Not sure about drive shaft but you will need a tv cable( throttle valve) or you will burn it up in a few miles.this cable runs from trans to carb and controls trans pressure

The driveshaft for the swap will be about 49.75" long IF you have a long pinion yoke on a 9".
did many swaps to the 4R70W electronic version of the AOD. Much stronger and feature trans. setup. No deadly TV cable to get just right with pressure gauges and so on.
This is going from the Mach 1 in your avatar anyway.

I had to put a tranny in my 90 ,f150,,so I have an aod to rebuild for the mach1,,I wouldn't mind the electronic shift,,but I have the tranny,, the tv adjustment really is not too bad if you use a pressure Gage to set things up,,I was just wondering the difference in the trans, lenghts,,I think the FMX is about 1/2 inch shorter than the AOD,,hell a longer yoke shaft would do it I think...

Okay, I measured an FMX that I have. From the front flat of the bell housing to the rear flat of the tail shaft extension housing it was 30". Depending on which tail shaft length AOD you have, it will be 30+?" to 31+?" for the same measurement points. So, it is actually L O N G E R than the FMX. Meaning you may have to shorten your drive line. But prolly not given there is always a little wiggle room here for suspension travel.

Are you using the Lokar TV stuff? B
