Description: This manual contains complete service information for all Fordomatic transmissions used in the 1956 and 1957 Ford Cars, Thunderbirds and Trucks. All the procedures needed to check, adjust, replace, or repair the various parts and assemblies of each transmission and torque converter are included.
In many cases, the service procedures are accompanied by illustrations showing the parts and the operations being performed. Wherever special tools are needed to service a unit, illustrations show the use of the tools. Disassembled views of some of the transmission assemblies are also shown to aid in identifying the various parts and their relative position in the assemblies. Where new procedures are introduced for the first time on the 1957 Fordomatic, they also apply to the 1956 model.
The descriptions and specifications contained in this manual were in effect at the time the book was approved for printing. The Ford Division of Ford Motor Company reserves the right to discontinue models at any time, or change specifications or design, without notice and without incurring obligation.
The new Fordomatic transmission was available, as optional equipment, for all 1955 Ford cars, including the Police Interceptor Unit, Station Wagons, Courier, and Thunderbird, and F-100, F-250, F-350, and P-350 trucks. The unit is basically the same as previous transmission models, but has certain improvements.


The manual is arranged in seven chapters as listed in the Table of Contents:

Chapter ONE describes the construction and operation of the 1955 Fordomatic transmission and torque converter. Diagrams showing the positions of the gears, clutches, bands, and servos in the various ranges are given in this chapter.
Chapter TWO covers the operations necessary to maintain and adjust the transmission. Service specifications required for each operation are presented here and should be closely adhered to.
Chapter THREE gives all the steps that should be followed in diagnosing Fordomatic troubles. The procedures for correcting the troubles are also included in this chapter.
Chapter FOUR contains the procedures needed to replace the subassemblies in the transmission, and to replace the transmission either with or without the torque converter. These are removal and installation procedures only.
Chapter FIVE gives complete overhaul procedures for all transmission parts except the torque converter. It is important that all operations be performed correctly and completely.
Chapter SIX covers the overhaul procedures for the torque converter.
Chapter SEVEN contains diagrams showing the fluid flow through the hydraulic system in the Fordomatic transmission. The torque specifications and the special tools needed to service the 1955 Fordomatic transmission are given here. [View Product Sample]
