Problem with removing transmision on '72 Ford F100

I can't get the transmission to drop . It is separated from the engine block about six inches, and still no such luck. Do I have to remove the 4 bolts from the Flex Plate to the Torque Converter in order to allow the Torque Converter to stay in the Trans. housing ,or simply just drop out of the way? It seems that the Torque Converter is in the way of allowing the Transmission to drop. Any help or suggestions pleeeease!!!

Yes you have to remove the plate and the four nuts that hold the TC in the vehicle. You can damage the pump and the TC hub leaving on the flywheel. Also when the time comes to put the replacement in you have to align the TC into the pump of the trans, you can't do that if it is hooked up to the flywheel.

Remove the shield and use a remote start to turn the flywheel around to each nut. You can also use a pry bar pushing on the teeth of the flywheel to turn it. Then push the TC back into the trans to lower it.

Hope this helps.

How to get fly wheel off of 77 Ford F100, 351 mod, 400 block?


I had to do this on my 1988 F250, if I remember correctly:
Remove in this order:
Driveshaft, Starter, lower cover plate, transmission, torque converter.
Flywheel s/b bolted to converter.
When driveshaft is removed - plug gap in tranny output - between drive shaft and housing - to prevent fluid spillage.
When removing transmission - plug hole in converter to prevent spillage.
When handling converter hold it flywheel side down until - to avoid fluid loss.
I presume you have all the correct tools and a helper.
hope it goes well

I have a 1987 2wd ford f150 and there seems to be rusty water from my rad leaking out of my transmission area???


Hi, there are freeze plugs on the back of the engine block. If one of them has rusted thru, it will leak coolant into the transmission bell housing and out the bottom. You will have to separate the transmission from the engine at least a few inches or more to repair the freeze plug. If you need instructions for doing this, please reply with your engine size and type of transmission.

Transmission fluid


If your vehicle has the 5.2 liter,aka 318 cubic inch engine,there is only one transmission model applicable and it is the 42 RE which used to be designated the A500.It is a 4speed overdrive transmission.If installing a rebuilt trans and new remanufactured dry torque convertor.You add 4 quarts initially,then fire the engine and add another 5-6 quarts for a total capacity of 9-10 quarts.Fluid level is checked with the trans in Neutral.If you are only dropping the pan,you will replace roughly 4 quarts.The transfer case fills separately,but uses the same automatic transmission fluid.Capacity for the transfer case is about 2 quarts/fill to the bottom of the fill plug hole.Good luck.
