It should be a 4R70W unless someone has been messing around with it. There should also be a tag back by the tailshaft housing bolts.

on the tail it has RF-F3LP-7A040-AA basic-6 46 W stamped on it

That looks like a Ford engineering number for the tailshaft housing, look for a metal tag on the tranny, it will either be under a bolt or inlaid in the main case.

on the side of the transmission behind the shift cable bracket it is stamped RF-F7SP-7006-AA
