Default Overdrive cable sheath to tranny clip

The overdrive cable runs down the length of the tranny to the lockout lever where the outside sheath of the cable has to be made stationary so that the wire inside the cable sheath and move the lockout lever.
Does any one have a picture or is able to describe the "clip" that holds that sheath to the tranny ? I think the part # is 353350-S8.....thanks

Post Re: Overdrive cable sheath to tranny clip

The Ill is from the FORD Master Parts Catalog for the period.

There is more than one service part on the assembly.

Where to find? Maybe start here - http://www.vanpeltsales.com/


Maybe a PARTS WANTED AD? It should be out there in someone's drawer or box.

THANX! for posting the source.

The 1949/1959 FORD MPC is available on CD. Just make sure it is marked FORD AUTHORIZED to get the real copy.

Hey zoegrant, FYI: I don't know if you've replaced or removed the original clip yet, but for me, the clip and mounting bolt were much easier to access (in my '54 with the Borg Warner) with the overdrive solenoid removed. If the O/D unit is already out of the car, then of course no problem.



In addition, if you're ALSO replacing the original O/D control cable with a new one, remember that the clamp/clip you're talking about will attach at the fitting that's crimped on to the o/d end of the control cable. This means that wire length inside the sheath (which is longer than the sheath) will have to be the right length for this location in order to reach the lockout lever/arm. I mention this because the kit my replacement control cable came in specified that I cut the sheath and wire to certain lengths for my application, but when I did this it didn't match the original set up. No big deal cuz I used an alternate method of attaching the cable, but though I'd mention it. Hope this makes sense.

The OP should include what make & model of car or transmission. We don't all know what ya got unless you post it. There was more than one overdrive transmission in use in the 50s.
