Does anyone know where to find the specs online to overhaul a C4, or do most of you own C4 manuals... Can you recomend a good Shop Manual for overhauling a C4?

I'm a Ford tech, but our old shop manuals are lost, torn, and overall junk. I am a trans. tech, but I still have some C4 questions...

We're building it for a daily driver/Part time offroad Bronco 351. based off what i've read here, i'm going with Bulkparts overhaul kit with red eagle frictions, a kevlar band, leaving the rigid band, PA H-Servo, PA pan (are these deeper?), PA dipstick and tube, and stock valve body.(the shift kit it had tore up u-joints) I'm also going to drill the rear oil passage for the rear bushing.

it's a early pan fill style, based on the year bulkparts says it takes a screw in vacuum modulator, non-adjustable, is this correct?

Any help you can provide would be great!! My buddy has built one and gave me some tips, but i have these few questions still to be answered. THANK YOU!!

Well, the last time his u-joints went out, he needed the truck, so he drove it in 4 wheel drive, just front axle, and under medium accelaeration it was barking 35" Mud terains in 1-2 and 2-3 shifts. so when it's trying to shift firmly with those big BFG mud terains, I think it's just too much. also it would be just for daily driving as when you get it off road it will probably be in manual 1st. so i know shift kits are easier on the clutches, but i think factory performace here will be better. unless anyone has found that factory shifting extremly wear the clutches faster than having the mildest shift kit.

opinions?

it has a screw in modulator i forgot to note that.

And I will make sure I get a deep sump filter, thank you.

I'm going to read that thread and see what i can find. clearances in the clutch packs is really what i was looking for, and how to adjust the band nuts.

Clutch clearances are around .005" per plate . I go around .025-.030 for each clutchpack. Bands are snug/firm ,front back out 1-1.5 turns, rear 2.5 turns out..

Fair enough on the shift kit but really depends on what kit he had before,not all of the kits slam the gears that hard. Something like an
SK-5 (i think that is the part #) transgo shift improver would work good.
