I only mention this site because it is the best site I have found for looking things up by part number (be sure to use the dashes).

So I've done a little searching around and I can find every part people are talking about except the shift forks. Since most shops are not keen on replaceing parts they did not order (especially Ford) who should I go to for a rebuild with these parts? I also want to install the Quaife differential.

I live close to Washtenaw community college in the Ypsilanti/AnnArbor mich. area. One option would be to go to the local community college and see if one of the instructors is cool with using my transmission for a rebuild in class. The labor would be free, since it is the students who are working on it. . I'd just pay parts. At least, that's what my friend tells me. he is a student there and has had his classmates do work on his 1975 Blazer occasionally.

Any other options in Michigan?

A2 eh? I know where the WCC is, that's where I took my MCAT when I was at Michigan. . .GO BLUE!

Ok, enuff of that, to your question, Call Bill Jenkins up at Signature LM ford or whatever it is, I just ordered the shift forks yesterday, they have them in stock dude, and they're CHEAPER than you'll get at any ford stealership, even though he is one. . .go figure. . .

AS for the quaife, contact SVTCuervo or someone else. . .they can hook you up with a Quaife or Torsen, I would go with the Torsen (maybe contact TorsenRick?) because it isn't as squeamish as the quaife (lots of wander). . .because it has a higher torque bias, like 3:1 vs. the quaife's 2:1.

Talk to Chris (Keyser) about a Torsen.

The shifter forks are a factory FORD part.

If the dealership won't match Bill's prices or a shop won't install them without charging you 100-200% markup then find a new place to do business.

I am sure someone else will want your $800-1000 labor for the job.
Where do you live btw???

When did the Torsen come out? I heard so many good things about the Quaife through this site, but I have heard very little about the Torsen until recently. how much do they cost compared to the Quaife?

Signiature Ford (Lincoln Mercury). I'll have to look them up. Are they located nearby, or would I be paying for shipping?

Right now, I'm just trying to gather information and see if there's a feasable plan to put into action. I know my trans needs to be replaced or rebuilt, but it's doing fine for everyday driving. I just can't let loose like I like to do from time to time. I like the idea of making these reccomended improvements, too. Especially the TBD.

I live in Ypsilanti, BTW. Nice little town, although it's a little rough around the edges, so to speak. Fun place to drive if you know your way around.

Speaking of that, ssmumich00, did you ever take a trip on Huron River Drive from the main st,/M14 area out toward Zeeb rd.? That's a fun route if you can catch it when there's no traffic.

FYI for everyone upgrading parts:

I bought the new shift tower, shift forks, shifter cable ends, and jumper for a total of $239.71 including priority shipping and a 15% charge on overnighting the shift tower. I ordered from Bill Jenkins.

Thanks Bill!

Just a clarification on the part numbers:

Shifter ends are:
YS4Z-7412-JA
YS4Z-7412-HA
Bill's Price for both: $11.62

The reverse sensor that mounts in the tower is:
YS4Z-15520-BA
Bill's Price: $31.91

The tower doesn't come with a cover and Bill couldn't find a part number for it but it is shown in the illistration which is odd.

I'll post how the parts all worked out when I get the reverse sensor.

Here is a pick that bill set me. You may need to save it and make it bigger to see the numbers.
