5R110 Swap........

Just replaced mine myself. It was not too bad at all, everything is just heavy. I work at a shop so it was in the air and I had a trans jack--without these I would hate to try it in the driveway. I got a Ford factory replacement trans with a 3 year warranty and put a Banks tq. conv. in it. I like knowing I have a warranty to fall back on now to. The only trick I found is you have to have a starter bump switch/ button to roll the engine over so you can get to the tq. conv. nuts. Without that it is impossible to turn the engine over. Also the Ford trans comes with a new trans cooler. They do this because you can effectively flush the cooler out. Make sure you flush all the circuits/ branches of the trans cooling lines--a lot of metal gets distributed all through them, assuming you have had a trans failure. Good luck.

Thanks for your advice chris... We got it done, only real problem we had was getting the truck high enough to actually get the trans in an out from under it... I flushed the cooler lines with brake cleaner and air.... I hope that was sufficient... It has held up well for a couple weeks now.. I plan to change the fluid and filters in another couple hundred miles.... Do you think that's necessary?
