Need Help

Good Afternoon,
I have a 65 Mustang and I'm not sure what has been done to the transmission. It has a C4, 11 bolt pan. It has NO kick down or modulator valve (hooked up) It's shift pattern is PRN 1st gear, 2nd gear, and 3rd gear. (PRN123) I have to manually shift into the gears. Nothing seems to be wrong with it, goes like hell. I just have followed different kits and "none seem to match up. I was originally done in late 60's.
Any Help I can get will be appreciated.
Thanks for your time,
Walt

you have a MANUAL SHIFT   REVERSE VALVE BODY...


there is no automatic shifting with that type usually...

you can easily revert to an automatic valve body. but you will also need a new detent plate and roller on the spring as yours will be modified..

depending on the brand... those could be fairly expensive...

there are a LOT of companies who have come and gone since the 60's...

got pictures????    use photobucket or imageshack... or some other image hosting site... to post links to the images here..

i should mention that depending on who built the transmission.. a LOT of the other parts might have been left out...

so before you just swap on a different valve body if you want to go back to full automatic shifting.. you are probably going to want to check that the governor is installed under the rear cover..  that the tubes are hooked up to it..   that it's free to move.....

Thanks, that helps a lot. I've ran across articles on the Transgo Reverse Valve Body. I just put some photo's in the Reader's Ride (under RGR81) because she is.
Thanks Again for your time, Wayne.
