I wanted to give a post-mortem update on my former '92 F150, but I didn’t want to clutter up the projects forum with something that will never be a project. Thus, here it is in off-topic.
The bottom line is, the transmission got down to one forward gear, and no reverse gear. The estimates I got to rebuild the E4OD were all in the $2000 to $2400 range, and I really would rather have a small tractor instead. So, decided it was time to let it be somebody else’s project. I bought it for $1000 a year and a half ago, and sold it for $800 this past Saturday.
My oldest son is getting married in April, and after that, I’ll be high on the lookout for a small tractor to run off charcoal. Once that happens, I’ll start a new project thread.
