Hard Shifting

I've been having problems with a "clunk" noise whenever my AOD shifts into OD after letting off the gas. Shifts fine every other time. I've installed a new TV cable and adjusted according to the Haynes manual. I replaced the throttle cable due to excess slack. I checked all the u-joints and even looked at the rear and replaced gear lube. The truck is a 87 but the tranny is a 88 that was installed a while ago.

Is there anything else I can check without pulling the trans? Is there any difference between the 87 AOD and the 88 AOD that would cause this?

Thanks in advance

Re: Hard Shifting

whether this is accurate or not, i had been told by a trans shop that the AODs in ford trucks are notorious for doing this and that the 3rd & OD is a different design than that of E4ODs which dont seem to be affected. Mine has always done that IF you abruptly back off on the gas as it shifts into OD and according to the trans tech "typical" , 8 years ago, when i had it in there for a fluid & filter change [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

i know this is of no help but apparently nothings wearing out since i have put 75K on the trans since with no other problem
