I have a 92 2WD F350 with a 7.3L Diesel and an E40D transmission (which is
the problem). My neighbor's kid has a wrecked F250 gas burner 4WD which the
father wants to get out of his yard. I haven't checked yet and the father
knows very little about the truck. I did look inside the cab and the shifter
is the same as on my truck (with the 'knob' on the end for the OD) and the
dash is the same. I don't know the 250 has the E40D transmission (but I'm
hoping) but if it does I need to know a few things before I talk with the
kid about money.
First is there any reason why a E40D transmission from a 4WD would not work
on a 2WD?
Second how difficult is it to R/R the transmission in these trucks
Third is there any real mechanical difference between a 250 and a 350? I
would think the main differences would be in the suspension system and maybe
in the rear end gearing.
Also can anyone give me a hint as to what would be a fair price for the
transmission alone and for the entire truck. FYI, the truck hit a tree and
took out the front end and bent the frame. The father thinks the motor is
shot but isn't sure. So please make a guess about it running and another for
if its not. I know a running engine would make the truck worth more but a
gas burner is useless to me. The interior is in fair shape but the glass is
busted out so it has been exposed to the elements for quite a while (6+
Well thanks for any info you can give me.
