I thought we'd demonstrate how the B&M Megashifter works in regular and
ratchet shifting modes. We used our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am to demonstrate
just how well it functions. This is basically the same way that most
ratchet type shifters operate. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for
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.
