Toploader 4 Speed Parts
This is a full service 4 Speed Toploader shop. We do not do this part time or as a hobby or sideline. We are here full time to answer questions for you or provide anything you need for your Toploader.
- The toploader 4-speed transmission is of the fully synchronizer type with all gears except the reverse sliding gear being in constant mesh. All forward-speed changes are accomplished with synchronizer sleeves instead of sliding gears.
- The Shelby American work order specifying “Build 427 Street Cobra CSX3178” was opened on January 7, 1966, and closed on March 3, when it was shipped to Carroll Shelby’s Dallas home sporting a 427 with dual quads and a 4-speed Toploader transmission.
We have used years of experience in analyzing wear patterns and part failure in original Toploaders to improve quality and reliability of the replacement parts. We use all the special Ford tools required during the remanufacturing process. Since we only remanufacture Ford 4 Speed Toploader Transmissions, you can be confident in the caliber of our service and product.
After years of remanufacturing 4 speed Toploaders, we have found that acceptable used 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears are few and far between. Typically, if the gear needs to be replaced, the associated synchronizer assembly also needs to be replaced.
