    Does anyone have a parts breakdown of a 58 ford 3speed overdrive transmission, or a link to one. Need it to repair the one in my friends 58 Ranch Wagon. Thanks

    Find yourself a factory shop manual for the car. They have the best information for stuff like this. There's a couple on Ebay right now.

    The Ford Mechanic Ford Service Forum from April 1956...No. 6 is a 39 page booklet on just the overdrive trans complete with exploded drawings and diagnostics. A step by step overhaul procedure. They show up on Ebay for very little money.

    You need to trouble shoot first. Most of the time the problem is external (read: electrical). Does he know how to operate it? Many newbies who never drove one back in the day don't know how to drive one. Old MoToRs manuals had sections on wiring and trouble shooting. I believe it's also been beat to death here.

    Thanks that is just what I needed, Took it apart yesterday, just wanted to see what it was supposed to look like before the damage. That is why The HAMB and its members are the the best. Who needs to buy the book when all the info is right here.
