EAOD in older truck
 
I have located a EAOD automatic with a transfer case for my truck project..Now the question is just how do I go about getting the overdrive and such to work since I will not have the brain..

Is this like the 200r4 where a fellow can just put a switch on to turn the OD unit on or is it something else..???

You mean an AOD-E? You need something to control line pressure and shift points with that transmission. You can use a Baumann controller. A little pricey, but half the price of the competition.

Thanks for that link..lot of good stuff there....I spent a god bit of time on the phone with a fellow that has experience and with that info tok a pass on the EAOD..so now it is off to look for an AODE which is smaller and fits my app better.

Thanks ..we will get this sorted someday,,

Yeah I am trying the same.TransGo also sells a kit ,called AOD-E 3.Ment to be used on transplants without computer,$337.I will try on an old Galaxie.

From what I have been given to understand the AOD was used from about 88 to 93 in various cars and trucks..and it is the one to use as it is a bit simpler to get working in an older car..That is unlees one wishes to learn a whole lot about computer controls..

I did get an opprotunity to chat with Zeke the EFI guy and he has done this so I now have a good resource in that area..

What engine are you using?

I am using a 302 so it is amatter of figuring out just what works with what...By using the stock ford components it will save a bunch on adapters and such..Turns out the motor mounts and drivelines are the easy piece as well as finding the parts that bolt up..The hard part is getting all of this working to my satisfaction..If it was the old pre smog stuff it would be easy to do..relatively so any way..
