Re: 4r100 aftermarket parts?

You would be able to see if a shift kit was installed if you knew what the stock plates looked like to compare. A Valve body may be stamped by the manufacturer but a BTS valve body is just the stock one with some modifications. Any of the internals you would need to disassemble the tranny to see. you can see the bottom of the TC from the inspection panel on the bottom of the transmission. You may or may not be able to tell by looking at the bottom.

Internals? No real way.

Take a pic of the converter and post it. You can pull the front VB and break it down. Take a pic of the parts and measure the shims as well. If there is a separator plate between the trans and VB, take a pic of it as well...

He said that the tranny only has about 9k on it before the truck was totaled. By the looks of it the tranny was rebuilt recently. The aluminium on it is still shiney and the torrque converter also looks brand new. I have identified the torque converter to be a transtar recon series ultra low stall multi disc unit.

Recon makes a good stock replacement for stock trucks.

Also, why the phuck would you want a ultra low stall converter on a powerstroke?

Re: 4r100 aftermarket parts?

dirk,
i havent dine anything with the tranny yet, but as far as the torque converter here is the some info that i copied from the transtar website:
6 STUD: West part # FM64RX-S3; East part # FM-94HD-S3

Until now, transmission professionals have had to choose between either a stamped front cover with a multi disc, or a billet cover with a single disc. Additionally, a multi disc unit has not even been available in a 4 stud configuration.

These new converters combine those benefits, and provide a billet front cover with a multiple disc clutch.

Combined with a very low stall impeller, these torque converters provide the most durable and efficient transfer of power in high torque and heavily loaded applications.

NOTE: These are very low stall units, approx 250 rpm lower than the FM64R / FM-94! They may not be suitable for "stock" applications. These are best suited for vehicles that have engine modifications that result in increased torque output.
Unit Specifications
Trans Type: E4OD / 4R100
Overall Diameter: 12.8"
Mounting Studs: 4 or 6 each, depending on part number
Bolt Circle: 11.37" diameter
Type of Unit: Multiple disc clutch
Pilot Diameter: 1.375"
Turbine Splines: 31 spline
Overall Height: 6.960"
Hub Diameter: 1.997", flats
