Gary,

Before you get off the soapbox give us some more details on the changes/mods
you made to your AOD. I started to look into this once before but got
discouraged because everyone told me that my C-6, "Is the best transmission
ever made so don't change it!".

TIA,

BTW did Ford build the AOD with a big block bellhousing? What years used
the AOD?

Any help will be appreciated. >>

If you mean the towers or pedastals I beleive so. I swapped a 460 in a truck
that had a i-6 240 in it. I did have to move the towers forward one notch,
but otherwise worked ok.

Yes, my 70 F-100 came with a chrome, non-step, bumper. It is similar in
style and shape to the front bumper.

Subject: Square Headlights

I just bought a 78 Ranger f150 with a 400 a few weeks ago and now I'm
curious...
When did the square headlights start? I thought it was on all 79's, but
my Ranger has squares. A friend of mine had a base level 78 and he
switched the round lights for junkyard squares from a 79.
Now today I was reading my winter 95 issue of 'Ford Truckin' and they
have a reprint of of a 78 Bronco ad and it had Square lights. But the
The bronco in the ad is also a loaded Ranger. I always thought that it
was a distinguishing feature of the 79's.
So can anyone tell me if it is a fuzzy line through the 78 model year or
what? Could it depend on the plant it came from? or the trim level? or
did someone do me a favor and switch them for me. :-)

Most of the bumpers I have seen are the step type. I did see a truck with=

bumper that looked like a front bumper on the rear. (it fit correctly so =

It's a trim level thing. The Ranger trim level had the rectangular lights
in '78, all trim levels had them in '79.

Yes, there is a non-step bumper for the 1970. Macs and Obsolete
Ford both carry it. Personally, I think they look better, but
then again I'm partial to them since I have one!
