727 with overdrive?

I read fourwheeler mag recently and there was an article on overdrives. It said the 4 speed auto in dodge trucks is the A-518 they called it a 727 with o/d. So I look under my fathers ram and it looks like the same tranny, starters on the wrong side and case length is longer but this seems to be because of the bolt on o/d. Only 2 wires come out of it too.
Anyone tried this b4 or know why the o/d would not bolt onto an AMC 727?

It will never be finished unless it burns up in the woods.

Re: 727 with overdrive?

I saw an article in an AMC magazine that there is a company making bolt on O/D for the TF727. I don't know if they are doing it for the 4x4 version though.

Re: 727 with overdrive?

Keep in mind the application. In something like a CJ-5 or 7, the output yoke of the t-case would connect directly to the rear pinion yoke via a u-joint (i.e. no driveshaft).

Who needs a road...if there's a perfectly good JEEP trail somewhere else!?

Re: 727 with overdrive?

remember that the OD may be internal. No more gears are need to make a auto OD all that is needed is another cluch ban.

Re: 727 with overdrive?

the 518 is a differnt beast.

the guts dont even fit into a Tf727 case

if there were a cheap way to get OD in a TF727 the thousands of grand wag owners ( FSJ) guys would have hit on it to help the poor fuel mileage.
