Question J-mod, do you drill holes in separator gaskets or not?

In valve body modifications instructions by A-Train, Step #10.

The instructions are to line up the gasket over the separator plate and make sure all holes match up. In Setup #11 the instructions are to install gasket over main body then install separator plate.

Do I need to make/enlarge holes in the gaskets as well?



Another thing that is puzzling me is A-Train's use of numbers throughout this article. In Setup 11 he says "install the new separator plate gasket (7D100) onto the valve body," that 7D100 is no part number, nor does it refer to any picture or anything?

If the holes in the gaskets are smaller than the plate holes you drill out, then the gaskets would restrict the flow. There'd be no point in drilling out the holes in the plate! I just installed a TransGo shift kit in mine, & had to drill out several holes in the plate. Very similar to the j-mod. But the gasket holes were plenty big enough, & didn't need drilling.
Not sure where the 7D100 # comes from. But you should be able to get the right gasket from your local Ford dealer.
Don't forget to check your 1-2 accumulator. If it's the aluminum type with the 2 thin o-rings, you'll want to replace it with the later design. (p/n F7AZ-7F251-AA) Made ALL the difference in the world in mine.

Hope this helps,
Mike

I'm doing j-mod for Lloyd330. We gonna do his 96 cougar first, and week or two later my 95 vic.

He desided to change these parts:

Quote:
1-2 acc. F7AZ-7F251-AA
1-2 TOP SPRING F75Z-7F284-AA
1-2 BOTTOM SPRING I AM NOT GOING TO DO
2-3 ACC F7AZ-7H292-BA (MIGHT BE -AB, I WILL DOUBLE CHECK)
2-3 SPRING I AM NOT GOING TO DO
SEPERATOR GASKETS XW7Z-7D100-AA
F7AZ-7C155-AA
NEW FILTER F6AZ-7A098-A
COVER ?
GASKET F2VY-7A191-A
Please tell me if that looks correct? Does he needs the 2.7" OD servo?

Again, that be stock 4R70W from 1996 cougar...

That parts list looks right. I didn't change the O/D servo on mine, & putting it back in after removing it can be a pain. I accidentally removed mine, so I know! I suppose it depends on how many miles your car has on it, & how worn the servo is.
