It's just a dust cover. That's the hole you need to access the torque converter drain plug. IIRC, there was a TSB for that plug falling out, believe it or not. While it won't hurt anything in the short-term (it's not water- or air-tight by any means), it may in the long-term from dirt and road crud getting up there, potentially ruining the front pump seal or worse.

Did anybody notice that the MotorCraft website no longer links the TSBs to the chemicals? :madder:
Steve,
for TSB Numbers (not the full TSB);
@ http://www.motorcraft.com/default.jsp
Click "Site Map" (in Orange bar)
Under "Products"
Click "Chemicals"
Click "See the complete Motorcraft® Chemicals and Lubricants Catalog" (right side, below pic of various chemicals)

Pop-Up is "Motorcraft Chemical and Lubricants Catalog"
http://www.fcsdchemicalsandlubricants.com/supplier/
Clcik a Category such as "A/C & Engine Cooling Products"
Click a Product, such as "A/C Cooling Coil Coating"
the applicable TSB Number (if any are avail) (such as TSB 03-5-6) will appear as well as the MSDS number and at times, the hot link to the MSDW number.

For a full list:
click "Quick Reference Charts" in red bar
Click "-TSB Reference Chart" for all Chem. products w/part number to any TSB Number(s)
or go directly to:(http://www.fcsdchemicalsandlubricants.com/supplier/quickref/tsb.pdf)

(or got directly to the site @ http://www.fcsdchemicalsandlubricants.com/supplier/)

and I find a lot of full TSBs by Googling for "tsb 01-15-7" and finding "TSB 01-15-7 ATF Usage Chart" @ http://www.v8sho.com/SHO/TSB01157ATFUsageChart.htm

also the ARRC Link I posted awhile ago has a lot of full Ford/BroncoTSB's, from about 1980 such as; "01/01/1980 ADHESIVES AND SEALANTS - AVAILABILITY AND USAGE"

With your screen name though, only reason I ask is that you do realize if you have a newer Ford Truck it would have the 351 windsor motor?

Ahhh, thanks for cluing me Al :thumbup

I've been sneaking around your site lately. It always amazes me the junk you've assembled. I found a link to all my Tcase pics as well. I'm planning on a full writeup on that soon, that will hopefully provide a ton of answers all in one thread. broncodriver has expressed interest in running it then.

Anyway, sorry for the piracy, back to regularly scheduled programming.

Sounds great on the tech write-up! btw, did you ever get the shift lever arm situation worker-out?
i looked all-over for the info, but no go... did forget to look in the Ford CD though; just remembered I have it....getting too old I guess.

Yes I did.

The shifter is indeed only 1 for the E4OD and it's that plunger style (this one is a used one from a 1997 F250 with E4OD. Here is a pic of it next to the floor opening everyone talks about....that glue is a SOB in trying to remove the plate. You can also clearly see the 2 bolt threadings in the E4OD where the shifter plate mounts:




All installed, ready to bolt seat back down (I pulled all the wiring from under the truck at this time as well). The shifter boot/plastic cover is from a 1996F150 with E4OD.:



Have not done the full writeup yet though since I need a few pics of the linkage, and the Tcase all bolted up under the truck, and then of course the hopefully successful test drive and 4 wheel operation.
