That CL one looks nice and shiny with that new coat of paint. I used to sell used transmissions, would only sell those as good that I knew first hand were good. Was a PITA and worse when you sell them cheap. Everyone is concerned about it not being a good transmission and honestly I can understand why. If I am going to sell one now I will take it apart, go through it and sell it as a rebuilt with a warranty.

He is better off rebuilding what he has and know what is in it. If the surface rust is too much for comfort get a core for $50 - $100 and build that. 4x4 stuff is no issue, just swap the output shaft and tail housing.

every surface in there had corrosion or some kind of rust. all the clutches and gears. its funny you would say that its the worst you"ve ever seen. because that just happens to be my luck lol. why me! i just wanna rebuild it and drive my car lol. everyday i just see it sitting there. anyway that craigslist ad is mine lol. its the last one i bought that was rebuilt but too short. i should have just kept it haha. i cleaned it up and painted it. internals looked great when i opened it up and fluid was fresh as ever. sold it to a new member for his tube chassis car hes building. anyway as far as the roller clutch races they looked fine. it was actually quite easy to take apart. took alot of photos. me and my friend had it apart in a hour with some slacking off. i found a couple of 4x4s that have been rebuilt so thinking about picking one up and switch out the tailshaft. just have to find that deal. yeah that would be nice getting a cheap core. i could use it right about now. and to think i thought i would have this done by the weekend. guess im pushed back a bit. whats the difference in the kits after 1976? my kit is 1977- up. thanks for the replies guys!

Here's a donor core for $65

http://southjersey.craigslist.org/pts/3712793052.html

Of course spend a little time can do better. Use your case and best internals between the two and you are set. Just make sure to set you end clearance...

Ford changed from lathe cut seals (square face) to those lovely lip seals in 1977.

Don't wait too long, cruising season is coming! I actually had my 64 f100 out today to try out my overdrive that I installed over the winter. It was amazing driving 120 km/h and revving 2400rpm, at 100km/h she was 2100 rpm. Now I can cruise with my corvette buddies.

Well he is going to scrap it anyway, maybe you can get it for $50 to pay for the tolls and gas. LOL

Carlisle! Used to go there when I was a young man. Nothing like walking miles in the hot sun carrying a bunch of heavy stuff you bought. Best day to go is on Friday. Once went on Sunday, what a waste all the good stuff was gone, but can get deals on junk vendors are tired of lugging around. All the really good stuff changes hands between vendors before the show starts. Knew a guy would rent a space just for that reason.

Now a days between E-bay, Craigs List, and sites like this does not make much sense to go to swap meets except to socialize. Have not been to a swap meet or junk yard in years.

Yeah i think ill make a trip down there to get it regardless. Yes carlisle! We live about an hour and a half (hour if you go fast) away. Been going there since I was a kid. My dad is a galxie nut and knows everyone lol. I dabble... we usually go and stay for a couple days every year for spring swap meet and of coarse ford carlisle. Love the burnout contest. Its actually where I got my wagon about four years ago.

I'm going to get a core trans tomorrow right over in jersey. Hopefully all goes well putting it back together. Can't wait to get started.

So I got the another trans. Took it apart tonight. And everything seems a lot nicer and in way better condition than mine was. But I didn't find some broken stuff. First off I took the pan and valve body out. I immediately found pieces of a broken plastic washer (1st picture). So kept going! When I took the servo out it was filled with sludge. Then I took the pump out and all the forward assembly out. When I got to the sun gear shell I noticed the back side was eaten up and scored. So I took some measurements between the two. Mines on the left and the trans I just picked up is on the right. My clutch pack clearances on the high reverse hub were about 0.109, vs the clutch pack from the new one were about 0.066. So thats about as far as i got tonight. I can go no further now considering I had to return the snap ring pliers I boroughed. Will have to get them tomorrow and finish tear down. Think ill be using a lot of parts from this donor, they are in way better condition than mine. Only thing I'm thinking I can't use is the sungear shell. Any input on where this broken washer came from would be great. Also can I use the band from the new one? It has no heat marks and seems new and smooth on the inside.

The guy said he lost 3rd and started losing 2nd gear. So I'm trying to figure out why? And how? So far a plastic washer broken and sungear shell got chewed up on reverse planetary gear. Thats what I got. Tomorrow when I get the tools I need ill get out the clutches and see how they look and get the tailshaft out and what not.

Only plastic washer on a C-6 is between the stator support and direct drum and that thrust washer in your hand is metal. It looks like the thrust washer that goes between the sun shell and rear planet. Would explain why the rear planet face is scored up. You likely will need to use a different rear planet and if the sun shell is scored up same deal.

When the washer broke and fell out it likely allowed the direct and forward drums to move around on the stator and lose the ring seal. I'd inspect the drums bushings and sealing surfaces for wear.

If the band is not broke, the lugs are tight, no cracks, and the friction surface looks good reuse it. Clearance on the direct drum has a factory spec. of .022"-.040" so .066" is a bit loose and .109" is a lot. My find some burned up clutches in that drum.
