    No info there even after looking twice.

    A4LD servos, levers and springs

    OK, so I' m most likely going A and E. These transmissions came from Ford Scorpio 2.9 '87, 2.0 '91 and 2.9 '92. The 2.0 had this "G and G" setup and one less plate in the intermediate and reverse clutch (it also had a 1 solenoid VB despite being '91). Anybody have information on the servo...

    A4LD servos, levers and springs

    Hi, I'm currently rebuilding an A4LD and I have parts available from three different transmissions. The intermediate and overdrive servo diameters were the same in all (AB and BB) and the bands were single wrap, so no choice there. Anyhow, there were 3 kinds of servo apply levers: G,E,A...

    A4LD Valve Body Rebuild Diary

    Maybe the question was a bit obscure, I was wondering the distance that the Sonnax manual valve sleeve limits the movement to. It is possible to wiggle the valve back and forth sligthly even the selector link 991-3 isn't moving.

    A4LD Valve Body Rebuild Diary

    Regarding the manual valve, what is its correct position in Park? I have three A4LD's at the moment which I am studying and building one out of them. They all put the manual valve in slightly different position because of play in the linkages. Is there a measure or a way of telling it from the...

    Fully hydraulic lockup A4LD

    The version of the A4LD discussed in that topic seems to be the original fully hydraulic deal with the modulator substituted by an ECU controlled actuator. Ford did that probably because it was the easiest way to make work with a diesel which has no manifold vacuum. Anyhow, I did some...

    Greetings from the land of 1000 lakes!

    ^ I checked the Ford Technical Information System (TIS) CD, that Transit van transmission is referred as A4LD (not -e). It seems that Ford chose to use the old style version with diesels. That was upgraded with an electronic modulator, and the solenoids left out since there is no manifold vacuum...

    Greetings from the land of 1000 lakes!

    I have found this pagediscussing the A4LDE. Looks like the shifts are fully electronic, there are 6 valve body solenoids and some additional sensors. Not something that I plan to use (at least not until cheap general purpose programmable transmission controllers become available). This is...

    Fully hydraulic lockup A4LD

    Hi all, I'm planning to upgrade my "classic car" (Reliant Scimitar GTE '75) from C3 to A4LD. Making it work is of course part of the fun since not many such conversions exist but of course the OD speed is nice to have on highway... I have two 2wd A4LD's already, one is a 1987 single...

    Greetings from the land of 1000 lakes!

    There is a "no solenoids", 1 and 2 solenoid version out there but the first one is pretty hard to find (mine are the 1 and 2 type so far). I'm going to figure out a way to make it work in an old car but maybe more about that in the appropriate forum!

    Greetings from the land of 1000 lakes!

    Hi all, I registered to this forum mainly because it seems to be the leading source of Ford automatic transmission information :) I have an old british car (Reliant Scimitar GTE '75) with the Ford C3 transmission and I'm looking to upgrade to the A4LD. As a matter of fact, I've already got...
