Estate tow car

Ford Scorpio? Especially in Cosworth form, although the straight 2.9i is a nice combination. It is also at least a nod towards keeping it in the family (Middlebridge).

A4LD into SE6b - is it worth doing?

I was under the (possibly mistaken) impression that Torringtons were not fitted until the early 4R44 boxes which are all ECU controlled? There is a rebuild thread on the Explorer forums where some of the later bits were retro fitted to an earlier box. However, for the 2.8i Engine and earlier 2.9i, t...

A4LD into SE6b - is it worth doing?

The Swiss Middlebridge had a transplant from a late Scorpio. It is the only one as far as I know that runs O2 sensors and a CAT.

A4LD into SE6b - is it worth doing?

One other ID for the later A4LDE box... It has a multipin socket on the side. That gearbox then became the 4R44 and the 5R55 before being discontinued.

A4LD into SE6b - is it worth doing?

From what I have seen so far, all Middlebridge have the first version of the A4LD fitted. This has a cable operated kickdown for identification. All of them are fitted with TCC and the socket for it is at the side of the gearbox, just before the kickdown actuator. It has two pins and contains a diod...

The early 4 speed box does not have electrics to worry about apart from the start inhibits as per the 3 speed box
Yes it does. They all have the torque converter clutch. It's such a shame when people don't connect that up, it spoils it.

A4LD into SE6b - is it worth doing?

Well worth while. It makes it into a nice understressed cruiser if done properly. Many converters can't be bothered to wire up the clutch and so the gearbox can't give its best. It will mate happily with the 2.8 and you will need an SE5a propshaft. You will also need a Scorpio shifter, if you use a ...

Vacuum modulator for se6 automatic gearbox

I can supply many new spares for the C3 and A4LD. Not sure if modulators are available, but I can check Monday.

Just seen this

Interesting post. However, I am aware of things that happened "under the surface" rather than in the public domain that sort of put the tin hat on it.

Nothing wrong with nylon. Just be careful not to kink it and it will be as good as Kunifer.

Manny's 81 GTC

Not too difficult to make a set up for it out of bits. It works out much cheaper too. The lower hose is the difficult one, I think I made that from a 45 degree and either a ninety degree or another 45, I can't really remember. I will have to work it out as I have a Middlebridge that needs doing now.

Auto box change.

I agree that the 6 series go well with the auto box. If you want it even nicer, look for one that has an A4LD properly done, or do one yourself. It makes a really nice power plant.
