This OEM 1958 Edsel Transmission Manual is a high quality authorized licensed reproduction of the original shop manual published by Ford Motor Company. If you're looking to work on the innovative and classic 1958 Edsel automatic transmission, this service manual is the first tool you'll want to have. Here is an excerpt from the Foreword of this guide...

"This manual contains complete service information for the automatic transmission used in the 1958 Edsel Cars. Chapters One through Five explain in detail the construction, operation, and all the procedures and specifications required to check, adjust, replace or repair the various parts and assemblies of each transmission and torque converter. Chapter Six describes the operation and the necessary information for the overhaul of the Teletouch control system. Chapter Seven lists the tools necessary to service the automatic transmission as well as the required specifications."

You'll appreciate the detailed, step by step instructions, as well as the multitude and variety of visual aids. There are cut-away views, black and white photos, tables and illustrations included to assist in maintenance and repair. From band adjustments to transmission overhauls, this book has you covered.

With selector buttons located in the hub of the steering wheel. the Teletouch system was something different and offered a futuristic element to those Edsel models so equipped. This manual will walk you through the system. Did you know the famous Teletouch system incorporated a reverse and park inhibitor switch? It was located on the left side of the transmission case. This device prevented the transmission from being placed into P (park) at speeds above 3 miles per hour (mph), or in R (reverse) at speeds above 15 mph. Want to know how? It's in the book!
