This is something someone with basic mechanical skills can do? I do all my own work, but have never been inside a tranny.

I have heard there are some special tools you need also to get inside one of these.

For the average guy it can be done at home, you do need at least one clutch tool that you can make or build if you can't borrow one.

What tranny are you building? It is best to take one that you know the history of, one that was for the most part working but slipping or something that you know to be in good shape.
Buying a core and building it is not a good idea for the home builder. We just do not have enough experience to recognize bad parts or a bad case.
If you are taking your tranny and freshening it with updates, no problem you will do a great job.

Should be cheaper than that if you're going to steal so many parts!


j/k.
I would add that you'll need two 6 pinion planet carriers, a front and a rear, besides the 4 pinion od gear.

If yours is still an original '92 trans (I'm guessing the year by your sig), you should consider buying the upgraded front pump too. The newer pumps have more capacity to keep the line pressure up. If your trans has been replaced at some point, it may already have the bigger pump. Look at the first two characters of the engineering number on the face of the pump. A "F8" indicates the newer pump. A "F5", "F1", or "E9" are the older style.

So I have a Question for the been there done that guy. I have a 6/96 powerstroke with a burnt up transmission.. got HOT. highway speeds in low range for many miles.. so i got a 4r100 out of a 04 the cases are different. i checked the part numbers against e4od and they are seemingly the same. can i swap the guts effectively?

not positive, but i am pretty sure the 04 used the 5R100 trans.
