old ford transmission

i have a overdrive trans which on the tail shaft SB F or E 300, R10E-1, the solenoid is small and has cole boston identification which I believe it's a 6V also on the other side of the OD is benix product part #2170.748 and 2.170.767, the main case has 8A 7222. I converted by 1950 ford to 12V on everything but the dash which still remains 6V. I want to know if this OD system is 6V and can i still get 12V solenoids for this unit?

A few years back I rewired a 1950 Ford for 12v with the OD trans and swapped a 12v unit from a 57.. The large solenoid is the engagement solenoid, and the small unit on the opposite side of your trans is the governer..(IIRC, the governer keeps the unit from shifting into od at speeds below 35 mph, and disengages it at speeds below 35)

I have heard from some folks that a 6v solenoid will work ok with 12v, but I think it's a gamble. You can get reproduction solenoids, you need a couple of measurements to make sure they fit.

There is a company that deals with that sort of thing, you can call them.

Check out their webpage on tech tips too, they have a section on OD transmissions.. http://www.fifthaveinternetgarage.co...counter_3.html

Later, mikey

Be aware that when you click on the Installation Instructions in the link Mikey provided above that the link is in a non-Standard .doc format and will not open correctly in any application using the standard .doc format.

To get it to open so I could read it, I had to use OpenOffice as none of the other applications on my computer could read that particular .doc format.

I pasted a link to a standard webpage, which I just checked, and it worked fine..It has no installation instructions, it's a page of transmission electrical parts..I'm not sure what you are seeing on your end, but the link has a .html extension, not .doc
