I want to update the Transmission Section in the Technical Library in the coming month(s).

The pages are old and I'm not sure how accurate the info is anymore. If you have ANY suggestions as to what should be added, changed or deleted from the page, please post them here. This includes part numbers, names of manufacturers, links, custom modifications, know problems or even cheap tricks.

Tranny Swaps -

I'm looking for as much info as I can get about transmission swaps. If you've performed a tranny swap or have information on a swap, please post up.

Thanks.

Are you adding any of the things in the submitted section on The forums?

There seems to be interest in the bushing write-up I did. Other than that I'm not sure.

That page is done and waiting to get uploaded in the online mag here in about a week. By the way, what manual tranny is that for? I know people will be emailing me asking me if it will work on their xxxxx tranny.

Jim,
If interested, i could write up a tech page/FAQ on the A4LD, 4R44E/5R55E auto trannys. A lot of questions I see here are very common issues.

I can also offer a write up on a 98+ Ranger 4x4 M5OD swap. Just let me know if you need me to do it, I'd be glad to write it up in a concise format.

I'd like to see a writeup on swapping a M50D into an '83-'84 4X4 Ranger. Mainly a list of parts and changes.

I'll take any write ups you guys want to submit. Transmissions are topics that are frequently searched on this website. We can never have too much info.

None at all.
I'm interested in upgrading my turbo 2.5L's 4r44e to a 4.0L 5r55e.I've been told it can be done but I'm unsure how to mate it to my 2.5L plus wiring and internal problems.I don't think my eec can control a 5 speed trans.

Jim I started the write up in the Submission section. I hope to have it completed by the end of the weekend.

I didn't get quite as many pictures during the actual transmission swap, but I will be as descriptive as possible.

I'm doing an FM 146 - M5OD this week. Long as I can get ahold of a camera I'll do one as well. Otherwise I'll just do a text after its all said and done.
