1997 F-350 XL transmission

So my buddy is trying to convince me that his uncles 97 f350 with the 7.3 has a 4 speed. Has anyone ever heard of this? I think he's full of #### to be honest.

Thanks but it was a manual. Not an auto

Re: 1997 F-350 XL transmission

The manual transmission in a '97 diesel was a five speed. Many people call it a four speed because one of the ratios is a creeper gear. Some call it a four speed because one of the ratios is an overdrive. I say it has five distinct ratios, so it's a five speed.
