We use this mechanical reverse lockout frequently – it’s the easiest and most cost-effective way to retain the reverse lockout feature. This fits the Tremec T56 Magnum, Magnum-F, TR6060, and other similar models.
The Lockout Delete was designed to fit the “Borg Warner” designed T-56 as seen in the picture above.
Wiring the Reverse Lockout Solenoid on a T-56 is a frustrating process on most swaps. Most commonly, builders remove the lockout solenoid or leave the solenoid un-wired which requires the driver to “muscle” through the lockout into reverse. Muscling the shifter into reverse can cause damage to the transmission while deleting the lockout leaves a high risk of accidentally shifting into reverse while driving. The T-56 and TR-6060 Reverse Solenoid Delete is designed as a safer alternative to completely removing or “muscling” through the solenoid. The Delete offers the right amount of resistance to reduce the risk of accidentally shifting into reverse without risking the damage caused by “muscling” the shifter.
The Solenoid Delete will come with one M8x1.25×30 SHCS, one softer spring (a must for short shifters and some relocation cases), and the O-ring needed for installation. The Delete is NOT a lockout and will not completely prevent the driver from going into reverse. As with any modification, care should be taken to understand the limitations and expectations of said modification before installation.
