a friend o mine is offering me a c-6 trans.... pulled it from a 79 f250 witha 429.... he tells me it has 7 instead of 5 clutch disc/steels.... something bout a lincoln tranny.. yada yada ..

my question is ... i have heard the rumor of a 7 disc pack but how is this acheived.. and what will this do for my preformance...

being that i cant tear the tranny apart to verify this i will be takeing his word for it but if i do this im hopeing to educate myself on this upgrade or be a more certain of my statements to him in the future reguarding this deal...

many thanks

My guess is he is counting clutches and steels ---4 clutches and 3 steels.

Most C6s have 3 clutches in high gear, some, but very few have 4 clutches from the factory.

The forward drum usually has 5 clutches.

my tranny guy uses 5 clutches in my trannny. for the amount of racing we do i do have the tranny freshened up every year.
