Automatic Transmission Rebuild


#1

We changed gears (get it?) for our latest Redline Rebuild time lapse. The inner workings of the automatic transmission are a mystery to most, so we decided to crack one open and show you what lurks inside. After scraping out some funky brown sludge and giving it a thorough cleaning it was ready for new clutch packs, seals and gaskets. Reassembly was a bit tricky, but we managed to get everything sorted and our ‘62 Ford Thunderbird is back on the road.
