Speedway Tech Talk - Ford AOD Kickdown
Speedway Motors employee Pat O. takes a couple minutes to talk about the Ford Automatic OverDrive Kickdown kits and brackets available here at Speedway Motors. Pat brought in two Lokar kits to talk about. Both of these kits are designed to run a Ford AOD (Automatic OverDrive) transmission when it is bolted to a small block or big block Ford with a 4 barrel carburetor.
Pat first talks about the return spring bracket kit that mounts on the left corner of the 4 barrel carburetor. That kit has a dual spring that links up to the lower throttle arm of the carburetor.
The other Lokar kit that Pat brought in is the kickdown cable kit that actually attaches directly to the return spring kit bracket. This kit has an arm that also connects to the lower throttle arm of the carburetor, and has some adjusters back on the bracket to set it correctly. That cable is attached to the transmission arm.
With these two kits you will able to properly run your Ford AOD (Automatic OverDrive) transmission. To look at these products, and the other kickdown components available at Speedway Motors, click here.
