Nice to hear that people are so pleased with the 460 since I just recently purchased a '94 250 HD with that powerplant. Any helpful information anyone can provide on the E4OD? I have tried to do some searching on this forum and have come across some posts that can get one worried about the E4OD. I am sure though that this forum will see a lot more bad comments on the E4OD than good as the common "no news is good news" seems relevant.

Glad I bought my 94 F250 HD with the 460 as I feel it will provide many years to come. It is not my daily driver though, good for that since it does NOT sip gas

Cheers...

I really don't want to comment on the E40D in mine other than the fact that it just hangs under the truck and does its thing. I have more trouble with the selector on the transfer case sticking (needs a grease zerk added in a strategic spot). We used to haul hay on a 32ft gooseneck with the truck (previously towed by a 1 ton Chevy...that ate transmissions left & right, a 1976 GMC 3 Ton....beastly beast of a cabover with no critter comforts at all and finally an 83 F350 Dually with the big international diesel. Selling that one was a mistake...but it didn't do as well in the sandy fields as the 4x4, much more comfortable road truck though)

That ain't saying much. My old man has a Hemi & it has less power & worse gas mileage than my 460.

Keep the trans. fluid clean, maybe ADD a trans cooler. Then hope that good fortune follows you. (I don't know if you want to hear that from me - I'm on my 3rd trans).

I'm nursing a 89 F250 460, 4x4. C6 auto, back to health. It has 155,000+ (speedo and odom were broke when I bought it, but I fixed it)

Just got done fiixing the mechanical oil sending unit as well as the lower intake manifold gasket (talk about leaks, yikes). I did the rear seal last december, but apparently I should have followed the rubber oil pan gasket advice. She's leaking like a screen door right now up top back by the bell housing. I put a high-flow Cat and Cat-back exhaust on it too which has increased my MPG (noticeable difference but I haven't calculated the difference). I'm sure the original OEM Cat and OEM muffler were stuffed with crap. Tranmission filter/fluid as well as rear diff fluid is next. I just re-installed a Subaru engine so I'm getting that POS back on the road first.

What fluid exactly should I put in the rear diff? This will be my first rear diff fluid change I've ever done.
