  • TRANSMISSION – E4OD – NEW DESIGN ELASTOMERIC GASKETS FOR MAIN CONTROL COVER AND BOTTOM PAN
Publication Date: JANUARY 29, 1996

LIGHT TRUCK:
1996 BRONCO, ECONOLINE, F SUPER DUTY, F-150-350 SERIES

ISSUE:

Some E4OD transmissions built after December 1, 1995 will contain an elastomeric-type gasket for the bottom pan. This unique gasket replaces the previous cork-style gasket used for production. The elastomeric gasket has improved durability and sealing capability and is reusable.

ACTION:

If it is necessary to remove the bottom pan on an E4OD transmission containing an elastomeric gasket, clean, inspect and reuse the elastomeric gasket if not damaged. Torque the pan bolts to 14-16 N-m (10-12 lb-ft).

NOTE:CORK-STYLE AND ELASTROMERIC GASKETS ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE. DO NOT INSTALL AN ELASTOMERIC GASKET ON A TRANSMISSION THAT ORIGINALLY HAD A CORK-STYLE GASKET. DO NOT INSTALL A CORK-STYLE GASKET ON A TRANSMISSION THAT CONTAINED AN ELASTOMERIC GASKET.

NOTE:A UNIQUE TRANSMISSION PAN AND RETAINING BOLTS ARE REQUIRED TO USE THE NEW ELASTOMERIC GASKET FOR PAST MODEL SERVICE. IF THE TRANSMISSION PAN IS DAMAGED AND REQUIRES REPLACEMENT, A KIT WILL BE AVAILABLE. THIS KIT WILL CONTAIN A TRANSMISSION PAN, ELASTOMERIC GASKET AND TWENTY (20) PAN BOLTS HAVING AN INCREASED LENGTH TO ACCOMMODATE CURRENT AND PAST MODEL USAGE. CORK-STLYE GASKETS WILL BE RETAINED FOR SERVICE WHEN A NEW PAN IS NOT REQUIRED.
