I updated the monster post again with recent discussion and info on most every topic. I reorganized it and created a contents section which should make it easier to use. Some new info there, so I am shamelessly hoisting this thing to the top.

Not a damn bit of info in this thread anywhere. Great job! Pretty soon, we'll just bind it and publish it.

Werlcome to the board.The doap is a casting code and is not necessarily the build date.Have a look adjacent to the shift linkage there are a couple of smaall cast discs with the month and year.The 70 26x26 c4's are fairly rare.Just check your input shaft to know for sure.

I checked the discs one saids 29 the other saids 69 over a 12,which I would guess means 12/29/69.The tranny came out of a 1970 montero.It looks like It was rebuild or at least serviced in the past and the guy I bought it from said it ran perfect,it was on a 351.The torque converter end of the input shaft is 26 spline, we won't know what the other end is without pulling it apart ,not that it really matters at this point. What kit would you guys suggest or other mods based on this info. Thanks for your help, Mike Sr

You can slide the input shaft out without dismantling the trans.

I'd rebuild it and run it. At that power level you should be good to go with a decent rebuild and a shift kit. If you want to prep for a bit more power, go with the Red Eagle frictions and call it a day. I wouldn't bother to rollerize it or to do the oiling mods (one guy's humble opinion.)
Even though the 26x26 is a rarity, it doesn't matter. Run it. The convertor end is the same as the later 26x24 so the later 26 spline convertors all work.
Good luck.

Can you give me the rebuild kit/shift kit and red eagle #'s or type of kits and a recomendation as to where to get them. Also I have the factory torque converter but no flex plate. Any recomendations on ether? Will the factory starter work with it? Thanks for all your help

Spend a little time on www.bulkpart.com and it will be worth your while. Email me and I'll send you an excel spreadsheet with all the numbers on it. The master kit with Red Eagle frictions was (by now it may be a diff price) $64 and the part number is HP25005R. Master kit includes paper gaskets, rubber lip seals, O rings, pan gasket, metal clad seals, sealing ring kit, friction clutch plates and steel clutch plates. In addition to the master kit you might buy bands, thrust washer kit, bushing kit, pump gears, sprag spring roller kit, a modulator, that ought to do it.....Good luck.
