I am planning on doing the J-Mod nex time I change the transmission fluid (in about 7,000 miles), and was looking at the tech article to see what parts I need to get, but it's not very clear what ones I need. I have a '99 GT Transmission in my '95 Cougar. The only parts that I KNOW I would need are the seperator plate gaskets... Any other parts I need to get to do the J-Mod? Should I get a new plate, or just use the one in the transmission?

Thanks

Spare plates are rather tough to come by. Get a filter, the 2 gaskets, mercon V, the springs and accumulators, and the toughie: the drill bits. Everyone seems to have a tough time finding them... I just looked up the local industrial supply store and bought all the ones I needed. :2huh: Check the other 2 articles on top besides the 101 article... there should be all you need to know there.

You may already have the updated 1-2/2-3 accumulators, and depending on what you are trying to accomplish, you current springs may work fine. I picked up my Hanson numeric bits at the local ACE hardware.

You WILL need these, minimum:
New filter
New pan gasket if your is not reusable
Both plate gaskets
Your selected drill bits
13 quarts of Mercon V (maybe a little extra to be safe...)

Having a '99 transmission, I would think I have the updated accumulators... Mostly, I just want a much faster, firmer shift.

None of the places here in town had all the ones I needed. I went ahead and used McMaster - Carr. I don't remember if it was A-Train or someone like that that had posted the link long ago.

A little tricky to navigate, BUT, they do have all the drill bits. You can search for them by index number (like in the article)...but ya gotta get to the 'drill bits' screen first.

Their prices are pretty cheap and they deliver quickly.

Hope that helps somehow.

For the drill bits? You can also flag down one of the tool supply trucks (ie:SNAP-ON, MAC, MATCO, etc) that service your area car dealers. The local Snap-on dealer had a set of # drills and just sold me what I needed. I think it was @$15.00 for 8 bits and there was no wait and no shipping!!! If you've got a home shop (and the need for new drill bits), SEARS carries a couple of different indexes for @$50-70.........
