Possible to use 2wd AOD in bronco?
haven`t been around lately, too much OT at work, anyways, i bought some new shocks at sears about 3 weeks ago cuz they were on sale
50% off and finally got around to mounting them yesterday when i discovered my trans has begun leaking fluid from the front seal [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
I just turned over 180K , someone here mentioned thats life expectancy for a typical AOD. Anyways, my question is a co-worker has a rebuilt AOD from his dads cougar (i think, or some merc) 5.0 1990s , with no mileage as car was wrecked right after trans job, is it possible to change tailhousings to use this trans with a BW1345 or are the output shafts different lengths also?
I checked performance sites such as:
lentech, art carr, baumann engineering , tci, ford-trucks, etc , but no info
only that pre 88 AODs are not a desireable core due to poor oiling in the rear section. Its possible this could seep for another 20K , but i dont want to wait till i have no options before deciding which route to take.
I can get this rebuilt trans for a good $$$ if it will convert over.
Anyone know for sure????
