I have a 1959 Edsel Ranger with a 292 ci Y Block. I have the stock manual 3 speed T85 transmission. I am looking to add an overdrive to this transmission, and I have read that there is an R11 overdrive that will bolt up. Is this possible and where can I source it? Thanks
I am considering having a Mitchell overdrive installed in my 1936 Ford Phaeton Deluxe. When I got the car, it had already been converted to a 12 volt system, and it had been fitted with Reds Heads and dual exhaust. If I have the overdrive put in, will this have any effect on the value of the car? Also, does anybody have contact info for Mitchell? Thanks, John
I have restored a 1939 Chrysler Royal Coupe with the original Borg warner O/D. I hooked up the shifter and was able to go through all gears and reverse. The shifter Cable is moving fine. I can see it is compressded and tha it returns when the shifter is taken out of the pulled back position. I have had the O/D cable out (Disengauged) the entire time. Suddenly yesterday I can not get the car in reverse or second. Could the linkage messed up "unadjusted" How do I diagnose this issue? Second question... I filled the O/D with Gear oil. it has been in there a while 6-12 months. I have since found out that there is special oil for the Borg Warner O/D. After I drain the O/D how do I flush it? or should I just drain what I can of the Gear oil and pour in the right O/D oil? Third Question.. In all the articles I read about a cut in govener. I do not have one of these nor is there a place on the O/D unit that is open that looks like I need one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I am a brand new member of aaca. I just got a 1936 Plymouth 4door deluxe. Does anybody know about putting an overdrive on one of these? I would like to keep the original 3 speed tranny and bolt on the overdrive unit. If anyone has done this with good results I would be interested to know which overdrive unit you used. Thanks very much!
