what are the differences in the C4's with the vent in the case and in the tail housing? These are both pan fill and one has a bolt on yoke.

Case vent is older style and tailhousing vent is newer, I think the newer one is like 70 and up or so, not sure though. I would say if they are both pan fill they are both good units to use. Hope this helps.

Be careful if you start swapping output shafts.Compare the front ends of the shafts.The early shafts had a recess in the front to allow for a 1/4" longer input shaft.I think dragman64 just did this swap from flange to slip yoke so he may be able to help..

I had a 1970 pan fill from a truck. I put my 1964 tailshaft on it. the outputshaft has the recess for the longer imput shaft. It works fine. The only problem would be if you were using a early imput with a late output. Even then you could make it work with some machineing.

I had no vents, so I put a 90* 1/8npt fitting on the tailshaft with a 3/8 hose going up to my firewall. I have a little plastic breather thingy, that you see on rearend vents, on the end of the hose.

Greg, do you still have those pictures of the output shafts?
