1956-57 Fordomatic Automatic Transmission Manual
This manual contains complete service
information for all Fordomatic transmissions used in the 1956 and 1957 Ford
Cars, Thunderbird, and Trucks. All the procedures and specifications 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, 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.
