PA AOD and 4R70W Pro Pumps
Performance Automatic has added two new “Pro Pumps” to their extensive line of transmissions and components. With the ever-growing popularity of the Ford AOD and 4R70W transmissions, Performance Automatic felt the need to release its AOD Pro Pump, PA53436, and the 4R70W Pro Pump, PA45436, to the performance-minded. Starting with the best cores, Performance Automatic checks for proper pump bushing centerline. The pump gear pocket is examined for correct depth and the pump gears are sized to Performance Automatic specs. The stator housing is reconditioned and machined for a thrust bearing. This eliminates the plastic washer that often fails due to excessive rpms. Modified stator rings are installed as well as a new pump O-ring and gasket. These Pro Pumps are direct replacement parts complete with roller bearings suitable for any rebuild. PA53436 AOD Pro Pump fits all AOD transmissions up to 1993. The PA45436 AODE/4R70W Pro Pump fits all AODE and 4R70W transmissions from 1994 to 2004. To find out more, please visit www.performanceautomatic.com.
Boom Mat Introduces Leather Look Sound Barrier
