First post and 1987 Mustang GT AOD Transmission questions
Hey guys this is my first post, i would do a first post in a 'introduce yourself' thread but i cant find one so here i am, I'm 17 and i got a neglected 87 Mustang GT 5.0 Convertible this past December, me and my father ( with a bad back ) are going to restore it this year.
Anyway on to my question, My AOD doesnt have 3rd or 4th gear, so im looking to just buy a used one to swap in and get me around till spring cause i don't have a place to do a rebuild on the current tranny, im looking for a practical bolt in, I've read that 89+ AOD's use full electronic shifting and will not work in 88 and lower Mustangs.
In other words, what year and model transmissions will bolt into my 87 Mustang?, I need to know what to look for, also will a AOD from the 4 cyl motor work with the 5.0? or is it weaker?
