Swapping tranny's in a 95
All, I'll try to make this short and sweet.....
I have 95 GC 4.0 manufactured date of 6/95 with fulltime 4wd 249 t-case, bad tranny. Stamp on bellhosing says "290-4"
I have a donor tranny from 95 GC 4.0 with manufactured date of 01/95 with a 242 t-case. Stamp on bellhousing says "290-1"
The only visible difference are the fittings on the tranny itself for the tranny fluid lines. I can swap those though.
Here is my question.......when I first looked up a tranny on car-part.com it said they were different for a 95. Showing tranny's up through 01/13/95 and then 01/14/95 and greater for the other one. Does this really matter? Are the tranny's the same electronically and maybe my difference is just the fittings? Also, I've read where I should have no problem swapping the tranny that had the 242 on it into my tranny with the 249, but if I went the other way I would have to swap input shafts.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.......
