Thanks for the reply(s). The information is helpful. I did some more research and found that I need to focus on a pre-1986 AOD trans not the AOD-E model, as I am using a carburated 351W. I gotta tell you it is a pain sorting through all the internet opinions while trying to find factual info. This is why I joined the FTE site. It has been a great source for fact based knowledge. Thanks again!
