So I installed the air cooled Fordomatic in my 58' F100 ( I know it's older than the truck). Long story short. After looking at how the bell housing bolts were on the outside of the transmission, as opposed to riding inside the bell housing as is 'normal' and in addition the funky monkey half moon headed bolts that hold the converter to the flexplate screaming at me to put the converter on first....I did just that. When I put the transmission in I could see the input shafts clearly going into the converter. I jiggled the transmission around and rolled the flexplate back and forth using the ring gear teeth with my pry bar until it took both shafts in (yeah that came wrong..). I then worked the transmission until it was flush with the bell housing, started the bolts, then slowly tightened them. I didn't hear any scary "pop's" or "tinks" when tightening the bolts. Obviously if it goes down the road with no issues, no harm.I'm not as well versed as many of you but I have not ever seen an automatic set up the way this was. I do not have a manual for it (no kidding huh?). So I just kind of tried to read the way things were set up and it looked to me like the torque converter was supposed to go on first. Really my question is: Are the air cooled Fordomatics supposed to be installed this way? Or did I screw up and it's cross your fingers time? Regardless I will know soon. A bit under the weather right now, when I'm better I will crack it off and see what's up.
