4R100 drain plug ?

Has anyone drilled a 4r100 converter for a drain plug?

My convertor has a DRAIN PLUG. I think either 2000 or 2001 was the last year.

Re: 4R100 drain plug ?

I have drilled many TC's but the were all non-locking, so I was afraid to try. When I ordered my precision converter I asked for it to be drilled and they would not ( said the hole could compromise the strength). Just use the tranny flush method found in FAQ, it works fine.

Banks exhaust, Hughes TC (replaced dead PI failed converter don't wast your money on the purple converter), Transgo tugger kit, Hyd oil filter on trans return line, custom HD y-pipe boot clamps, BW Patriot hitch, PML pans, Manual TC lock and indicator EBV delete the right way, bellowed Up-pipes. and too much others stuff -- 89 F250 7.3 IDI 4X4 tuff truck--Some KTM dirtbikes, 2001 Jetta TDI with 424,000 miles still running strong (hope this Ford lasts that long, 135,000 now).

Thanks Diesel drive, same reason i didn't want to try it without researching it. Billet cover and triple clutch upgrade done. Definately don't need a shattered case.
