I do have one question through pertaining to the gaskets.One of the gaskets F7AZ-7C155-AA was not in the system. The number changed up to 1L3P-7C155-AB, which I bought. Do you think that will be a problem? If a Ford part number changes up, the part should be the same though, right?
Not necessarilly Swanny... see below:

I'm holding the 2 different gaskets in my hand - I'm told it won't work by local Parts Guru & I believe him:
7D100AB is for 2001 up THRU ??? 4r70w VB
only - DEFINITELY not for 2000 & older 4r70w VB
- Below is pic of
7D100AB showing one of the areas of difference where the small Pac Man Plate is deleted in 2001+ VB
& Casting change deleted 2-3 Capacity Modulator Valve in corner of 2001+ VB
... they added hole to Vent the void in 2001+ Casting - There are other changes around Main Regulator, ETC... as compared to PRE 2000 VB
Gasket & probably more importantly the various PRE 2000 Seperator Plates & VB
Castings & all the internal VB
sub-assembly changes over the years.

SO>>> 7D100EA is good for 2000 & at least as far back as 96 4r70w VB
but you'll want to verify that it's good for 95 - I think you'll find that it is.
They do ask for VB
casting number sometimes as there are parts overlaps between Tranny years - Seems like there was VB
Casting change in 96 as well as Tranny casting - Good stuff on casting changes here:
You oughta change the Top Gasket & the VB
to Tranny Gasket also & Torque all carefully - Teeny VB
Filter & VB
Screen + a 96+ Pan.
You have a Stock / Original 95 Tranny & VB
right ??? - Frankly a 95/96 Tranny needs EVERYTHING upgraded so... ??? - VB
& Tranny could badly use some Sonnax parts & Hard Parts if you insist on beating an old horse:
