Default AOD Install help

I have a 68 coupe with a 351w and I want to put in an AOD. Will the AOD fit right in with the AOD crossmembers that mustangsunlimited sells or is there any other modifications needed to be done for it to fit. I was just told from a shop that they would have to have everything modified to fit and wanting to charge around 2000 for the tranny and install when the tranny is only 1200 itself and crossmember is only 140. thanks for the help!

I just went through this a few months back. Hopefully, you have done some research on the net to find and read several articles, and how to's so you know everything you need before you start.
Yes the crossmember sold by mustangs unlimited will fit without further modification. That's the easy part. Do you know about all the other parts you are going to need? In addition to the properly balanced flexplate, AOD block plate and inspection plate cover, longer transmission mounting bolts, C4 transmission mount, and either pre-formd transmission lines from Classic Tube or the skill to use adaptors and make your own lines, you also need: Lokar TV Cable, Lokar cable bracket, B&M aod lever kit, and an adaptor to hook the TV cable to the carb. If you have a Holley or Edelbrock carb, an adapter is available. You may have to cut your exhaust or modify it to fit with the AOD. I sure did. Let us know if you need more information.

Just to add to the above which I have already done and have an AOD in my 66 that runs great! You may have to have your driveshaft shortened like I did. That's the only "modification" that I know of. Everything else is just buy and installed stuff.

I did the AOD swap into my 66 coupe. didn't have to shorten the driveshaft though...just cut one inch off the front yoke, worked great!

Hello guys, that crossmember from mustangs unlimited may bolt up but it DOES NOT fit because it forces you to modify your exhaust. I have a crossmember that is far better and built a lot stronger and lets you use your stock exhaust. PM me if you are interested please
Joe.
