C4 transmission rebuild

Got up the nerve to do my 1st transmission rebuild...car is all back together and has a few miles on it. So far, all is well!
Modifications include;
- Broader Performance transbrake valvebody,
- Broader Performance modified 6 disk forward drum/clutch pack, and 6 disk intermediate drum/clutch pack with oil modification
- PA hardened input shaft
There are still a few mods that need to be done, but this should handle my current power level and some of the engine mods that I plan in the near future.

Transmissions aren't that scary once you have been into them. You just got to get up the nerve to get after it. Nice Job!

Thanks guys!

You're right, it's not bad after you work up the nerve!

How would you rate the Broader documentation. What all do they provide and how useful was it for you?

Would you please clarify what exactly you are asking me?

I was assuming that you purchased their kit. Here's how they describe their C6 500 HP rebuild kit:

Finally a complete do it yourself kit for a true high performance C6! This kit comes with all needed soft parts as well as very detailed instructions to show you how to modify your C6 for most any type of application. This kit includes all friction and steel plates, selective style steel plates, stepped pressure plate to add 1 extra friction in your direct drum, Carbon/Kevlar flex band, all gaskets and seals, #9 needle bearing kit, F ratio servo lever, complete thrust washer kit with selective washers, 5 stage shift kit, vacuum modulator, pump bushing, extension housing bushing, heavy gauge deep steel oil pan, filter and our technical manual with several photos and modifications explained even for the novice builder. All modifications can be done with a set of drills and a hand grinder. Please note some prior transmission rebuilding experience and special tools is recommended.
(emphasis mine)
So they say that a novice can use their kit successfully but they hedge a bit saying that prior experience rebuilding transmissions is recommended. Thus, I'd be interested in your opinion as to the quality of the documentation provided. Could a novice actually pull this off successfully?

I'm running a C4 transmission and ordered parts that would handle much more power than my engine is currently making now. As my power level increases, so will the transmission mods.
My purchase included;
- welded 6 disk transbrake forward clutch assembly
- 6 disk intermediate clutch assembly with oiling mods
- transbrake valvebody
Locally I picked up the rest of the parts from a Trans Star dealer in town, besides the PA hardened input shaft, which I picked up from summit racing.
Jay from Broader does supply a spec sheet with recommended clearances, end play and band adjustments with his parts.
A manual that explains teardown and rebuild is a must...just plug in the supplied clearances specs vs. what the manual calls for. A C4 is a fairly easy transmission to rebuild.
Quality of Broaders parts are top notch, and I will be buying from them again! Don't expect to get parts overnight. They are built per order.
I'm as novice as they come...This is my first transmission rebuild. So far, I've put about 200 hard miles on it...Soon enough, I'll have the transbrake hooked up, and we'll see if I've done everything right.

I finally picked up a set of heads. I decided to go with the ford motorsport scj heads. They seem better suited for the cubic inch that I'm running, and room for future growth. Intake is a 4500 series victor. Cam selection is next, along with the switch to E85 fuel. I plan on having a new carb built for the E85.

Suspension and safety upgrades will shortly follow the engine upgrades.

Thanks 82GT, your experience has encouraged me to follow in your footsteps with a first ever (for me) transmission build. I'll be working on a C6 which I don't imagine is much more complicated than a C4.

Motorsport SCJ heads

I was surprised to see how much blending is needed in the exhaust valve pocket.

I've been collecting parts most of the winter, now it's time to start putting this thing together.
The list of parts include;
- Ford Motorsport SCJ heads
- scorpion rocker arms
- Ford racing balancer
- RM Competition (Randy Malik) spec custom solid lifter cam
- Victor intake
- 1050 dominator that's being sent out to Mark Sullens for an E85 conversion
- I still need to measure and order push rods after everything is mocked up
- I've also picked up a new B&M trans pan for my C4 trans
- I still need axles, spool, and drive shaft for safety
