Re C6 rebuild

Hi Frank just reading this post. I have a Lincoln C6 long tailshaft core in the garage , was your reason for not using the long tailshaft just because of the mount as I plan to use a mid plate to mount with the motor plate? Also I was trying to decide on saving the money for a PA sc C4 trans instead of using the C6 but I'm still up in the air on it due to funds etc. I'm trying to map this build out and put a little into at a time as I'm in the same boat as Gearhead with custody issues. I'm just tired of seeing the car sit in my garage and not doing anything to it. I have 0 experience with trans rebuilds but if it can be done with a manual and your guy's great help , I'm not afraid to try. I'm building a fox stang with the usual stroker BBF 9 in , ladderbars , 28 x 13 Firestones. I know the car will weight less than 3000lbs. I'm hoping to eventually run solidly into the 9s maybe faster as the budget allows. Do you think I should take on the C6 build up?

forget the pa super comp trans. it cost 2000 dollars. plus a 300-400 bell. and a c-4 converter. you can use the c-6 converter with a c-4(i have the pa adapter) but ill have around 1000 or so in this c-6 using stock parts. roller bearings cost me under 40 bucks. the heavy duty rear hub is 30. clutchs and steels around 250-300. seals gaskets etc 40-50. and one of franks valve bodys.(which i need to make sure is the correct one!! :cry: ) only thing i need now is the machine work done and im figuring that should be no more then 100! plus if you rollerize it franks way, its full roller. the pa super comp is not! it only has 4-5 rollers in it! and a good c-4 will need all 12 in it to hold up to what i plan on doing. id rather refresh every winter then rebuild and replace parts in a c-4 after a few pass's and street abuse! i already have a billet c-6 converter with plate, 4800 stall! and my c-6 has the deep tci pan already. which is only about 130 or so depending on where you get one. and maybe before i build my turbo terror 385,ill upgrade to the hardened input shaft and billet front drum! which im sure the c-4 wont hold up to!

well frank then heres my question to make sure i have the correct one! on the filetr side i have three that start off with the c8 numbers. but on the valving side they are d2 numbers. im thinking these are not what you need, but it doesnt hurt to ask at this point. and if you can do that for me , id love you forever!

p.s i new this thread was worth the effort !

Gearhead , I can make a transbrake out of the D2AP upper/C7AP lower it's just that you will have to be super careful on postioning the valvebody in the case ( not that hard ) When I find my pic's in my computer of the proper way to check clutch pack clearances using a magnetic base dial indicator I post them

frank do you use the same R servo and E lever in the transmissions you build for mud boggers? what is the ratio on a "K" lever?
