For the tranny people.
Can an AOD be tested while out of the car? I have purchased a used one and would like to know if I or a tranny shop can verify its condition without having to tear it down.

Too bad you aren't near, they are actually very simple to tear down and reassemble, at least for me after doing a few. Pull the pan and check for the obvious: clutch material, metal pieces, and burnt fluid. If none of those exist you will probably be ok.

Fluid looked brand new filter okay no shavings. Trying to get it ready for my 69 to replace the C4. Is my drive shaft going to need to be modified?

What's been stated so far is good. There is a set of 'air' tests you can run but you have to have an AOD 'test plate'. They run about $130 or you can make one. You can still test a few of the clutches without it if you have a rubber-tipped air gun.

As far as the driveshaft? The AOD requires a 1" shorter yoke. If you are thinking about keeping the C4 around then go to a junkyard and get and AOD yoke. Otherwise you might have to cut the last 1" off of it. TEST FIT yours first.

The conversion kit that CJ Pony parts offers comes with a new yoke I suspect that is probably why. The tranny was in a fox running 11s on a big shot of NO2. It has a fairly new Dayco 3500 stall non lockup. Still has the shifter cable and TV cable attatched.
