    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:

    1965
    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.
