AOD Always in Forward Gear

I have a 1985 Ford AOD transmission that I took to a repair shop to have him check everything out, install a Baulmann shift kit and fix the parking pall because it would not lock into park before. I was told the tranny looked fine, a new parking pawl was put in and the shift kit installed.

After laying on my back most of a Saturday at 100 degree temperatures putting the tranny in with a new Road Runner 2200-2600 stall converter, I have a major problem. By the way, this tranny is sitting behind a rebuilt 302,

The transmission is alway in gear, even in park. When I try to rev the engine, the vehicle lurched a little when its in park like it is trying to go and there is a heavy load on the engine. I have no neutral or reverse. Like I said it is always in gear. I am taking the vehicle back to the repair shop to have it fixed, but out of curosity, I am trying to find out what they did to my transmission. It is worse than before I took it to them.

Thanks......

In case anyone is wondering or comes across the same problem, the mechanic forgot to put back in the pin or nail as he called it that connects the shift lever rod to the shift linkage inside.

Re: AOD Always in Forward Gear

did you ever figure out what was wrong? AOD has 2 input shafts and one of them was locked to the convertor
