    Hi Gregaust.
    I see various posts about Rollerizing the C4 transmission. I am particularly interested in how the #9 was done. If possible could You send Me the info on the particular process. I've seen that You have sent it out in the past, but apparently the posts are old enough where the links are no longer good. My email address is Pablo1668@aim.com Thank You.

    Hi Greg,

    Hoe is life in Australia? I've got a C4 question I hope you might be able to answer.

    I recently sold a rebuilt C4 that went into a '70 Mercury Montego, which sees a lot a city driving. The owner complained the new c4 wouldn't shift back to 2nd after slowing down, as quick/soon as his old tranny did. Since the tranny sat on my shelf for a while, I rebuild the VB off his old c4, in case there was a sticky valve.
    With his old VB the shift behavior did not improve. So now I'm wondering why his old c4 shifted back to 2nd noticeably earlier and under lighter load.

    I did discard a checkball in the lower half of the valvebody/channel casting, as per Transgo instructions (Transgo C4 valvebody ID pdf). Could this influence 3-2 shift behavior?

    Regards,
    Marc Geenen

    Ps, shaved almost 3 seconds of my laptime on Zandvoort after installing adjustable QA1 shocks on my '67 fastback:

    Installing a V8/automatic for highway use.
    MPG is desired, but reliability is required.

    I have a 1967 Galaxie C4 ready for this install, but now
    I have a 1983 C5 from a 200 inch, straight 6 cylinder, 1983 small Mercury.
    Also have a C5 Ford bell housing case mount to a 302 V8, not the transmission, nothing but the bell housing!
    Engine is a 1986 302 inch HO which will be fitted with a 600 cfm carburetor!

    1.) Which should I install, C4 vs C5?

    2.) Would a V8 C5 Convertor Housing bolt up, and then what will need to be done with the six-cylinder transmission clutches?

    3.) Could more plates/discs be added…like a V8 transmission might have?

    The car is a 1965 Falcon with Maverick 8 inch axle, ratio is 2.79.
