1997 ford f350 7.3 E4OD

hey i need some help figuring out what i need for my truck. my tranny is shot and i'm planning on rebuilding it myself, which will be an adventure cuz i've not done shit like this before. but until i get that done, imma throw a tranny off of craigslist, or here, in my truck. there are so many differences in E4OD's i guess, and i need to know what the differences are and what will and wont work... any help would be nice
thanks -derek

Go to Yahoo groups and search AOD there are some really smart people on there.

Good Luck,

Tim

The diesel E4OD case is different than the gasser. 2wd and 4wd are the same cases. The 2wd uses an E-brake tailhousing in place of the transfer case.

I think as long as you get one for a diesel or a 460 it should work, I know that all the parts in a e4od are the same so you can put the heavy duty parts in a gasser tranny,
