Re: 74 4x4 C4 Rebuild

Yesterday I removed the Modulator and replaced the pin with the longer pin that came in the shift kit. Second gear now comes in later and right where I like it. The 2-3 flare seems to be gone. I...

Re: 74 4x4 C4 Rebuild

Got the Trans installed and I have no leaks and all gears. It shifts really quick into second then has a split second Flare or rev from second to third. I used a TCI 2000 stall converter so I think...

Re: Only have first gear

That Vacuum sounds good. Have you had any work done to it lately or has it been sitting for a long period of time? How does the fluid look and smell? Does it have high miles?

I would drop the pan...

Re: Only have first gear

I would look at the Modulator Valve on the back of the trans first. Make sure it has full manifold Vacuum and that the pin is installed correctly. I had the same problem once and it was a burnt...

Re: 74 4x4 C4 Rebuild

The pump rings checked out perfect. Better safe than sorry.

After I installed the Valve body it seems like my kickdown linkage is not pushing the valve in very far. The valve is free and can push...

Re: 74 4x4 C4 Rebuild

Thanks, I will test fit the rings just to be sure. One question on the Valve Body and shift kit install. The 2-3 backout valve has a spring that goes in last and rides against the plate. Do I need...

Re: 74 4x4 C4 Rebuild

Yes and Yes, I followed a Post you did on how to set End float. My Thrust washer kit had 5 selective pump washers and I used one that was snug but not super tight.

Re: 74 4x4 C4 Rebuild

Well I'm close to the end of my rebuild. Everything went smooth. I really took my time and made sure everything was correct. Before I started my endplay was 0.041. I used all new Thrust washers and...

Re: 74 4x4 C4 Rebuild

If I buy a Sun Gear & Sun Shell from a 1981-86 C5, Would it fit without any modifications? The one I'm looking at has 4 holes at 3/32 in the gear. Thanks again

Re: 74 4x4 C4 Rebuild

I used the 0.080" snap ring from the Belleville spring in the spare trans. Now I have 0.30 clearance in my new forward clutches.

If I buy a kit to add 1 friction disk to my High reverse clutch,...

Re: 74 4x4 C4 Rebuild

I do remember now that the forward was a O-ring (round cut) and the same size as the old one. (just a hair smaller). So I'm positive I have it right now.

I have a spare C4 that I took apart and...

Is it possible to mix up the piston seals in the 2 drums? I have the forward clutch assembled and have .045 clearance. I started on the high reverse drum and don't feel confident that I used the...
