Ok so I bought a used broader c4 I rode in the car it was in before I bought it and all was good but now I installed it and I'm having problems first off its in a 89 5.0
The trans has a reverse manual vb and my problem is I shift from 1st to second fine but when I go for 3rd it goes right into 1st for some reason my my shifter selector shoes 3rd though my cable adjustment is good and so is my trans fluid level I'm runnin redline trans fluid in it any one got any ideas also I'm runnin a Ptc converter

Is reverse good and strong?


Not just works but really works.


Reverse and 3rd use the same clutch pack.

In 1 first gear what happens when you back off the gas?
Does it freewheel or hold back?

Now I go back out there just to confirm that my reverse was good,and it doesn't work for **** I'm assuming a rebuild is in order this sucks though cuz when we pulled this tranny it felt great
