Ford Transmission Repair Book, 1960-2001

This book by Australian Max Ellery is a great resource for anyone interested in rebuilding, or understanding, the inner workings of their C-series Ford transmission, FMX, or AOD. The book also covers manual transmissions (T5, TopLoader, SROD.)

At $15.72 it is a bargain.

That's a hell of a book to cover all those trannys.

I have the same question as FE. Does it have diagrams of the different VBs showing where the check balls go? Does it have torque specs for all bolts, not just random ones here and there? How about an exploded view of the subassemblies so you know things are going back together right? Basically I'm just curious if it's any better than the Haynes manual or if I should hold out for the holy grail that is the out of print factory service manual.

I think I'm going to buy it regardless... I'm one of the Fartest Smellers I've ever met when it came to mechanicing... Hell I rebuilt my first engine at he age of 13 and was repairing televisions at the same time... A tranny will be undaunting at this stage in my life! After all, I'm now 18 and Know EVERYTHING about ANYTHING..... Except trannies... LOL

I have to build this FMX I have and this book will help tremendously!

P.S. Thanks Mysterious Admin Person... I think.... lol

I was disappointed in the small picture, but they were all pictures! No drawing to deal with which I liked.
Still not a fan of converting torque numbers…

Nice addition, but wouldn't want to be my first and only rebuild book.

There is also an ATSG manual that shows check ball locations for the many trannys too.

I have this book. I'm curious as to how a book published on May 1, 2003 can cover transmissions through 2007?

I also have the Haynes book and thought it was better.
