Ok update I have completely cleaned and reassembled the transmission I have installed the superior shift kit also using bench buddies to polish all bores installed the rebuild kit and all new gaskets Put in all mew servos, pistons and bands and also tested and cleaned the solenoid pack.

All looks good now I’ve run into a couple of problems and will post below but overall my transmission rebuild is almost complete!!

Plus I love the bronze paint on it! And yes I used engine paint

Ok so I’m replacing the drive shaft center support Bering cause the old one’s rubber was torn to pieces. And I have unscrewed the retaining bolt and can’t seem to pull out shaft you can see in the photos where I have scratched to paint trying to pry this thing apart. Any ideas to get this apart or am I missing something?


Also the broken bolt is part of the valve body it was the first on I tightened and I way over torqued it and snapped it right in half (I was an idiot and mixed up inch pounds vs foot pounds on the torque wrench) as soon I a broke the bolt I checked the valve body gasket and body itself for any bending or deformation and haven’t discovered any I seem to have gotten lucky. I take it since it was the very middle bolt in the valve body I was tightening, all the force was distributed pretty evenly so I hope that there is not issue with the valve body..

does anyone know where I could a be new valve body bolt? Cause I’m at a loss

I'd say the reason you are not getting much response to your tranny question is because most of us are 'too chicken' to attempt a tranny rebuild job. Personally, I admire anyone that attempts it even tho it is probably pretty straight forward once you get it out of the truck. My brother rebuilds them and he said the most important thing is to make sure you have a clean environment, room to work, and take pictures of everything you remove before and after. You are an inspiration and if I ever need a rebuild, I may just try it. Sorry that I am not much help on your questions.

I would look for the part number for that bolt and call your nearest Ford dealer service department, they should be able to order it for you.
