Is a 6.0 Converter a direct bolt in for a 4R100?

Can anyone tell me what you have to do to install a 6.0 converter in a 7.3 with a 4R100? Is it a direct fit, or do you have to modify anything? Just curious... I've heard talk about using a 6.0 flywheel and grinding it for a 6.4 converter, but I'm not real interested in that.

We have a truck here that we are getting ready to put a converter in and the place where we get our converters is out of stock for the 4R100. BUT they do have the 6.0 converters in stock.

Thanks guys!

It is not a direct bolt in. I have a 6L converter that Hallas modified, but I do not remember how it was done.

There's a adapter plate of sorts but they can be made to work & are a good unit for the money.

Oh okay I wasn't sure, haven't gotten to look at one being installed. I know it's not a direct bolt on.

From my under standing the converter is deeper than the 7.3 one. So some guys were using a spacer plate between the bellhousing and the engine to make up the difference. I think the bolt pattern is off too if my memory serves me correct.

I think they do make adapter plates also Cat, but mine was done on the converter somehow I think. I might need to find that out.

The bolt pattern is the same.

I am not totaly positive on this but I think all converters are the same if you get them from ford except the 6.0 is thicker so it makes it hard to use on a 7.3. The 4r converters should have all of the same updates as the 6.0's.

You have to drill two new mounting holes to make it work. Call John Wood he can tell you what you need to do
