Auto transmission options behind a 7.3 IDI

Will a C6 fit behind a 7.3 IDI if the E4OD shoots craps and a C6 is readily available? Much/any fabbing required? Bolt-in?

Thanks,
D

The C6 was available from the factory, so it's a bolt in. You would need to get a C6 from a diesel.

These trucks suck w/o overdrive! Just make sure you get all the linkages and everything that goes with the c6.... I would recommend buying a whole parts truck so you can be sure you have everything you need. That's usually cheaper than buying all the parts individually. And you can see it in the truck, so you'll know where everything goes!

I have a 1992 7.3 idi with an e4od and it gave out.. I'm looking at a zf 5 Speed from a 1995 powerstroke, does anyone know if the 5 speed's bell housing will bolt up to my motor? If anyone knows anything then please respond ASAP.. Thanks

I'm pretty sure it will bolt up.
