Question for Mark Kovalsky

Hi Mark Just put new tunes in my pickup. After driving it a couple hundred miles a code showed for my transmission its code P1754 CCS electrical fault. It never showed this code with TS tunes or with no tunes. Could the tunes be causing this code to be set. Thanks a lot Bill Mad Macs Repair

Yes, the tunes can set this and any other code.

Re: Question for Mark Kovalsky

Hi Mark I would like to put a 4R100 in my 97. In this months Diesel Power mag. there was a rite up on building a strong E40D and they said the 4R100 was bigger and it would not go in an OBS ford. I`ve R&R both but never had them side by side. if you any imfo. on this. Thanks Bill

Re: Question for Mark Kovalsky

They don't know what they are talking about. The biggest difference between an E4OD and 4R100 is that Ford changed how they name transmissions. E4OD means Electronic Four speed Overdrive. 4R100 means Four speed Rear drive with a torque capacity of 1,000 lb-ft AFTER the torque converter multiplication.

There are hardware differences, too, but nothing major. The outside dimensions are EXACTLY the same. So I don't see how one would fit and one wouldn't. You do have to have one from a 7.3L, as all other bellhousings won't bolt to a 7.3L.

If you get an early '99 the pumps are the same. If you get a late '99-04 there is a difference in the torque converter clutch hydraulic circuit. In the early ones there is a 0.030" feed orifice. The later ones have a 0.250" hole here. If you use the larger one in an OBS the lockup will SLAM on. The solenoid bodies are different, too. You can use your E4OD body in a 4R100 and it will work fine.

The 4R100 has two speed sensors on top that the E4OD does not have. Ignore them. Just leave them in place to plug the holes.

Re: Question for Mark Kovalsky

What is the torque capacity of the E4OD?

If it is less than the 4R100, can the internals that make E4OD weaker be replaced with 4R100 parts?

1996 F250 CCSB, 4x4, auto PSD, stainless window vents.

I don't remember. It is less than the 4R100.

Yes they can. Everything from a 4R100 will fit in an E4OD case.

Re: Question for Mark Kovalsky

Thanks Mark. I thought they were the same but I feel a lot better hearing it from you. The name of the outfit that said they were different is Dieselsite. Another question: I`ve built manual transmissions and differentials for years but have never tried an automatic transmission. I`m not worried about how long it takes I was wondering how much I might have to spend on special tools for this build. Thanks again

Re: Question for Mark Kovalsky

I've tried correcting the people at Dieselsite before. They know what they know, they know they are always right, and they often are not right. I don't try correcting them any longer, it's easier to convince a wall that it's wrong.

Thank goodness we didn't actually write the article then.

We agree though that it is a decent boo-boo for information on their part but all we did was supply the transmission and our facility for them to take pictures.

Love you too.
