There's bit more to it Shaun. You need to purchase a rear mount support and mount as well as an adjustable gear linkage as the shift lever on the AOD is a different ratio than a C4. Not forgetting the TV cable. Depending on which carby you use, you may need to purchase a TV cable adapter as well. All these items are readily available and without them installation is a PITA.


Thanks for that Smile

My AOD is coming with flexplate,convertor and driveshaft.

The AOD is coming from a '88 Fox, would the shifter linkage suit the installation in a '65 ?

Think you will find the '88 flexplate is 50oz while the 66 is 28oz, not good to have a 50oz flexplate on a 28oz motor.

Would suggest you get your current flezplate redrilled or find a 28oz flexplate for the AOD.

Another option is to fit a late (mid 80's) 302, they are 50oz so your flexplate will bo ok.

Trust this makes sense.

MY engine builder machined the flex plate weight down to suit, so that's also an option.

Any idea how they measure or know how much to remove?

He probably did it during balancing, so that probably won't help in this case.
But I guess you could also measure the amount of metal you're machining off.

Gazza, the shifter won't fit neither will the driveshaft. Your own driveshaft may fit. I suggest you purchase a shifter adapter. I'll post more details up later.

I have a shifter linkage that was supposed to have been shortened to suit a mustang. I didn't use it because I put a B&M shifter in mine.

I can take a pic if you want, and if it suits, you can have it.

Hybrid, the problem is not only with the length, but the ratio of the AOD selector as opposed to the C4 selector. The AOD selector only needs to move around 1/2 of the C4's distance. The linkage I'm talking about allows infinite adjustment and fitment is a snack.

The actual imbalance weight isnt really 28 or 50 ounce so there must be some formula to work out the required amount.
Moment of mass or something like that?
This is just a curiosity btw.
cheers

I was sure post 87 AODs were AODE?? so no need for tv cable?..

here is my linkage I took out. this is what the previous owner did. welded the lever and "looks like" 2 sections on the linkage arm.

I believe the aode was released in 1993. You may not need aTV cable but you do need a computer to drive the changes.

I've been looking for a pic of the shift lever i'm using and I just can't find one. I'm working ob Blue atm and will take some pics of my install hopefully tomorrow.

Ok so new linkage required. I'm only using the nose of the driveshaft and having it welded to mine.

I have an AOD in my '68, I can take some measurements from that.

Thanks for the help guys, I really do appreciate it Like
