These trannys are pre-modulator valve (introduced in 1961) and the shifts are actually controlled by the fuel/kickdown linkages as is an AOD (TV ADJ. ROD).

The procedure(s) for adjusting the linkage(s) are in your shop manual.

Good job on finding you had a selector/adjustment problem.

If all of the linkage(s) are now tight, make sure the engine/trans mounts are good to prevent unwanted cradle movement. This will also bind the linkage(s).

That Gearshift Selector Description is from a 1960 FORD Owners Manual.

Here's that pesky Trans Pressure Test Port that i have been unable to verify as of yet-



Here is the using of a pressure gauge on a TWIN-TURBO of the period to arrive at proper TV pressure-

Gary,

What are you looking for regarding the test port? I have a 59 Lincoln SB that states the last 500 Lincolns would have this line installed for use on the assembly line, thus adjustment at the dealer most likely wouldn't be needed. I don't recall seeing a similar one for Fords.

Let me know if I can help.

...sheesh...

I made a reply post earlier today and somehow must have reviewed it and forgot to actually post it...

There has been a question here for some time what this port was. I had remembered reading somewheres that it was a test port for assembly line verification of AT pressure.

I found the TSB you referenced (THANX!) but am positive I also saw it in either FORD or BIRD reference material.

Thanx again for the reference, I have been vindicated...
