Also, generally speaking, the splined area is normally bigger than the inner part, so the yoke should theoretically be able to slide past the end of the spline.

Got all your brake pieces Ed. Give me a call tonight and we can figure how to get them to you ( like meet at Goulburn, for example).

There's no such thing as an Aussie AOD box. They were never used here.

Aussie AOD box comment was from the diff man, he doesn't do gearboxes. And I'm a Holdon man so that's my background before the mustang so I know very little about Ford boxes.

That's what he said, that's why he wanted to go to the Ford wreckers and try it on an Aussie auto. I had to take pics of the spline for him so I'll post them here, it's bigger after the spline, makes a solid thunk when you bottom out. You can see the taper and one shot shows the housing held in place by hand to show how far the spline sat when bottomed out. He is either going to ream it or trim 25 mm off because there's still enough left for the bearing.

Okay, a trick to watch out for with USA gearboxes. I measured my tailshaft from the gearbox seal to the centre of the diff uni. Rob made my tailshaft the same as he's been doing for 20 years, measured from the shiny surface on the outside of the yoke spline back to the diff end and took of 25mm. He said that's what he does for the aussie AOD boxes.Unfortunately, it seem the american aod's are shorter on the splines inside? Mine was 25mm too long. You can see the red line on my tailshaft at the top and the c4 yoke underneath that he had me try.

I had to drop the back of the gearbox and remove the output shaft case to take photos with the yoke on and next to the shaft to show him.


25mm difference ... is that a case of short vs long extension housings.


No idea about the length of extension housings Dwayne, my first experience with AOD's. It is shorter than my C6 that I took out because I was going to use that tailshaft to save $$$ but couldn't. I'll have to wait for Nuts to jump in and explain, he'll know.

The Truck AOD Extension Housing is 11 1/4" and the car one is 10 1/4". The rear shaft is also 1 inch different.

So why not just cut down the yoke?

You can swap over the shaft and housing, but it's a complete rebuild. Just do the tailshaft.

Hi Ed just read your thread, nice work. I noticed you were after info on trans am dogbone style shock tower strengthening, Ozbilt did these for me and did a good write up on it in Patience's thread - look for Kerry's signature cornflakes packet
www.mustangtech.com.au...t=360.html

Also noticed you have CNC skills, open access to CNC machines, planning a RHD conversion and looking at a 6 pod dash fascia. Interestingly I've got CAD models for 65-66 6 pod dash and matching glovebox door (LHD or mirror RHD) and billets of aluminium gathering dust. maybe we should talk!
