Rebuilt AOD Trans
#1
I have been watching these for a while, and today they are on sale at a 17% discount. Since I plan on changing to the AOD, I purchased one today, I live close so I'll be picking mine up. If you live relatively close, or even with freight, this might be a good deal for you!

Hello Trainey,

That is a nice buy. Since you are converting, is the shifter lever still stock from the original car or has it been replaced with the shit Lever made to fit the 71-73 shifter? Here is a website that I used with research FMX to AOD conversion.

Not a bad price.

Can you use the original shifter or somehow make it fit?

I believe you can use the original shifter. Not sure if it will need modification, but Lokar sells an adjustable "universal" adapter.... there are 2. One has a 1/4 inch slot and one has a 5/16 inch slotted lever. The adapter goes on the transmission and has a slotted lever to accept the shift cable.

Added... part number is something lime Three letters -1000 or -1001 depending on if you need the 1/4" or 5/16" slit in the lever

I am not sure about the shifter yet. I have read Mister 4 x 4's posts intently. I know he modified and used the later model Mustang shifter. We'll see. It will be this summer before I'm ready to make the swap. I am also switching to 4V Cobrajet heads, new cam, intake and carb all at the same time while I have the engine out.

You can use the original floor shifter, but you need to modify the linkage.

Can you clarify a bit? Does the linkage at the shifter need a mod, or the linkage at the tranny? Or both?

I came across this Lokar adapter(that goes on the tranny) that I think is all I need, but I have read many posts about needing to alter the angle of the actual shifter lever. The slot allows an almost "universal" fitment, and the lever can be attached in almost any position via the 3 little bolts that attach it to the pivot.

Also, before purchasing the trans, verify that it has the CORRECT 5.0 HO internals, not just the standard Crown Vic or V6 stuff.
Truck units are another variation and have longer tailshafts, also.

They will bolt up to any small block, but the case of the Crown Vic unit that I installed in my 5.0 Mustang, it will shift mushier and at a much lower RPM than the HO calibrated unit will. It will feel like a grandpa car, which mine does.
Although driveable and in great condition, it shifts pretty early, and is in OD just before 40mph.
The rest of my drivetrain is stock (read: doggy), so it is kind of tolerable.

I believe a simple governor change to an HO unit will fix this (there are upgrade spring/weight kits available for the gov also).

I'd ask a boatload of questions before popping big coin for a undocumented rebuild.
There is a difference...

Silverfox is a good place to reference regarding the wonderland of AOD's:
