PostSubject: c-6 tranny rebuild   Sat May 02, 2009 8:16 am

i had no problems last time out with my tranny overheating at all. but i think i might of run the pump dry on hells hole. it wines when you rev it up now and in my opinion it does slip when it gets hotter. i have a spare c-6 tranny and i am going to perform a rebuild on it myself. it is only 3 gears (no overdrive) and my older brother has rebuilt th350 before. so he can give me some insight. maybee if anyone can find a c-6 transmission rebuild video somewhere you can post a link. thank you. i have to fix my buggy damage from hells hole first, then i can check the tranny i have in it now to see the extent of the damage. I WOULD THINK IT COULD BE JUST THE PUMP GOING UP THAT IS MAKING THE WINING SOUND. BUT I HAVE TO PULL THE TRANNY TO GET TO THAT ANYWAY. any advice or links would help

Ford Transmissions are notorious for whinning. Its the nature of the beast and most of the time its due to valves getting worn out. I personally have never torn one apart but have owned a couple of fords that have done what your talking about.

sounds like you have good plan. I wouldn't pull it either unless you have to.

do you think this is worth me acquiring for a spare just in case something is wrong with my tranny. it also has my same t.c on ithttp://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140317897131&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT&viewitem=
it doesn't seem like i can go wrong with it, BUT IT IS A 2 HOUR TRIP ONE WAY TO GET IT

well i picked it up. every time i move one of these 205 around i remember how heavy the bastard is 2 . and this one had a c-6 on it. good thing the guy had a forklift to load it for me. i took the transfer case off to make it easier to move at home. the tranny fluid in this c-6 looks crystal clear and bright red. he said that it ran fine and it was rebuilt over a year ago. i am going to check the fluid/filter in mine and make the decision at that point if i am just going to change the whole thing. it should not be that hard to pull the whole tranny out. i will take pics and post them

thanks Von. I may end up going with a built Ford motor instead of building the Chevy 454. benefit is i can run a ford (drivers drop) 205 that can handle the HP and won't require any adaptors. It will be awhile though before I have to make that decision.

here is an update, i removed my trans and transfer case and installed the other tranny, everything seemed to line up great. but i had a 1/16 gap at the bottom of the tranny and engine, so as i tightened the bolts up the gap was lessening, so i was like mbn . until the tranny housing cracked asdyuysigidfdjbisd . i was disgusted and went inside to go to bed....i have a np435 in my garage, i was thinking about putting in it. that would give me a crawl ratio of 52 with the 205 behind it, or a ratio of 72 with the np208 that is on that now. in either case i would have to put a clutch pedal in and a new clutch assembly and change the bell housing on it from a small block to a big block ford.(much cheaper then an atlas) but there would be no more overheating or tranny slippage issues to deal with. IDEAS AND INPUT PLEASE??

well i made a whole bunch of calls today and came up short on finding a stock 460 bell housing to match up to a np435 or a T-18 WHICH I UNDERSTAND IS THE SAME BOLT UP
