In our last issue, we had Remac Transmissions, in San Dimas, California, go through a Ford 4R100 auto trans to make it better than new. This time, we will be installing that beefed-up trans so that our F-250 shop truck will be able to safely perform a multitude of tasks, from moving parts to towing trailers of all sizes. However, before that can happen, the better than new automatic needs to be installed.
While installing an automatic transmission may seem a simple task, each vehicle and transmission type has some unique aspects to consider. For example, this installation will take place in a 4×4 with a transfer case. If you have a high-milage truck, be sure to have the T-case inspected and if needed, have it refreshed too. We’ll cover the basics for our vehicle, and provide a few tips and tricks along the way. This should help you if you decide to do a 4R100 replacement on your own Super Duty. DW
