Been searching the archives and haven't either found the answer or haven't searched right...
So I have some questions about a Large Case FOM aka a Lincoln Turbo Drive. I have a 60 Premiere and te trans in it is shot (Due to coolant contamination... fixed that problem but the damage is done).
Over the weekend I came across a very low mileage trans out of a '59 Lincoln, I haven't torn into it yet, but assuming I did some basic checks and found nothing in the pan that was scary, short of rebuilding it, do ya think it might be useable after sitting since 1969?
But my main question is, will this be a direct swap into my 60?
Thanks in advance!
That transmission was used from 1958 - 1965 with several variations.
The big one is the output shaft.
Some had a conventional spline, some had an odd ball looking thing with 3 huge splines.
Chances are good it will be a bolt in. Pay attention to linkages etc.
By any chance does the 59 have a push button cable control linkage? If so it won't fit.
One other question. Why not rebuild what you already have? You will replace clutches anyway.
