For that I would get a C-6, geartrain in a C-4 is small for that kind of sustained load.On 2005-04-25 13:23, 75XR7 wrote:
I have a 1975 Cougar XR7 with a 351M and a C4 (it has the big bellhousing).
I am almost done rebuilding a 460 for this car. I was going to go with a C6, but after reading the excellent C4 monster thread, I am considering rebuilding a C4.
I read that the C4 can handle lots of horsepower, but my car is being built for towing. The 460 will put out 500+ ft-lbs at low revs pulling a total of 7000+ lbs, which is not quite the same as 500 hp at 5000 rpm in a 3500# car.
I have located a E2T code C5 that I can pick up for $200 Cdn.
Would it live?
A question for any Aussies on here;On 2003-01-06 16:12, R Code wrote:
This basic HD C4 was again redesigned in 1982 with a convertor clutch (that locks up), a deeper bell housing, a unique valve body, a number of other different internals and named the C5. The C5’s superior oiling circuit includes a number of small differences from the C4 making it the preferred setup of the three as you can replace the C5 convertor, bell and valve body with standard C4 units and have a super duty C4.
