New trans break in

Is there a procedure for breaking in a new trans? Mine took a dump on me and I just ordered a new one. What, if anything do I need to do to break this in after I install it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

A good fat burnout is the best way to break in tranny's.

This guy; eBay Motors: FORD DIESEL E4OD/E40D/4R100/4R1OO REBUILT TRANSMISSION (item 180155342093 end time Sep-11-07 23:01:23 PDT)

I was a little unsure about getting this one but he has great feedback and I spoke with the guy on the phone. Right now I just don't have the money to go with a top brand. But with a 2 year unlimited mile warranty, and thier claim of this trans being able to handle the 400 or so HP I plan to put out, I felt like I could'nt go wrong. He actually told me 600+ HP, but I really have a hard time believing it. I will let everyone know how I make out when I get it in. It will be getting shipped from FL to NJ on Wednesday.

The trans shop where mine was rebuilt said that I can tow almost right away. He said that all you have to do is make sure that all your clutches are soaked good enough. about 50 miles.

Since he is standing behind his work, I'll listen.

Me too. I figure it has to at least be as good as a stock rebuild. The guy I spoke with tells me they rebuild 50-60 units a week.

According to this company, they also run these on the dyno for an hour before shipping. I'm sure this helps.
