68 F-100 3-speed manual transmission w/overdrive

Postby sb4boys » Sat Aug 05, 2017 8:01 pm

Does anyone know of a good supplier where I can purchase parts for my 68 F-100 3-speed manual overdrive transmission? The trans tag is C8T3AM-1. The overdrive section is stamped R11-1W. I need to purchase the Solenoid, Overdrive kick-out switch, Overdrive relay, and Governor.

Possible that you only really need the solenoid

Are you resolved to go with the automatic overdrive function? If so, yes, you need the parts you're asking about. Unfortunately, they're not generally available. You have to hunt for them. If you're willing to operate the overdrive with an electric switch on the shifter or on the dash, then you can get by with just the solenoid, and those are fairly readily available. I may have an extra one.

I prefer operating the overdrive with a switch instead of the factory setup, but you have to answer that for yourself.
