    A friend of mine just took an F250 460 4x4 xcab long bed to settle a bad dept. It needs a transmission, and he needs money for the rent. So I may end up with it...

    What trans does this thing use? Havn't played with Fords in years, have no idea about anything, never liked 'em, even from the last picture! :eek1:
    It's not too rusty, long bed, silver and purple. Help?

    Pix soon...

    Need to know more about the truck... Auto's were C6 up until '88 and E4OD from '89 on. 4 spd was used 'till 85 or 86 then they switched to a ZF 5 spd.

    Sorry, it's an auto, 4 speed, I guess. Gas guzzling 460s hardly light my fire, so I passed on the offer, but the phone rang, twice, so I guess I'm up at bat... saw a similar truck at the shop, the trans had a loooong pan...

    E4OD is the most likely culprit... not cheap to work on, and a pain in the ass to rebuild yourself. I replaced one 4 times in an '89 F350 in about a year span. First a used tranny only to find I was given the wrong year tranny, exchanged it at the wrecking yard for the correct one they were supposed to give me... that lasted about a year. Then rebuilt it myself, lasted a week... rebuilt it myself a second time (this time replacing the electronic solenoid packs as recomended by a tranny repair shop). That lasted close to a year and started to go again. I told my ex to sell it before it dropped completely at that point. Still sold the truck for more than we paid to start but it wasn't worth the effort to keep it on the road.

    Thanks, just checked eBay, $1200 is the cheapest, delivered, plus installation, $350 locally, but the guy with the truck that needs the loan has a shop, but HE wants to fix and profit off the truck, sheesh...
