You don't have to tell me!!! The tranny was a bull to get in there. It
was a lot of fun connecting the tranny cooling lines. The tranny I
have has the lever pointing down. Any tips on repositioning it in the
up position? The shop manual doesn't go over it and there are no
if i remember corectly ,you neet to remove the shifter from the trans and
flip it over to get it to work reversed for the floor shifter.
it is not a big job if you have a shop manual that has a blowup of the trans
. and i do not mean one of those crappy haynes monuals either. the factory
service manual has a complete trans breakdown.
Had the same problem with the C-6 in a 1969 Cougar. I ended up
taking it to Mr Transmission and purchasing their lifetime warranty
with a rebuilt transmission.
I had a 1981 LTD Country Squire with a C-6 which used to be an RCMP
Ident Car. They rebuild the wagon, with a seized BOSS 302, 3:11 rear
end and the C-6 transmission. I purchased the wagon at auction.
When you hit the gas and put the pedal to the metal, you just about
needed a G-Suit, you were pressed back that hard upon accellleration.
Never had a better transmission.
Not sure what the one in my Ford Ranger XLT 2X2 that thinks it is a
mountain goat and better than a 4X4 with its snow/ice tires on in
winter. Ridge runner in summer in the back country. It rides the
ridges thrown up by the 4X4's as they mud slogged up a gumbo trail
into a mountain lake. It dries hard as rock on top of hte ridges
because gumbo is clay mud. A light truck has no problem running
those ridges same as a small car such as a Datsun 510. Done it when
a forestry 4X4 couldn't get a girl and her dog into a forestry tower
so she could begin her fire watch. Took her in the next day with my
girlfriends car. Tagish Tower, Yukon Territories Canada 1979.
not only check the orientation of the lever make sure its from a floor shift
car. alot of the used C6 trans or from big ford that had column shift. the
floor shift selector on the side of the trans is unique
