:shrugSorry I couldnt make it out this weekend. I spent my weekend rolling around the driveway again, removing the transmission I just put in. Turns out there is a thing called a stub tube. Its the bottom portion of the 2 piece trans dipstick tube. It seals into the trans and the top portion then connects to it via an oring. Well... the stub tube was damaged and loose and impossible to service with the trans in the truck. I dropped the trans a second time and ordered a new stub tube. Got it today. There is a seal/resin that is painted around the base of the tube. I am not sure how to install this tube. Not sure if that resin is heat activated or what... anyone know the procedure??
indeed...this is taking entirely toooo long :toothlessI HAVE to get this freaking Bronco back on the road sooon. Its starting to piss me off. This trans swap was supposed to be 2 days. Going on 2 weeks now.... on the bright side, if anyone needs help swapping their trans in their Bronco, I think I can do it in about 30 minutes (sans any stupid PITA problems)... :toothless

Got the stub tube, upper dipstick tube, new (used) driveshaft, all sitting in the garage. Gonna go after it tomorrow and try to finish it up by on Thursday...
