also known as BW8, BW12 and Cast Iron Rambler.

Was used 1956-71 in various Rambler, Studebaker and Packard models. It was known as the BW-8 from 1956-66 and the BW-12 from 1967-up.   The BW-12 was used 1973-74  in some Ford products.   

This was an hydraulically controlled rear wheel drive  transmission. 

It had a cast iron case and an aluminum bell housing.  It was similar to Ford's Fordomatic used from 1951-1967 and FMX which came out in 1968, but few of the parts are interchangeable.

Band adjustments:
Intermediate = ¼" servo travel
Reverse = 1½ turns
