Front pump replacment guidelines?
I am wanting to replace my front pump and the torque converter. I am lining up the parts I will need but I cannot seem to find any good instructions. The manual I have does not cover the transmission and I am only getting bits and pieces googling it. For parts I assume I will need the following - pan gasket, torque converter, pump, pump seal kit, and fluid. (replaced the filter and rear seal a few months ago) Other than that, what else? I would hate to start only to find I need to order something. I am also thinking while I have it apart replacing the shift solenoid and sensor. A couple of questions I have right away is:
How much fluid because I am putting in a new torque converter?
I see in the transmission instructions to mark the converter and flywheel to get the converter reinstalled correctly, but if you are putting in a new one, how to you determine the correct position?
I have also seen both sides of what side of the converter to install first.
Does anyone have a writeup for the pump or the converter by chance?
It's a 1995 4.0 with a 42RE and I understand there are two different converters, is it possible to get the converter number without having to take it off first so I can get the correct one ordered?
Any other things I should know that may not be mentioned in the manuals or generic instructions?
Thanks for the help! - Jeremy
