Tranny Time!!!
 
Yep the time has come, all the fluid pumped out of the tranny, made a bunch of bad noise ect, tonight at 3am coming home from a friends house, pulling the car trailer. So the tranny is toast, happened under load pulling up a hill.

Anyone know of a good place to start looking for a new tranny?

Ill try and take pictures and stuff when I pull it, but as of right now not in a good mood to be wrenching on this truck again, but I probably deserve it on how I treat the truck I guess...

it was bound to happen! i know you used the crap out of it. so its not like you didnt get your moneys worth. that was the reason i upgraded.

I dont know of any place particularly. most f150 guys just get a ford replacement.

98liftedranger 05-04-2011 10:49 AM

What about a junkyard? Or a rebuild. Might be a little cheaper then a ford replacement.

bucky919 05-04-2011 11:44 AM

Ya from the looks of it I can pick one up for around a $1,000 from a junk yard, its my only way of transportation, so I need to get the thing up n running. Ill probably pull the other one tonight, im sure shes going to be a heavy bia.

I mean if that's what your into and all......

bucky919 05-04-2011 09:18 PM

Bought a tranny for $850 it will be here friday it has 36k on it and comes with a 60 day warranty.

Takeda 05-05-2011 05:30 AM

Sounds good Ramsey! Are you going to replace the TC?

Yep a new TC is going in also, need to go get a bunch of extensions from the snapon later today to be able to get to the top two tranny bolts, my buddy is going to call me when he stops at the caterpillar dealer.

The trans actually cracked, where it connects to the extension housing, makes me wonder it I did hit it last weekend on my adventure at the farm...

bucky919 05-06-2011 06:12 PM

Old tranny is pulled, other one is going in tomorrow, need to stop n get tranny fluid and the 4 nuts for the TC/flywheel

Sonic04Edge 05-06-2011 06:44 PM

Sucks that it happened, but I agree with Zach sounds like you got your money's worth.

Takeda 05-06-2011 07:30 PM

Thanks for the update Ramsey!

bucky919 05-07-2011 11:21 PM

Tranny is in and works, tomorrow ill button up all the wirring, breathers, heat shields and still have to put the front drive shaft in ect. Surprising I only have probably 15 hours into it or so, but tired of crawling around a creeper I kno that forsure. Getting new one in kind of sucked to clear the exhaust the tranny jack I had didn't tilt enough, bench pressing a tranny I wouldn't recommend it...

zabeard 05-08-2011 08:27 PM

lol yeah i wouldnt recommend it either. not a full size any way!!!

glad you got it in, thats the tough part.

Takeda 05-08-2011 08:32 PM

I bet your relieved Ramsey! Good job!

get a trans fluid temp gauge. The most common problem with the 4R75 is that the front pump seal fits loosely in the pump. When the trans overheats, the pump expands and pukes the seal out.

If you ever have to remove it again, install a new pump seal with gray RTV around the O.D. of the seal to help retain it.

98liftedranger 05-09-2011 12:59 AM

Just saw on craigslist out here in San Diego a few trannies for about $1500. I'd say you got a good deal!

O ive always watched my temp gauge, it was right at 150F when she let go. But the hardest bolt out of the whole thing is the top bolt on the starter lol.

bucky919 05-12-2011 12:23 PM

Well put her to its first test last night pulling a brand new T870, we have alot of flooding around here and my buddy got the contract to make some of the clay dikes so I went n picked up his new toy. Just the bobcat tips the scales at 13k, no issues pulling it just like every other time ive pulled that much lol.

Takeda 05-12-2011 12:34 PM

Great news Ramsey!

Need and afford are a different story right now, graduate from college tomorrow so the school loans payments are next, but after that hopefully.
