Ford 460 7.5L with E40D transmission part numbers??

Hello all, got a little bit of a different one for ya.

I have a 1995 F53 Motorhome chassis, 460 7.5L, E40D transmission.

My E40D came with the 4x4 version of the pan. Don't know what the PN is, don't care, because that pan doesn't have a drain plug and I want to get rid of it. I understand that I can get PN # F81Z-7A194-BA which is the 4x4 pan with the drain plug.

My local Ford dealer "genius" told me that that pan is available which is good. However when I asked him if he can add the drain plug itself as well as the pan gasket to the order, he didn't know what those were. UGH. So, he said "what's the VIN?" I provided it, and all that did was point him back to the PN#F81Z-7A194-BA pan as not being correct for my motorhome. Meaning it pointed him back to the original pan without the drain plug and it also pointed him to the cork version of the gasket, which worked with the old pan. I'm looking for the reuseable gasket for the upgraded pan, as well as the drain plug. He couldn't provide the part number for the drain plug, and why do we guess?.....because the vin pointed to the non drain plug version of the pan. So since my local Ford is useless, does anybody know the part number of the reuseable gasket as well as the drain plug itself? Or does the plug come with the pan already? Stealership couldn't tell me any of this lol

Have you tried to use the online at many of the thousands of auto parts store.. and look at their on line look up.. ??? And you can usually go into any a/p store and get a drain plug kit.. and put one in your existing pan.. for like 6 bucks..
So the way I change trans oil.. I never crawl under vehicle and never get dirty.. i just use a hand vacuum pump with large resovior and suck oil right out fill tube.. so simple..
Good luck and keep us posted

The pan you are looking for is on Amazon along with a reusable pan gasket.

Pan is OEM Ford part from Ford dealer. Gasket is ATP part that is high quality aftermarket.

Search on Amazon "B000O05RUY"

Gasket is listed on same page, ATP FG-300

There are cheaper aftermarket pans on E-Bay under the Ford part number.

I had a 1995 F-53 and just installed a drain plug kit on it.

Instead of using the plug, I used a thermocouple and installed a transmission temperature gauge in the dash to monitor transmission temperature. Thermocouple had a wire connector on it so I could still use it as a drain plug as well. Never had a leak. Being able to monitor temperature gave peace of mind.

Use what ever pan gasket you want.
