AOD shift linkage buy one or fiddle

Recommended Posts

So the age old question, futz or spend the money...

I have my shift rod in and it works ok but not great and I don't want to burn up my trans for something stupid like this. I've seen guys on here that made new shift rods with rod ends which would cost about $40 in materials and I see the store bought ones for about $140. 

The thing about the store bought ones is that they alter the shift lever pivot point/geometry at the transmission, anything that I make will not do that. 

I like the idea of making stuff but some things are just silly to spend the time on when the solution is readily available.

I made my own using one from a 91 mustang.  Modified the throttle end and also made my own geometry correction plate for the FiTech  TBI.

Works great, checked TV pressure and everything in spec's.

I made my kit.  I know that 20 years ago when I did my mod, the kits did not work. They all needed custom modification, so I made my own.  It is real simple and has worked fine for 20 years.  Get creative, make your own!
