Cleaning AOD governor?

Was wondering if I do a tranny flush at school if it will possible clean the governor too? Also, is there another governor I can replace the stock mustang one with to raise the shift points? Lastly, what fluid is everyone using?

The gears kind of stick sometimes, especially OD, so I was just going to do a flush while I still have access to a machine.

thanks
Jeremy

AOD's don't have a governor.

There's a member called "MYLITTLEHO" who has done a complete write-up on cleaning/replacing an AOD governor. Do a search on "governor" and look in the thread called "Strange AOD behavior after fluid change" for the complete article w/ pics.

ANYWAY, to clean it properly, you have to remobe the driveshaft, xmember, tailhousing, and dissasemble it for cleaning. If you have the pan OFF already, to can force air alternating into the gov feed/exit holes at the back of the case. If that doesn't work, you can hand clean the gov without pulling the pan or draining the trans by jacking up of the rear of the car...that way you don't waste the new fluid change.

The thread mentioned would be worth searching for.

How to clean governor:

jack up the car on all 4's, remove the driveshaft, intermediate pipe, place and jack under the trans pan to remove the weight off the crossmember, then remove the crossmember and remove the taillshaft housing...remove the snap ring with inner snap ring pliers and pull off the governor assembly making sure not to lose the steel check ball.



Note the grove the checkball goes into.. the governor can only go on one way.


Disassemble and clean with non-residue carb cleaner (I prefer throttlebody cleaner) and reassemble using transmission assembly lube or vaseline on the valves

How easy is it to take off the tail without dropping the rear of the tranny? I will have access to a lift, so work space will not be a problem.

I'm not sure what you are asking.. you gotta take off the intermediate pipe, the shifter bracket, speedo cable/VSS. Then support the transmission by the pan and take the weight off of the crossmember so you can remove it.. then unbolt and remove the tailshaft housing..

the tailhousing mounts to the xmember, so it has to be removed no matter. If you had a long trans jack for that same car lift, you can press up on the pan to support it to remove the housing obviously. However, if the trans has fluid in it, a shower will come to you unless the rear of the car is much higher than the front.

If I do a gov cleaning, I do it on level ground (I have a lift also), block the front tires, jack up the rear of the car as high as The jack will let me, support it there and proceed.

Do be carefull of the ballbearing....if it falls it bounces a rolls pretty good on concrete Remember to place the valve assembly DOWNward before pulling it off the shaft, then you don't have to worry about the ball at all.
