I was introduced to tranny rebuilds in my diesel truck circles. the 4r100 Ford put behind the 7.3 had major issues with the coast clutch ... it spawned a tranny rebuild industry just for those 99.5-03.5 trucks. The one we used was a guy in Leadville Arkansas. Brian Thompson. He used a TC from a T400 then modified it from there, special sauce or two ... reassembled and that tranny is good forever even behind a chipped/breathing 7.3 powerstroke turbo diesel.

I'm hoping for just over 400 ft/lbs and HP ... so perhaps my 700r4 selection isn't a good one???

Thanks Big Dave
