  1. I have sent my Ford AOD to Monster transmission, Has anyone used these guys and what was your experience? They will be building it to there ss model to hold 600hp/550ft.
  2. Thanks to everyone on there input, I did not mention one fact in my original post, I forgot to mention this vibration I had is with no drive shaft installed just sitting in one place. UPDATE: so what I did was pulled trans. installed bell housing off a fmx to mount starter. then ran engine with just flex plate, Ran Fine no vibration, Then installed converter and ran with just converter and flex plate and no vibration. then installed trans again and vibration is back. I have figured it is something in trans that is the issue. So im sending it to Monster Transmission to have it built.
  3. it sound like I will pull trans and try both flexplates and see what one vibrates first. then go to next part like converter.
  4. Ok, im new to the mustang world so your info would be great. I have a 72 mustang that I bought in pieces, so I found a cheap 351c stock 2v with a fmx trans attached. I never seen or heard it run, I installed and it run great, BUT it had a crazy vibration off idle.so I pulled trans and found it had a new flex plate on it.it turned out to be a 50oz, I replaced it with a 28oz and bam, its fixed. Now I have been driving this for a year and have decided to swap to an AOD, Now here is my issue, the AOD came with a 50oz so when I swapped it out I left the 28oz on because I thought it would vibrate again with a 50oz, now it vibrates again like it did with the 50 oz, So my question is does the engine dictate what weight you need or the trans? sorry about the novel but just wanted to tell everything that has happened.
  5. THANKS EVERYONE FOR THE REPLIES, I HAVE ORDERED THE KIT AND WILL GIVE THIS A SHOT.
  6. yes I am running halogens, I have orderd a NOS light switch. so now my question is how to wire it to a resistor or relay? if I wire through resistor then what size? and where do I wire that at? I have no electrical experience as you can tell.
  7. ok, Im just getting to the point where I am able to drive my car, now on its first run down the street, I have one issue, the lights are on for about 10-15 minutes then just go out. I then can shut them off and turn them back on and they then stay on for about 3-4 minutes then go out. and they just repeat this 3-4 minute intervals. do you think its the light switch heating up? or something else?
  8. just to fill everyone in on what the issue was on this, as I went through all the wiring I found that where the plug in on the steering column is, there were two of the wires pulled out of the plug in just a little. pushed them back in and all is well. Thanks to all for the replies and comments.
  9. Parkka, Thanks, perfect picture that's what I was looking for.
  10. Ok, im still assembling my car and I have started the front clip. I bought this car in pieces as a rusted shell with boxes of junk parts in it and have no other one to look at for a reference, Can anyone tell me where the front fender supports go, I bought new ones but not sure where they go, It looks to me as if they go from the middle bolt where the valance bolts to fender then up to radiator support. does anyone have pictures?
  11. i am also looking at using these two ports as well, so what I did was I baught two identical temp gages and hooked one to each port, there I only 3 degrees difference at all levels of temp, I now have my electric fans on one and temp gage on the other. they both work when suppost to. the fan is set to turn on at 185 and they turn on when my temp gage hits just below 190. works great.
  12. DON, When using turn signals by hand the turn signals all work at lights and dash indicators. these are all new bulbs through out. wires all seam to be connected at lights, as far a grounding goes I have a ground wire from battery to engine but I will have to check on the engine to chassis. as far as under dash connectors I believe everything seems fine except for the wires going to the two curtacy lights, also now that you mention it I don't remember seeing my instrument lights on either. I will have to check those tonight as well when I get home.could all these be connected?
  13. My 72 vert is going together ok at this point but I have installed the tail lights and the turn signals only work if I work the handle by hand, they will blink fine if I do it by hand but don't work on there own, I replaced the blinker relay and still nothing, Also I have no break lights, all other lights work good. do you have any ideas as to what I can check?
  14. LOOKING TO SEE WHAT OTHERS HAVE FOR DISTRIBUTORS AND COILS ON THERE CLEVELANDS, IS WHAT YOU HAVE WORKING GOOD AND IS THERE ANYHTING SPECIAL YOU HAD TO DO TO GET THEM TO WORK PROPERLY?
  15. Don, it looks like the red wire has hash marks not dots. And trans in an fmx. As for the horrible shape of wires, the good thing it the damage seems to all be after the plugs so I will be in search for new wire harnesses after the plugs, I have a couple of parts cars that may have them on there that I know are sitting in fields with no engines in them. I just need to get over there and see if they are in better shape.
