Ok, Im getting closer to putting the OD tranny(2wd) in my truck and Im trying to get as much info as I can on the procedure so that there will be fewer surprises. I called up advanced adapters and know the output shaft(4wd) and called trans shop about getting it put into the trans. I'll also be getting the largest stacked plate cooler I can. What I really want to know is how do I go about removing the trans/t-case from my truck. I have a chiltons manual and it goes over the procedure in there. It says to remove all the stuff from the trans and and discon. the strut rod, and remove the crossmember. Then unbolt the t-case from the frame bracket and unbolt the trans from the engine. Is there anything important Its missing or anything that I sould expect trouble from? Also, how would I go about telling if the 700 has a lockup converter and if it does is there anything that I will need to get to disable it?
