Good thread! I am in the middle of building my towing C6. I have collected 5 Big Block C6's from different vehicles.

Any major differences in the cases ? Some have the ribs and some do not..
I have several servo covers but all the same levers..

What do we look for to get the good stuff?
What apps had the most clutches etc?

When in doubt, throttle out...

i just pulled apart my lincoln c-6 donor(i needed the case) and found a c7/c8 valve body that frank needs to build my trans brake valve body. i got a 4 pinion rear planet!
but this one only had a 3 clutch front drum! :?:

the sb-6 i took apart yesterday didnt provide and good stuff.(its a 80 model trans!


i still have to pull my trans back out of my car, and see what all it will provide!

now i plan on doing a complete build thread on this, and this is just a information gathering thread at this point!
So lets I.D. some of the parts frank is talking about!

Reverse Planetary carrier (sitting in it's hub)
4 pinion


3 pinion


Low Reverse Clutch piston (the 2 different ones i have found so far)
Old style piston(the one you should use)

notice the check ball!
old style piston springs and retainer

there are more springs then that!

and this is where the check ball should in when piston is installed!

12 o'clock, valve body is too the bottom pf pic!

newer style piston

notice lack of check ball!

and its spring assembly




Keep in mind, i have never do this before, so if i mess up its ok!

The factory installed the piston with the check ball at the 6'oclock position ,this was to take the clunk out of(the driveline) firing the motor up and pulling it in reverse on high idle(as the oil would drain out of the low piston over night ) on perf builds put the check ball at 12 o'clock, must people don't care if their race car clunks the driveline when they put it in reverse

No mod's neccesary to the case. except cut off the 2 ears that stick out on the bellhousing (interfears with some headers) ,put the breather on the top of the case and tap 1/8 pipe and put a barb fitting for a vent hose

im going to throw my noob question in here....



Got a '79 F150 with the C6... i want it to handle some good power and abuse. I want to get the motor rebuilt to around 500hp/700ft lbs at the MOST... thats if i feel like getting frisky, but i bet it will be more around the 400hp/600ft lbs

What do you do to these trannies to beef them up?? Ive seen re-build kits out there but come up short when looking around for kits to beef these things up.


and what makes a beefy tranny beefy???

You have the Beef!, "79 F150 460 auto ,one of the fastest trucks ever produced. Had a customer back in '79 bought a new F150 Lariet,on the" PDI " I change the lower crank sprocket , he drove it to the race track with 200 miles on it and it ran 13.60's with a set of used oval track tires
