Got my 5.4L 4r70w, some ?'s
I got my 4R70W from Greenleaf in my garage. I was looking it over and it appears pretty clean. It is from a 99 F150, with 5.4L motor. I am going to be swappin on a 99-up car valve body, and putting on a 1-3 ohm TCC solenoid (93 Mark VIII). Anyway, the rubber tailshaft seal looks like it has a few tears in it. Is it necessary to replace that?
Also, I flipped it over to pull off the valve body, and it poured out a bunch of fluid, I am assuming that is normal, just want to make sure everything is ok. The fluid looked like it was in good condition. The trans was listed as only having 1000 miles.
My final question is regarding a forced lube tailshaft mod. Is there a special tool required to pull the bushing out of the tail, then push it back in? I have a friend that may be able to get me some Ford tools, so was wondering what I would need.
Thanks for the good updates from everyone recently. Hopefully I will have one soon myself. I am also getting ready to throw a 3200 rpm Street Edge converter in with this.
