School me on the 4r100

Long story short, my trans has a busted case. A BTS is on my wish list, but aint gonna happen anytime soon.

What I need to know, what are the differences between a gas & diesel 4r100?

Will a V-10 trans hold up behind a 7.3?

Will the cases interchange (gas/diesel)? (Would I be able to put the guts from my existing trans into a 5.4 case?)

What year range can I use, anything from 99-04 would be ok? I have seen some listed on e-vil-bay, but they only list 01-04 trucks.

It's my understanding that a 4x2 trans can be converted to a 4x4 trans by changing out the output shaft and tailhousing. Is this correct?

i don't do any towing or heavy hauling, and my rig is basically stock, so I don't need bulletproof at this point. I just want to get it back on the road and get by for a year or two while I save up for a BTS.

Any other input would also be appreciated.

In theory it should, but we will never know because a V10 trans won't bolt to a 7.3L

Ye, you can put you guts into a 5.4L case. It would make a strong trans for a 5.4L or 6.8L, but won't bolt to a 7.3L.

Diesel 4R100s were made from '99 to '03. In '04 the only 4R100s made were for gas engines.

That is correct. All you need to do to change the output shaft is to take EVERYTHING out of the trans, install the 4x4 output shaft, and rebuild the transmission.

Good to know. Thanks.

I had been under the impression that they (the gas trans.) would bolt up to the 7.3, they would just be a grenade waiting to blow at the first blip of the throttle.
