My AOD tranny in my 91 T-bird LX (5.0 H.O.) needs to be replaced. I
saw a local ad for an AOD out of an 89 Mustang LX 5.0 for short money
and I'm just wondering if the swap will be possible or if I'll run
into any trouble. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
It should work with no problem. The only "different" AOD was the one used in
Lincolns. They were about 1" longer. Be sure to replace the Throttle Valve Cable
bushing at the throttle body. That's likely what caused your trans to fail. An
brass bushing kit is available from Ford for about $4.
