Another E4OD question for Richter 69

Hopefully I am worrying about nothing, but here's the deal.

I am converting my '95 F350 from 2wd to 4wd. I am using all the 4wd stuff off of a 1993 F350 donor.

I know I need to change the solenoid pack in the '93 trans to work with the '95 truck, and I planned on swapping in the one out of my 2wd tranny.

Additionally, as this 4wd trans has been sitting here, it has started overflowing with fluid. I believe the converter is draining into the case and filling it up. Is this normal for a tranny that's just sitting on the shop floor?

If not, what can be done to fix it?

Thanks man!

Greg

Greg,
I had that happen to a C6. If you leave the converter on the shaft it will not be on center to the lip seal because of the unsupported weight. The top of the lip seal may not seal and the bottom will be over compressed. Air will leak into the converter and gravity will drain the converter into the pan and sometimes outside the lip seal.
I learned to not store a trans with the converter on it. The worst part about this is that the lip seal may not rebound and should be replaced.
All this just because of storage.

If they sit with the convereter full it will eventually drainback and flood the unit.

besides the sol pack you need to swap the output shaft and tail housing.

why would he need to change the output shaft and adapter on his 4wd tranny since he is converting his truck to 4wd :?
