Question a4ld shift problems

I've got an 87 ranger w/ 2.9L with the auto overdrive swapped in place of the 5 spd.
I really don't want to change the wiring harness if possible.
Is there any way to do this without the harness switch

Thanks for any help

Re: a4ld shift problems

If I read your post right, you're ditching the A4LD in favor of the standard? That's a very smart move as the A4LD's are nothing but trouble. The OD planetary's are known for self destructing and they rarely make it to 100,000 miles before a rebuild. I would take a 5 speed over one of those any day.

No need to change the wiring harness to switch from auto to manual. I don't believe you need to change the harness to go from standard to auto either as the A4LD is not an electronically controlled tranny.
