Don't know where else to post this so here goes.

Been fighting to finish rebuilding my E4OD (F250 with 460) and can't find anyone who sells decent reasonably priced parts for this horrible nightmare of a transmission. All of the used parts floating around on the internet and sold by local shops are garbage. I wasted over $300 so far on junk that is in worse shape than what I have and the new aftermarket stuff is just Chinese trash.

In particular, I'm trying to find a machined center support (with the Sonnax snap ring) that is machined according to specs. The last two I bought from Transtar were machined sloppy and out of square. I don't trust the ones sold on ebay either.

I'm so frustrated with this thing that I want to put a match to it. So far I have $2000 into it and still need more stuff. Worst part is trying to find someone who knows about this transmission, which is why I'm rebuilding it myself and don't trust anyone. It's bad enough that there are so many updates that need to be done to this thing.

Ok, so how far out of square were they? The problem I have had over the years is that the stock center support isn't actually "square" so no matter how you mount it on a lathe or mill you end up at least a few thousandths difference on the pads. If you correct for the factory, you end up machining off the wrong side and that isn't what you want to be doing.

I have one that is just a few thousandths out. This one is about as good as I have gotten.

Let me know.

Always feel free to call me. 317-514-0816
