Re: 41 Ford engine help

A fuel pump that looks new does not make it a good one. Sounds like you have very low fuel pressure. Blockage or leak in line from tank bad pump... Need to check fuel pressure for 2-3 psi.

Re: Aod in 1950 ford 8ba

Also, the electronic transmission (4R70W) is virtually the same as an AOD internally so the wide ratio planetary gears will interchange into the AOD. The W in 4R70W stands for wide ratio.

Is the whole car there? If so pull a light bulb and apply 12 volts. See if it lives.
