@covijes - you really shouldn't start two threads on the same subject - maybe one of the mods will merge them.

But he's only started one... he posted here first, then I recommended for him to start his own thread as his problem didn't match this thread's title

I saw his other thread first. I just wanted to have all the possible help in one place. Maybe put the Diagnosis Thread you posted in his other post?, sometimes folks actually do search, and maybe they'll find that write up. It looks pretty inclusive.

Transmission

Ok guys I am confused. Could someone dumb this down alittle for me. I have 2 Broncos.....a 1995 XLT 302 with a automatic (assume E4OD) 105K miles and a 1996 XL 351 with a automatic..210K miles. Can I pull the trans from the '95 and put it in the '96? The '95 body is toast so I bought this '96 with a clean body.

Since this thread was brought back to life I have some questions that follow along the lines of the original title.

I understand the differences in the bell housing bolt pattern, that there were various updates along the way, and the gear ratios are the same.

When it comes to the internals, is there any difference between the big block, small block, or diesel variations? Could I physically build a small block version to the same specifications as a diesel version?

It would seem your question has already been answered:

the difference between these is:

forward clutch:
5.0 3 plates
5.8 4 plates

direct clutch:
5.0 3 plates
5.8 4 plates

this actually is a big difference and significantly contributes to a difference in durability. if youre on the hunt for a small block e4od get one from a 5.8

This makes me wonder though, if its worth saving anything else out of the 5.8 variant, or if 100% of the rest is the same.
Reading this has made me decide not to sell my 2wd 5.8 E4OD but rather strip it for parts, so when my 5.0 E4OD craps out, i can rebuild it with the bigger clutches.
