T-case along with it?
Will I have wiring issue or anything with a 96+ tranny in a 99 truck?
I've read both, that I need the other computer, and that a chip can override the automatic functions of the computer so what I have is fine.... which is right?
Obviously pedals, and clutch, flywheel, master/slave
Does the floor need to be cut for the zf5 like it does with a zf6?
What about the Speedo? Odometer?
I found a swap on here that was close, but it was a Zf6 and incomplete as the reverse lights and all that don't work. I would need everything to work when I'm done.
I hate asking such major questions while being such a new member, I will keep searching too but I'm hoping to get pointed in the right direction.
Thanks in advance!
