Re: 4R100 from 02 into 99 Super duty
Neither the 02 nor the 99 bracket were quite what I needed. Since the shifter lever and cable are meant to have about an inch longer throw, Park to First gear,than the 02 tranny. I spent several hours analyzing exactly how the linkage on the tranny moved in relation to how the shifter cable was moving. I had already adjusted the cable all the way out. I thought I had it all figured out and I bolted it on but the darn thing would not even go into Park. I was so mad, I cut the holes out with a torch which allowed me to slide the bracket forward 3/8 inch. I bolted it all back on and it works perfectly now. Kind of ironic that I spent all that time measuring everything out exactly and in the end it only took the torch.
I ended up using the 99 bracket and drilling/burning a few holes in it. I bolted the plate to the tranny and then the bracket to the plate. I ended up spacing the bracket out about 5/8 from the plate with some nuts and washers for spacing. I drilled another hole in the bracket and plate so I ended up with three bolts holding it all together for a little more strength. I would have included some pictures but we ruined our digital camera in Puerto Vallarta last week.
