New to board and 7.3L ownership. trans question
My transmission is starting to act up, and I'll probably need a rebuilt one, or just simply another one. Some mechanics say my problem is electrical and in the dash somewhere, some say its in the transmission. its been a major headache.
I have a 2000 f250 4x4 extended cab 6 3/4 bed 7.3L automatic. I normally use it as a daily drive and occasional tow for 7000lb load.
I haven't installed a transmission before, but i'll have time this summer and people to help.
I found a decent price on a rebuilt 4r100 out of town, but the guy hasn't gotten back to me yet with any details (transfer case, torque converter, ...) other than it ha a wiring harness.
I also found a local f250 that has a wrecked side and needs engine work, but he says the transmission is good. It is a 2001 f250 2wd extended cab long bed 5.4 triton v8 automatic. I understand its the same basic transmission, but i've got 4wd and the 7.3L.
My main question is this: Will these just mesh right in with my transfer case and stock driveshaft or will i have to invest serious cash in some other components?
Thanks to all that help me out.
