Question Ford F-250 4WD

My son has a '89 Ford F-250 4wd with a C6 trans. We replaced it with a '93 C6. Now it will not lock in 2 High. Alway in 4low or 4high. Electric on the '93 trans is a 6 pole on the chassis a four pole for the safty switch. Plus the starter stays cranking in park and nuetral. Can you Ford Guys help out an old Chevy Man. I gotta get him back to work!

I thought they were AOD's by then, so I'm at a loss.

check your trans pan on your org 89 trans and compare it to the 93 trans your 89 is probably a c6 and the 93 a AODE . the trans may be longer , causing your transfer case not to shift right. or it could be shift linkage problems or internal problems in the transfer case

Cool

I will point out that an AOD style tranny will not bolt directly in place of a C6 tranny without noticing something is different. You would need the correct adapter for the transfer case and I would hope you noticed the differences in the trannys shape and size.

As mentioned the lengths are different between the two trannys too.

Perhaps I misunderstand your post. The starter continues to crank the engine when the shifter is in nuetral and park? Do you have to unhook the battery to stop the starter?

Thanks guys for the help! Checked the pans out and they are both the same. I know the guy I picked it up from the yard I use said it was a 93 but if the AOD's were in then I would question the yard. They look like second cousins. As far as the starter staying engaged, only have tried shiffting quick into gear where it will disengage. Still do not understand that one. Bad solenoid? Got new neutral safety switch and plan to change solenoid. If you can think of anything else I should check out please let me know. Again thanks for your time!

the starter problem should be UN related to the tranny xchange. Unless you possibly caught some wires between the bellhousing and the engine block on the install of the tranny.

The AODE actually came out in 1992 and the non electronic AOD continued though late 1993. These are the crossover years where you need to look at a tranny to know what you have. With a 92 - 94 Ford I look at the tranny in the vehicle to see if it is an electronic unit or not.

The ADOE has a good sized electrical connector that is easy to spot. The AOD only had a nuetral safety switch near the manual shift arm that threads into the case.

Then Ford released the 4R70W which started new things to watch for since the gear ratios in it are slightly different.

The last year of production for the C6 was 1996.
