Transmission swap question.
I'm putting a transmission from a 2000 E350 in my truck and there are some differences at the back end I need help with. Main problem is the outside diameter of the truck driveshaft is bigger than that on the van. the inside diameter and the splines all fit fine. So just swap extension housings right? wrong.
The van uses the mechanical speedo and the truck has the sensor style. So the output shafts are totally different, meaning i can't just take the stuff off one to make the other work without changing the whole output shaft....
So my question is, how hard would it be to swap the output shafts? My other option is to mix match the truck and van driveshafts but i'd rather use the heavier shaft from the truck.
God I wish I could just afford a BTS swap.
