P.S. I'll be gone hunting until Nov 5

C6 VB

Frank, I would like to have one of your vale bodies for a foot brake car. I had a really good C6 that I ran for 3 years, that was built by a shop in Dallas, Texas. The man that built that transmission died, and I had it rebuilt by a good shop, but they are not the world's best C6 shop. They did not like some of the mods the man in Dallas had performed. First time out after the rebuild,I knew the trans was not as good as before. The 1-2 shift was so slow that the front end unloaded causing a loss of traction. Called the shop and he had me shorten the modulator pin .060. That worked and got me thru the season, but I would like to get the trans back to the performance I had originally. Can you build me a foot brake VB?

1967 Falcon, rectangular frame, 2800 lbs w/driver, Ronís injection, C6, 4.88, 14.5 x 32 tire, 4 link, 4.5 bore A460 block, 4.3 stroke, Edel heads. 60' is 1.26, 1/8 is 5.82 @ 118

Hey John you need a hand with that c6 I've built a tranny or two........ You could just use Franks vb and not use the brake. In fact the sol is in the pan so by not using the wire you would never know its there.


Hmmmmmmmmmmm.......... :idea:

79-6.9 , '67-'71 early '72 C6's anything that had an FE ussally had a c6 , will take VB's with C7AP uppers /C7AP lower halfs. I can't use them for Transbrakes but I can use them for Manuals
