I have a 1995 Ford F-150, 4x4, 5spd, with a 4.9 inline-6. It just rolled over 194,000 today. I changed the oil in it today, and I was inspecting it and I noticed that on my transfer case, down by the drain plug, there is a nice little hairline crack coming from the plug. Whoever the idiot was that changed it last must have used an impact wrench on it!
Anyway, if this motor ever decides to quit on me, which it probably never will, I am looking at a few different possibilities for an engine swap. First things first, can anybody tell me what transmission I have now? The numbers I found on it are as follows:
The transfer case numbers are as follows:
13-56-065-910(I am assuming this is either a part # or a casting #)
On the tag on one of the rear bolts:
BO25 1 1356-78
I am sure there are books out there with those numbers, but if you are the original owner, and/or you are sure the tranny has never been swapped, you can get a code off of the sticker on the inside of the door on the driver's side...The stickers should have something like a heading that reads "trans" and a code underneath that...
Give us that code, and it will likely be a quicker ID...
OK you have a Mazda Tranny 3.55 rear end NON limited slip and the spring codes just give me part numbers. I go this info from a Ford Service CD i bought off Ebay for 15bucks. It comes in handy you should look into getting one.
