Changing fluid and filter

I thought I'd help out. Did google search and searched some other Ford sites. Notta, zip, zero.

I am sure that there has to be something floating around.

I know I have read somewhere about putting in a drain plug while you have the pan off. Someone will come along with the info.

This will cost more but have you considered going to a shop that has a transmission service machine? It will flush all of the old fluid out of the lines and TC and put in the synthetic tranny fluid and put in a new filter.

Also, just some info I found:

A couple of hundred, maybe higher. . It cost me 100.00 a few years ago and that was just for conventional fluid. Took about 10 - 15 minutes and it was done.

Normally, I like to do my own maintenance, but it was well worth it that time to have someone else do it.

Nope. I am trying to decide what to do:
A) Put money into it

or

B) Get something newer.

I got an F150 that I driving right now. Here's an idea, how hard would it be to put the 7.3L in the F-150? What would I have to do to beef up the the front end to support the weight of the engine?

Sorry for the hijack Nix, I'll myself.
