manual to auto conversion?
First off, i did search the forum prior to post.
ok, most people appear to Want a manual....
however i bought a 99 f-250 today with a 6spd manual, the tranny doesn't shift in to gear, and i have never had a diesel (had a '95 and a '92 ford diesels, 5spd's) that i enjoyed shifting....they've always shifted poorly in my opinion, oh and i'm lazy.
So, seeing as how my tranny needs some love, i'm thinking i might swap to an automatic. i'm figuring i need:
auto trans, torque converter, flywheel, auto pcm, auto brake pedal (optional), and an auto steering column. aside from those things, am i missing anything, seems like it would be a fairly straightforward swap...primarily seeing if i missed anything and hoping someone else out there has done the swap that can give me some tips.
