My 4.6 motor threw rod so I am replacing the motor and transmission with a motor and tranny out of 1995 grand Marquis. The shifting cable setup is not the same. Can it be modified to work for a Thunderbird?
Basically you have to remove the pan, and remove the shift linkage assy. It's not a big job but most people just don't want to work on the transmission. I have done it before on other transmissions. The console shift works backwards if I remember correctly.
