For past # of months I have elicted your help in trying to get the transmission parts to finish my 65 convertible restoration. Thank you, so much for the information most has been helpful. some not....
This is what I have learned and hopefully it will help someone else down the road... Ford put the Dagenham four speed transmission in the 6 cylinder cars fron 1964 -- 1966.. just a few in 1966. The transmission was manufactured in the Dagenham plant in England thus the name. The design is German... Apparently this transmission is not one that is the most valued in our society. It will not take a lot of load. However, i am using a 200 ci 6 cylinder to propel this animal and load is not an issue. .
I was looking for the speedo transmission parts since the begining of time. To-day I got the last of the out standing parts. The speedo (which is listed as the long 1965 - 66 speedometer cable comes complete with the transmission insert. I got the parts from Classic Mustang Conn.... The speedo gears are a 17 gear purple... that I got from NPD. They went to-gether and actually worked...
I had already blocked the speedo hole with a 3 speed speedo cable.. I asked the question a couple of weeks ago if they are interchangable.. The answer is the hole size is the same the length of the gear is not.
From a practical point of view... The Dagenham speedo comes off the passenger side. Thus the "long speedometer cable".
What is most surprising is how one little @@@@@ part can hold things up.
You know after 2 1/2 years of "a car in a bucket" I think this baby may be on the road this spring.... You got to remember the cable $34.00 U.S. and the Gear $2.00 'U.S. cost close to $100 to get across the border. We in the great white north probably should stick to a different hobby as car restoration is very expensive given our dollar @ pennies.... Thanx doug
