1983-1991 5.0L TV Rod for AOD Transmission-2V or 4V carb

from 135.00

This sale is for a NEW AOD transmission TV rod for a '83-'91 Ford 5.0L Mustang and other Fords with this engine and transmission that utilize either a TV rod ('83 - '85 year models) OR a cable ('86 to '91 year models) to maintain transmission operating pressure and initiate kickdown of the AOD transmission to the lower gear when "passing gear" is desired. Please select either 2V or 4V when ordering.

THIS PART IS COMPLETE AND WILL CONVERT THE CABLE VERSION AOD COMPLETELY up to 1991 year models. NOTE: If your cable presently goes over to the right side of the engine as viewed from the drivers seat, THIS TV ROD CANNOT BE USED. IF YOU ARE INSTALLING AN AOD INTO AN EARLY MODEL FORD CAR (PRE 1983) THIS TV ROD WILL HOOK YOU UP PROPERLY!

The lever that the TV rod comes with simply replaces the cable lever (if it is a cable version setup) completely and the trunion adjustment to set the transmission pressure is easily accomplished when following the adjustment procedure. Entire assembly is made of SS.

This setup is especially desireable for those who wish to convert to an AOD transmission but want to be rid of the complexities and unreliable nature of the cable version setups.

Instructions on setting/adjusting the TV pressure are included with the rod. 

Full sized Fords and Mercurys will also apply if they have this engine, transmission and a 2 or 4 Barrel carb or the CFI unit. 

This rod and all of its parts are made of stainless steel and will remain elegant looking its entire life...It will not rust.

Delrin bushings, both at the carb/CFI unit end and at the trunion pivot, insure smooth and positive operation and are far superior in function/design to the spongy, snap in bushings of the stock OEM design that deteriorate and fall apart and can cause transmission failure due to transmission pressure NOT being held properly in adjustment by the TV rod/cable.

It is recommended that a return spring kit be used to provide upward pressure at all times on the TV rod to maintain proper operation. Find them here: http://www.kickdownrods.com/shop/kickdown-rod-return-spring-kit

The end bushing at the CFI or carb end (if a carburetor is installed) is a permanently installed Delrin bushing.

The correct rod retainers are included with this rod.
