Mustang Fitment: 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004
Full Ratchet Action.
The stock factory shifter is fine for daily driving, but it has some serious drawbacks when it comes to street/strip performance. The Mustang B&M Hammer Ratchet Shifter has a full ratchet action mechanism for solid positive shifts, so there is no fear of hanging up between gears or missing a gear all together.
To prevent you from accidentally shifting into reverse while your banging through the gears the B&M Ratchet Shifter features a reverse lockout mechanism. To shift into neutral, reverse or park positions, just lift the trigger and ratchet the shifter forward for each position.
Direct Fit Installation.
The B&M Hammer Console Ratchet Shifter was designed to the 1994-2004 Mustang's center console with no modifications required to the factory AODE transmission. And to further simplify the installation this ratchet shifter includes the neutral safety switch, backup light switch, lighted gear indicator, leather shift boot and polished aluminum T-Handle.
STAGE 1: Fox Body Mustang Project Car by AmericanMuscle.com
Our 93 GT convertible is in rough shape! Ready to watch us overhaul it?
Say hello to our new Project Car, our 1993 Mustang GT Convertible! We're
bringing this 'vert back from neglect and transforming it into the car we
always wished Ford would build; a 93 Cobra Convertible. Now, we wouldn't
just throw Cobra badges on any Mustang, so you'll have to follow
along the entire series of Stages to see what we have up our sleeves!
For the first stage of our build, this GT was in serious need of a tune-up!
We wanted to get our GT running right, before we started working on the
rest of the overhaul. The parts we installed for Stage 1 included:

treatment. We'll see you soon for Stage 2 of this 93 Ford Mustang project build.

Ford AOD, AODE, 4R70W Transmission Linkage | Curt's Corner at Monster Transmission
Monster Transmission Presents Curt's Corner as Curt goes over how to
exchange the lever arms for the Detent or TV Cable Rod
This process and principle will apply for the Ford AOD Transmission, Ford
AODE Transmission, or the Ford 4R70W transmission.
In order to change the linkage you'll have to change it from the inside of
the pan. There are 16 different linkage arms offered for an AOD Ford
Transmission. So there are a lot of variables, such as 2 wheel drive, or if
it's a truck, or a Mustang,
If your transmission is built by Monster Transmission we will provide the
specific linkage system that you request.
To start the process you'll remove the pan, and for a little more room to
work with the transmission filter as well. Then the transmission valve body
is exposed and you'll be able to access your internal shift linkage system.
In the linkage Monster Transmission during a rebuild will add an extra
component to prevent the shaft from going behind the TV rod. Once inside
you'll first remove the rooster tail which has an 8mm bolt. Then under the
rod there is a 13/16" nut that you will loosen that will release the
tension off of the shaft.
Then a roll pin that fits inside of the casting of the case. This prevents
the rod from sliding out of the case. You can use cutting dice or needle
nose pliers to remove it.
Once that pin is removed the linkage will pull out after removing that
13/16 nut that was previously loosened. Then you can slide the linkage out
of the case. The new linkage will then slide over the TV shaft, and line
the rooster tail up with the linkage. The 2 flat lands are equal on both
sides so it could be placed up or down. Then tighten the 13/16 nut on the
new shaft. Before tightening all the way, make sure the linkage is all
lined up. If you miss the valve you won't have any movement at all. So make
sure its lined up correctly. Make sure the valve and that the TV system is
correctly attached. Then install the roll pin and tap it into place, not
too far down though so you can remove at a later time if needed. Then there
is a spring back behind the TV valve rod you can pull it around and rest it
against a shift place on the valve body. Then reinstall the rooster tail
Then its re-install it and test to make sure all linkage works properly.
Also verify the TV Bracket is attached correctly and springs back, then
reinstall the transmission filter and filter gasket. Then last but not
least the pan gasket and transmission pan.

Hurst vs MGW review
Link to the S197 MGW shifter:
Link to the MGW Rally shift ball in video:
Before and after w/ the Hurst and MGW plus CHE torque limiters. Both
shifters are great but the MGW is well worth the money. $340 for the MGW
and $180 for the k-member with torque limiters but its smooth now and still
incredibly short. The MGW is set at 6 turns in the video and is fairly new.
I may also do a full 10 turns and see how short the throw is.
Like I said both are great but the MGW is better in almost every way
besides price. The Hurst ate through the gasket in a matter of months.
***I also have another MGW review in my 08 Corvette. Great quality
