  • Transmission Shift Selector Seals

    Gary ~ KULTULZ, sent me a graphic to post of the Tranny Shift Selector Seals. Since it applies to the '60 Squarebird, and a '64 Flairbird, I decided to post it here and also put it in the TRL. Here ya go.

    Here are the seals that I got from Rock Auto. The ATP part number is FO15. They're a whopping $1.49. You might want to post them with the diagram.

      ATP TRANS PARTS-

      ATP is a good professional source. At least you don't have to buy a complete seal kit (most likely as a convenience to the seller) to find simple seals.

        Just how difficult are these to install? I have my transmission out now with the pan off. Everything looks quite good inside but I think it would be smart at this point to change all the seals.

          On this page- http://www.charlietranny.com/Fordomatic%20seals.htm

          ...are instructions for replacing the seals.

          Your Shop Manual will also detail it.

            If you have your COM out, I can't imagine putting it back without doing the seals and cleaning it inside and out.

            #58 shows the detent that needs to be removed. This seal is usually the first to go because heat hardens the rubber. It's also the one that transmission shops DON'T change because it's a little tricky to do. - Dave

              Thank you both for the help and advice. The trans has but a few hundred miles since it was rebuilt but has been sitting for a number of years. Obviously the seals are prone to degrading without use. At this point I will change front, rear and selector level seals.
