Great Build Jeff! Been a while since i've looked 'er over. (had to read a few pages!) Coming along very nicely! You're doing a fantastic job! Never been through a tranny myself, so watching with interest. I have an ATSG for C4/C5 trannies and am really impressed with the info they have in them. Need to get one for a C6 and maybe a few others. Handy info to have around ya know. Keep up the good work and keep those updates coming!

Thanks Dano! I am still working on the AOD. I have done several modifications/upgrades to it. I don't have it done due to lack of cash flow, but it's getting there. I have almost got the mechanical assembly done and then break into the valvebody. It's not bad, but it is taking me forever! I just want to make sure it's done right the first time.
I have to thank BlueOvalRage here, and another member 1965F100
Dan Gilsdorf-Silverfox Performance Transmissions.
He is also a primary member of clickclickracing,com AOD's are the main course there.
Also JK080 ?? he is another, and stuart??? LOL I can't remember all the names, but all have answered my many questions. Thanks to all!
There are many important lubrication upgrades, upgraded drums, friction plates, steel plates, overdrive band, reverse band, new bushings, seals, shift kit, governor hi rev kit, 7 tooth output shaft, 2600 rpm stall lock-up converter. and some other stuff I am sure I forgot. The real story will be told when it moves the truck! I will have to wait and see!

I'd definitely be interested in more detail what upgrades your did. I have a couple AODs laying around here and one will be ending up in one of my other cars here shortly and would like the lowdown on what you did to yours, if you'd share it.

I love this thread. I gives me hope for my '49 F1. I'm going to change it from pick up to flatbed so I'm looking forward to that part in your thread.

I haven't felt much progress this year. But the engine is close to done and the tranny is finally finished!
Took all year, but I refuse to use a credit card to build this!
I hope you enjoy it as much as me...
The front engine dress is '96 Ford Explorer...look at all the room between the fan blade and radiator! Hope everyone is doing great!
Today I feel good about the progress!

Looks good. Have you moved the radiator support to the set of holes in front? This should close up the gap between the fan blade and the radiator, unless the fan blade hits the radiator in this position.

Hi Ilya! I didn't try the rear set of holes yet. I just want to set it up and see what it looks like. I will certainly look at that! whats normal for a gap? 2" ?

Hey Jeff your motor looks great. I am about to build my trans mounts and motor mounts. I was wondering if you could have moved your motor closer to the front? I know you said you had about 1/2 inch from the firewall.But anyway looking good man keep up the great work.. Buzzzy

Hi George! Using this '96 Ford explorer powerplant, if moving it forward, would put the oil pan sump up against the JAG rack-n-pinion. raising it puts the AOD tranny up against the uncut firewall. The drivers side head is close to the firewall, but not a concern on the 302...351W is really close....the 1/2" you remember. Hope that helps?

Hey Jeff I was looking at your pic of the pan and was wondering how high off the crossmember are you? Also how about the space between your rear sump and the rack arm. I have about 1/2 from rear sump to rack. and the front pan about 2 1/2 inches. I am going to try get my cab on. I am by my self so have to prop motor and use the lift to move the cab. Lots of fun but I think i am pretty close. I do have the same pan as you recommended.
Thanks for all your help.Buzzy
