96 dodge into 1956 ford

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have a 96 dodge 12v in a 1956 ford truck . No computer, and I was planning on hooking up a computer in it to run the transmission. I have the dreaded 47re . So my question is how do I power up the computer system and what wiring do I have to hook up to make it work? Any help would be great thanks in advance.

The PCM uses a lot of different inputs to shift the transmission.  I don't have a list of them all, but the FSM might.  For your swap, I would be really tempted to trade for an 47RH, even if you need to shell out a little coin you'll be way ahead in the long run.

Why not convert it to a 47rh?  I think it would be pretty easy.

You mean convert a 47RE to RH?  Yes it's possible, but would take a couple things including a RH valve body, RH OD section, and a way to get the different shaped electrical plugs through the main housing.

You could install a manual valve body on the 47RE...
