As if I didn't already have enough work to do with the SHO
build, the trans in the bruise decided to take a poop back in May, two days after the TWS run.
I found an AX4-S from a '93 SHO
over on Fordbastards for the measley amount of $50.00. I took a drive up to DFW a few weeks later, picked up the trans, a gen2 CF cowl hood and 2 sets of SFCs from TexanTony and SHOMurph.
Anyway, since this thread is about the trans build let's get to it.
We've been down here dickin round with the idea of sending both units up to FPS/Doug Louis, which would be SUPER expensive!!! Steve can afford to send his, but I cannot, sooo, I saved up some $$$ and ordered a full rebuild kit, shift kit, lube dam kit, solenoids, E40D sprag, 25 spline shaft, a couple of new bands, and a steel front piston, and finally some red assembly goop. About $580.00, And you certainly can't beat free labor!!! So today, I went to Northern Tool, got me another engine stand and fabbed me up a trans fixture and got it mounted. Tonight I was able to remove the servo covers, and both pans. Thus far it looks pretty clean, there has been some water in there from sitting, but I don't know if it's from my place or the prev. owner's. I'll get some pics tomorrow if I get a chance. I'm supposed to help a neighbor friend strip a Honda Accord to make ready for scrap. Pull engine/trans/cradle/strut assembly, whop hole in gas tank, and tow away. Shouldn't be more than a few hours, so hopefully I can make progress on the trans.
