Well, My AOD was junk. I got it and the case was cracked in several places. No matter though. I am thinking of going with a manual. Thinking of going with one of those O.D. Toploaders. Should be a simpler swap then the T5. Will any 5.0 flywheel work for this, or would I need a specific one for the toploader. My engine is ballanced to the 50 oz, so I am thinking the late model flywheel is the way to go, but will it work with an early clutch?
