4R100 in 4x4 Removal and Reinstall

10364 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  klhansen
I have a 2000 F250 4X4 here I need to take out and install a rebuilt 4R100.
My question is; can it be gotten out and reinstalled using a transmission floor jack?. I can't seen to get lift time anywhere.
My trans floor Jack is a Pittsburgh from harbor freight. The plate and corner posts on it create a platform, I cannot picture working. If I can overcome that and have no idea as of right now, how to. Will I have enough clearance on a 250 to even get it out.
Shop manual says there is a gasket between it and transfer case. I have not looked at that joint yet. Is it infact a gasket or just RTV.
Thanks for any help/ insight.

I just pulled and installed mine in the driveway (sloped) with this same jack.
First thing I did was buy some 4x3 angle iron, bolted to trans jack plate so that the new steel pieces hug the pan and lift on the pan bolts heads. Very secure and no weight on pan.

I used this to pull the old trans and then jacked it up under the truck and removed trans jack. Go to HF and get those little dollies for car wheels. I lowered the trans onto these and slid it out from under the truck. I only had to jack one side (passenger) of the truck in the front.

Going back was the opposite. Oh and I left the transfer case on for balance.

There is a gasket between the trans and transfer case.

Using cherry picker/lift place entire assembly on dollies. Roll under truck. Place one jack under tc, one under front of the trans.

[This is the only really difficult part. I bolted a small 2x2 angle iron piece onto my other jack so I could lift from the front of the truck (under engine). This held the trans from falling off side to side. ]

Jack assembly up until you can get the trans jack under and secured to trans.

From here remove front jack. Use rear to help angle assembly to match engine and bolt up.

A serious pita. Especially when the wife is complaining the whole time..;)

I have pics if you need them.
