It's been a while since I worked the torino. My latest addition is a gear vendors overdrive for my 4 seed toploader. I was fortunate to find a used one brand new never installed. Unfortunately the car guy who owned it had passed before he could install it in his falcon. I dealt with his son and he was excited to see it go to good use. He also is a car guy. He's bringing his father's car back to factory specs . Hopefully the G.V. install goes as easy as they say it is. Thanks Rick

Here's a pic of the Falcon it was going in . The only thing I had to change was the coupler from a 25 spline to a 28 spline.

Nice Falcon. I hope the gv overdrive install goes well and you drive it Louisville. I want an overdrive of my own someday.

Tighten it down until it snaps and then back it off a half turn!

Everything bolted up perfectly. Picking up the drive shaft tomorrow then I have to install the computer but it's plug and play. I'm happy the shifter is in the correct spot for the console. John. ... Start calling Ron every day...Did he tell you he's waiting for a few knick-knacks? That was his last excuse with me. But it will be worth it he builds a great engine. Rick

I had all the pics on my phone then I mistakenly erased the wrong album. So now I can only take a shot of the finished product. I'll snap some shots over the weekend. I just came back from a 120 mile trip with it. It doesn't sound like much but It wasn't enjoyable before the o.d.
