ford auto tranny question

I know this isn't Jeep specific, but someone here will know for sure. I've put a 5.0 mustang engine and AOD tranny in my '63 falcon and I'm going to hook up the falcon's stock column shifter....

I want to make sure I have the Park and Low positions straight....on the tranny.

I'm using the stock cable. If the cable is 'pushed' in all the way, I'm assuming that's the low gear, and if it's 'pulled' all the way it's Park. Do have this straight?

Re: ford auto tranny question

Ray I can't remember which way my Ford shifts but an easy way to tell is pull the cable set the gear in the forward position then try to turn the tail shaft. If it turns thats not Park, it does not turn then you have park. Thats how I test the trannies I,m not sure of when tying in the selector.
