4 Speed Auto for 351 Clevo

are there any overdrive Automatics available for the Clevo engine, or is it a matter of getting a turbo700 modified to suit??

Ford AOD. An excellent gearbox when installed correctly (easy if you read about it first). I had one in an XA behind a 351C, and it was great.

Good luck

OMG nooooooooooo.

What next after that? a 10 bolt diff for the back or heaven forbid a 350 for up front?

Go the AOD, don't pollute the ford gene pool

Just like a Tsunami.

How much power can the AOD handle? and i will choose to ignore the statement about the 10 bolt diff and 350 chev.

Re: 4 Speed Auto for 351 Clevo

An AOD like most other transmissions can handle as much power as your wallet can handle. A stock one would be fine up to about 320HP, maybe 350HP. A built one can run in a 7 second race car. There are many build levels in between. Try lentech and baumann engineering web sites for some more info, esp street terminator. Remember the value of the aussie $ is pretty good against Canadian and US counterparts at the moment.

Good luck
