Got my AOD torn apart and just bought some rebuild items.
I am glad I didn't try to use it as is....I would have been disappointed...

The direct drum was fried, a snap ring and retainer went haywire, but other than that, it is a go for rebuild! Bought a used replacement direct drum, a rebuild kit, a 2500 rpm stall lock-up converter, oh...and a shift reprogrammer kit from Baumann Engineering.
I gotta thank BlueOvalRage for putting up with me! Thanks Joe!
I got some real tedious cleaning to do, a trip to KY, and then time to start putting it back together.

Hey Jeff,
If I can ask an AOD question or two...

o What Baumann Engineering "shift kit" did you use?

o How can you tell looking at the Overdrive Drum that it's fried?

I've been contemplating putting in a new Governor in mine to raise the
shift points ... Hmmm... I wouldn't wait too long to put that thing back together - there's a lot of pieces to that puzzle..

o What Baumann Engineering "shift kit" did you use? www.becontrols.com it's the RK AOD $59.95 you can read about it there. i just ordered it yesterday.

o How can you tell looking at the Overdrive Drum that it's fried? It's actually a "direct drum" and its apparently a common problem so i have read. picture number 2, above, is a picture of the friction and steel plates that came out out of it. they should have friction material like a clutch disc. and the steels should be smooth and flat. these are none of the above! aka Fried!! lol the drum itself is discolored from heat. the aluminum piston inside is also discolored and even slightly degraded from the heat it produced while slipping.

Ben,
I am curious about your setup and will get back to you from a computer instead of this "stupid phone" ... my fingers are way to big for these very small buttons!
i can get you a link to a decent tutorial on the governor removal. not a real tough job, but it sure is easier on a tabletop vs. under the truck!

Enjoy or puke! LOL
Hey Jeff the pic of your motor looks great! Is that the correct oil pan! It looks flat from the front to rear sump. I thought you used the one that has a double hump. I looked at your early pic about which pan worked with the Jag front. Now I am confused but maybe you can help me. I dont know If I am clear on my question about the double hump Large on the rear and small hump on the front.The one on the rightin the pic. It looks on this pic it is flat from the back hump to the front.Thanks for your input sorry for not making alot cents. I need spell check.. George

rubber biscuits or "crumpets" as someone called them!
The lowers are made out of that same 1/4" plate from the homemade bedsides.
the uppers are too, but wrapped with 3/16"x 3/4" flat bar. On the bottom side of the uppers, I welded (2/ea side) 3/16"x1/2" flat bar in , for stiffening. I was a little concerned about engine torque bending these. I still have some concern about that, but after seeing some of the skimpy aftermarket mounts...I shouldn't have to worry much. We shall see!

Hey Jeff like how you made your motor mounts. How much clearance did you have from your firewall ? I am about ready to start fabing for some motor mounts and I think I can modify my stock crossmember for the t-5. iam thinking do something like you did I first have to get the motor and trans where they need to be . i think yours are pretty beefy i dont think you will have any problem.

Hi George! I have about a 1/2" of clearance between the firewall and drivers side head. I would prefer a little more, but it should be fine.
It's the drivers side you got to pay attention to because it sets back farther than the passenger side. If you do a set like mine, also make sure you have your oil filter on the motor or remote mount unit, whatever you are going to use. It is a pretty snug fit on mine. A 1/4" difference would kill ya!
