Could someone tell me what the diffrences are in the F350 from 1986-1997?? I know the motor changes and diffrences but how about trannys and tcases??? Front and rear axles??? Did they all have the E4od for autos and RC60 for front axles???

E4OD came in late 80s... either 89 or 90, I can't remember.

The RCD60s went to ball joints in 92

They should all have 10.25 rear ends. Maybe an odd D80 if you get into F450 stuff, but prob 10.25

Tcases were all 1356 at that point.... maybe a few 1354s in 86-87??

That's pretty close, anyway.

At least with the diesels, through 87 ran the t-19b 4 speed stick and the c6. Some late 87's and all later trucks ran the zf5 od trans. The E4od was definetly introduced by 89, but I am not sure when. Mabey 88? Also, both the e4od and c6 were concurently availible through 91, I think. I know the 85 uses a bw 1345 t-case, and I think it continued through the early 90's, and somewhere switched to a 1356. Rear axles should all be 10.25.

At least in '97 (and not certain how much earlier) they stopped using the 1356 and started using the Borg Warner.......4404? ... or something like that. A web search for various BW 'cases would turn it up..........I just don't care enough 'cause it's not a real desireable or common 'case.

On the 97's, you got the 4404 if you didn't order the PTO option, the 13-56 if you did...

Behind the 460, you will find all 10.25's, behind a diesel, in 85 and 86, you will find some D70 rears.
T-case in these trucks was the 1354 up until about 88, 13-56 from then on.
The C6 was avalable on the option sheet right up until 97, they're just not very common past the early 90's. The T-19 was offered until 91, in 460 powered 4x4's, it's the T19-A with the 6.32 first gear, just like a T18, in 2wd's, and diesel 4x4's, it has the 4.02 first gear. The T-19 was only offered behind the 460 and diesel, the other gas engines(300(earlier trucks) and 351W, no 302 over 8500 GVWR, no exceptions) only got a T18/NP 435, or a ZF 5 speed..

The ZF was first offered midway through the 87 model year.

80-85 had the TTB, 85.5-up have the HP 60
Prior to 83, there was no 460 or diesel, the big power option was the 400....

To the best of my knowedge, the rear end changed from the d70 to the 10.25 somehwere in mid 85, I beilive right around 1-85 date of manufacture. I have not heard of a 86 or newer with a stock dana 70 rear.

I have an 08-86 built F350 crew cab 4x4 with a 6.9 and the D70 rear.
Ford wasn't exactly precise about what was used when... LOL

Yep... I have personally laid my hands on a 94 or 95 F250 diesel supercab with a C6. Door sticker matched.

PTO on a 1356? Was this strictly a '97 thing? Anyone got a pic of a 1356 with PTO?

Sure, I'll grab my digicam next time I have to work on my buddy's 88 F350.
