Mustang auto shifter lever to AOD Steel Tube Conversion


New Member

I have decide to make a new shifter rod assembly per Craig's diagram, kindly provided by Horseplay. I went to Speedway racing and purchased these items to start.



I will provide pictures of my progress.

All my new parts in for the new shifter linkage. I am starting to wonder if I should replace the Dog leg arm with the new adjustable arm. I found a person on YouTube who had this lever and was able to dial the shifter positions on the floor shifter. Any thoughts?

Just spoke to Tech Support @ Performance Automatic about the Dog Leg shifter Arm for the AOD. I explained my issues and they came back with recommending I use the Lokar arm in the above picture. He also mentioned, that they stopped making the dog leg, or Hockey stick leg due to manufacturing costs. They will be going back to the Hockey style arm once they locate a cost effective way to make it. The Lokar ATA -1001 shaft and arm with 5/16 slot is on order.
