Make SURE the converter is seated into the trans all the way,and that the alignment dowels are not doubled up.(that is ,if one stayed in the block from the old tranny and there is also one in the new tranny in the same spot)

I'm pulling a transmission out of a 95 f150 4x4.I have the transmission cooler lines disconnected, drive shaft, tranfercase,dipstick, linkage, 6 bellhouse bolts and it like something else stopping it

have you removed the bolts holding the torque converter to the flex plate as the torque converter should be pulled with the transmission and not separately
make sure that there is not a bell housing bolt from the front going back into the bell housing

61 apache truck 6 cylinder with 4 speed, what would all need done to fit a 350 in? I mean would tranni bolt up? I know fuel and ignition would need alittle changing and maybe the motor mounts but I...

you can get a new bell housing to fit the tranny to bolt to the new engine. you should be able to order one on-line. you will just have to make sure the tranny will handle the new engine. you will have to drop the tranny to put the new bell housing to the transmission. its not a very hard job, maybe a couple of hours

I have a rebuilt 1992 Mercedes 190e transmission, but now the transmission feels like it's slipping when I hit the accelerator. Do I need to change the transmission fluid? How long does transmission last?...

Maybe not necessarily change the fluid, but check to see if the fluid level is up to spec on the stick. Many times it will just be the fluid level that makes the transmission slip. After checking the fluid level, check under the car to see if you have a leak somewhere because you just may be able to tighten the transmission housing yourself. Generally what happens is that when a major component of the drive train is rebuilt, the gaskets and sealers need to be seated, and after a couple of heat cycles, the gaskets expand and contract, leaving a slight leak in the housing. So maybe try to tighten the bell housing on your transmission. Good luck!!

Transmission fluid leaking from bell housing when in gear.

If you have never done this before,it may be best to take the truck to a shop or have some one with experience help you. You will need the truck up far enough to take out the transmission. The linkage and drive shaft has to be removed,then unbolt the transmission from the bell housing.Special tools may be needed to pull and replace the seal.
Transmission fluid needs to be changed since it is a brownish color.

Loud noise coming from the transmission bell housing

If a manual transmission, look for a bad throw-out bearing, a disintegrated clutch component, or a loose flywheel--in any case, pull the transmission. If automatic transmission, the torus assembly or the flex plate may be loose or damaged. Again, pull the transmission.
