one thing that should be noted (and hopefully i did not just miss) is that the bushing replacement http://www.therangerstation.com/Magazine/winter2007/shifterbushings.htm is not for the 145 tranny:scare: i did buy the parts all of them...o_O. and does anyone know were to get the hole shifter assembly for the 145. as far as i can tell it AINT repairable. "parts in hand" it is one piece:icon_confused:

I recently got a copy of the build sheet for my transmission that includes the shim thicknesses, rotating torques, exploded views, basically everything to tear down and rebuild for anyone who knows what to do with a manual transmission, is this something useful here?

I was going to start a new thread asking which transmissions a 4.0 will bolt up to but if you could just make that part of the website, I'm sure a lot of people would find that helpful. I have a '92 Explorer 4.0 and an '87 BII, not sure if it's Mazda or Mitsubishi but it's a 5 speed.

Yo,
I'd love to see a M50D-R1 rebuild. That could come in handy.

My credo
If you can't go through it or around it, then go over it.
with the few chevy swaps on the board maybe we should include a chevy transmission guide.

I have a couple of real decent pics of the valve body area on photobucket. They are from when I swapped the shifter lever on an AWD Aerostar A4LD to a Ranger/Explorer.








I hope these help you some.

couple of requests:

more exploded assembly drawings: clutch, shifters

the 4ald to manual swaps are missing data about external hook ups, tranny hump plates, driveshaft lengths and configuration (BTW 88 reg cab with Koyo and 13-50 TC is 53 1/2 flange to flange,) no info on pre 84 tranny's with weird bellhousings

PARTS LISTS with ford P/n's

How about info on NV3550 swap from -01 to -04 wrangler? The early bronco guys are using this trans behind small block Fords with an adapter from Advance or others. Ratios seem right and it is rated for small v8 torque. Advance has an adapter that mates to the 1350 t-case.
Input spline count is the same as Chevy, and the output spline matches the 1350. I am doing the homework on this because I am going to swap a 5.0 for the 2.9 in my '89 ranger 5 speed 4wd ext cab, I want to keep it stick shift and the other choices (Mazda or ZF 5 speeds) don't look good. I will document my research on this and will do a write up with pictures when the swap happens.
My other path was a switch to automatic; how about some info on getting a 4r70w to shift with '89 electronics (+ baumann add-on)?

I just wanted to add that when I did my tranny service here recently that Ford is recommending Mecron V on all automatic transmissions now.

how about a pictorial walk-thru on installing a hurst shifter on the M5OD's? i know some of us already have them, every so often someone will ask about the hurst and wonder about the "how-to" of it.

One more thing that should be updated is the info for the M50D-r1HD

The r1HD can be bolted to a OHV and SOHC 4.0, but the r1 cant be bolted to the SOHC. There is an extra bolt hole on the r1HD that allows it to be bolted to either transmission (at the 2 O'clock position).

You can see the there is an extra hole (top left) to accommodate both 4.0 bolt patterns



This is the back of a SOHC 4.0. Towards the right of the centerline of the block, just under the passenger side head there is a 'blank' spot.(this hole would be tapped out andused on an OHV)




Here is a pic of the r1HD bolted to a SOHC. You can see the extra bolt hole for the OHV pattern in this pic.
