74 4x4 C4 Rebuild
Hey guys, I'm new here and in the process or rebuilding my C4 and I have a few questions if y'all don't mind. This C4 will be used in a Bronco with mostly street driving and some light trails. It's behind a 306 with a mild cam and is about 300 hp.
I have it disassembled and at the machine shop for cleaning. I bought a full rebuild kit with red Alto clutches. I already drilled the #9 lube hole, and return line passage all the way through to the rear bearing. to 3/16" inch. I also removed the spring and 2 check balls in the pump and plugged the hole. (all great info I got from this site)
Question #1 Do you still recommend drilling holes in the forward and reverse clutch pack housings? (Broader performance says they no longer do that but do not explain why)
Question #2 The clutch disks sent to me do not have the waffle pattern on the 4 disks for the Direct clutch. They are all smooth. Is this something I need to worry about?
Question #3 Is there any other upgrades I should be doing other than a Shift Kit?
Thanks for any help you can give. I'm sure I will have more questions as I go along. Thanks
