Usually when you lose one it's only a matter of time before you loose em all...atleast thats been my experience with Ford AODs and 4R70W's.

Today I had to drive my bird in reverse 7 miles back home (no 1st or 2nd, waited too long for a rebuild). Got several funny looks from other drivers and bystanders. I think its time for a new bird, just start fresh and use the 94 auto for parts the 94 5spd i'm looking at
