AOD for 1966 Fairlane?

I have a 351W in my 66 Fairlane and it still have the old C4 transmission. I want to get in step with technology and go with an AOD transmission, however, I don't know what year to look for and or if there are different types. Of course, I want to stay away from anything with electrical attachments but I want it for my daily driver that will be not only fun to drive but able to get better gas mileage

83 to 91ish? 92 or 3 went electronic (aode) if I remember the dates right. There are subtle differences in the early models so later is better as far as upgrades goes. The trans is a bit longer so plan on a shorter driveshaft and rear crossmember mods as well. The Lokar TV cable is a must as well.

If you have a floor mounted shifter and find one with the external shift linkage pointing up, you won't have to go inside and reverse it. Some folks refer to the donor car being "column" versus "floor" shift as the difference, but you need to verify visually as to the linkage.

My 67 Mustang has an AOD froom a 91 T-Bird. And Kmatch has given solid advice. One thing to really think about is the rear diff gears. The following is quoted from another forum I tend to hang out in...

"In OD at highway speeds it would be the same as running 2.46 gears with a C4 or 3-4 speed manual. Your RPM will be 60% of what it is now at the same speed. If the r0pm is below 1900 your carb will be in the transfer slot range where you get some fuel from the idle and some fuel from the main metering system. That means it will run rich and the power will be low enough that when you press on the throttle (even slightly) the power valve will open up and make the mixture even richer."

Here's the link...

Here's a couple links that you will find most helpful...

http://www.becontrols.com/tech/tech.htm

With 4:11s and an AOD - 1900 RPM's is about 56 mph,
with 3.:73s and an AOD - 1900RPM's is about 62 mph.

Can't say I fully understand it all, just something to think about.

Ride On,

Noel

Looking to do the same thing on a '67 mustang with a 302 and C4

Can I just buy an AOD from Summit?

If I upgrade to a 351W in the future will the AOD bolt right up?
