1998Ranger25L153CID is starting off with a positive reputation.
I subscribed to this thread a long time ago. I've gone through the original transmission, a Ford partial rebuild that lasted about a year, and then another partial rebuild that lasted 1 day of driving. Then finally a Motorcraft remanufactured unit that lasted a few years about 87,000 miles with proper 30,000 mile services. Then I bought one from a local transmission warehouse that is no longer in business that custom built it with whatever HD parts there was, which wasn't much or maybe nothing but it's outlasted the previous two rebuilds and doubled the time the Motorcraft remanufactured one lasted. I believe it's coming up close to 150,000 miles or maybe even 200,000 miles on it and as far as I can tell it's still good. The good thing is I got to keep the old transmission. I was wondering is it a rebuild a couple of friends could tackle with a fair amount of automotive experience combined and be confident that it may work? I've watched the videos and have the Ford guide. All it's doing is just sitting in my garage on a jack. I was told that at least the torque converter was bad when the transmission was replaced.

I forgot to say to put the TRS on the suspect list too, if line pressure checks out ok.
