I think Gary mentioned something about the dist. hole on the other list, but
check the valve cover bolt too, if that's stripped you'll have to come up
with some other way to fasten the valve cover ... or fix the stripped hole
...

What linkage ? The throttle ? I put a holley on my truck and everything
bolted right up, no problems, that was using a stock intake (from a 65
Galaxie), but it was still no problem to hook up ...

Uhm ... there's only one door seal on these old trucks ... depending what
year you're talkin of course ... but at any rate that whole "2 seal" idea is
relatively new ... I've thought about trying to mimick that on my truck
though ... cut down on the wind noise and such .... hmmm.... :)

Ok Guys,

The fight for the 4R100 (code 44E) transmission on my 2000 F150 5.4 SC
Flareside Lariat 4x4 is over, and I lost. My last ditch effort was to try
to order the CA Emissions pkg., code 422, which would give me the stronger
tranny. But that didn't work either. I even spoke with a "supervisor" at
Ford Customer Service and told him I would be relocated to CA in 2 two 3
months and he told me that it could be done and even recommended I do it so
that I wouldn't have to pay the CA emissions penalty. But the dealer here in
Austin, Covert Ford, still came back and said I needed to have a permanent
address in CA.

I give! I'll just live with the 4R70W tranny and just hope it survives the
Kenne Bell Supercharger (an extra 80 hp).

Thanks for your earlier help and advise guys!!

Joe,

Take a look at this website. Look at the 2000 F-150 info. On page 10 of the
2000f150.pdf file is says that with order code 93N, Vehicles MUST be
registered in California or Northeast States. Since you live in Texas, you
might want to ask your dealer about his? In the same paragraph, it says that
this is for vehicles not being delivered to California or Northeast States.
Since my vehicle will be delivered to a Northeast State, I hope I don't have
a problem. It's already on my order!

Hey Joe,
I just called two local ford dealers and explained as much of your
situation
as I could and the reply was this........you could place your order through
any
california dealer and then then only additional cost would be destination
charges. Your biggest problem with this would be to either come to
California
to close your deal or have a Power of Attorney but, considering your
position
on such a truck, if you dont want to settle for what they'll give you ( I
wouldnt either)
I would hop a cheap flight into Ontario or Burbank and close your deal.
Also, just as an added note, as of 1989 all vehicles must meet federal
emission
standards. There is no physical difference that I am aware of in the
manufacturing
of vehicles. Matter of fact you could go to your local dealer and look at
the
emmisions sticker under the hood and read for yourself that the vehicle
meets
CA emission stds.

Joe,
I must have missed your earlier post on this subject. I also have the 4R70W
trans. in my 300+ HP 5.0 powered 1994 Supercab. I contacted Art Carr about
the problems with this transmission. In reality this trans. is actually an
AODE with a better 1st gear ratio. The total parts cost to make this tranny
virtually bulletproof was a little over $500 and then of course you have to
figure in the labor to install it. The rebuild kit basically contained a
stronger drum assembly with more clutches, Torrington bearings and other
internal parts, it also would be a wise idea to buy the Art Carr valve body
kit. I made the mistake of putting in the Transgo kit and I am not really
happy with it. I sold the Art Carr kit to a buddy of mine for his 4R70W and
after installation the tranny woke right up. It shifts better then my Transgo
equipped trans. and the temps stay steady, whereas mine has various temp
readings. If you want more info and part numbers, Email me off list and I can
send them to you.
Again my 5.0 is putting out over 300+ HP to the rear wheels and I have yet to
have a problem with the trans. since the rebuild using the Art Carr parts. I
compete in the Fun Ford Weekend Top Truck class, 2nd in the points for the
nation, and also race my truck regularly on the weekends. Plus I am a
Maintenance Supervisor for an apartment complex and have my truck loaded
regularly.
Hope I have helped,

Slightly off subject- I noticed your comment about adding the Kenne Bell blower.


I have a 99 5.4L expedition- which, btw, has the 4R100 transmission- and have
studying supercharger options for a month or so with a view towards doing something
next year.

Would you mind sharing some thoughts on your choice of the Kenne Bell unit and
what you may have rejected along the way?

One apparently attractive alternative I have considered is the package offered
by Allen Engine (www.allenengine.com) which includes an Eaton blower with bypass
valve, manifold and integral water to air intercooler. Package price is about

the same as the Kenne Bell.

Any comments appreciated.

Interesting idea, but I don't know that what the 4R100 would give me is
worth that much trouble.

What I can't figure out is why they put the 4R100 in the CA truck and the
4R70W in all the others, accept maybe in the North Eastern States. What the
in the hecks the difference?

Hey Joe,
I just called two local ford dealers and explained as much of your
situation
as I could and the reply was this........you could place your order through
any
california dealer and then then only additional cost would be destination
charges. Your biggest problem with this would be to either come to
California
to close your deal or have a Power of Attorney but, considering your
position
on such a truck, if you dont want to settle for what they'll give you ( I
wouldnt either)
I would hop a cheap flight into Ontario or Burbank and close your deal.
Also, just as an added note, as of 1989 all vehicles must meet federal
emission
standards. There is no physical difference that I am aware of in the
manufacturing
of vehicles. Matter of fact you could go to your local dealer and look at
the
emmisions sticker under the hood and read for yourself that the vehicle
meets
CA emission stds.

THAT'S GREAT Wayne!

Yes please send me the info on the kits you used. Send them to the list,
I'm sure the guys will be interested.

My only concern is she's gona be a 4x4 and I worry about the transfer case.
Can I bullet proof that?

I look at it this way, I'm not going to be towing very often, so I figure
the occasional heavy foot on the unladen S-charged 5.4 Triton
(~350hp/400+ft/lbs) hopefully wont do anymore than a long haul up a steep
hill with a 3500Lbs. boat on the back. Sound like a valid thought, or am I
on crack?

Joe

Joe,
I must have missed your earlier post on this subject. I also have the 4R70W
trans. in my 300+ HP 5.0 powered 1994 Supercab. I contacted Art Carr about
the problems with this transmission. In reality this trans. is actually an
AODE with a better 1st gear ratio. The total parts cost to make this tranny

virtually bulletproof was a little over $500 and then of course you have to
figure in the labor to install it. The rebuild kit basically contained a
stronger drum assembly with more clutches, Torrington bearings and other
internal parts, it also would be a wise idea to buy the Art Carr valve body....
