That will certainly work.
I was just looking for an "R" or "C" servo and couldn't find any new ones...guess it's been a long time since I've tried to find a servo for a C4....Powerglides are so much simpler.

I liked this one because it has seals on the shaft. I really hope this helps or else I might push this thing off a cliff

Just as long as it doesn't snap your neck shifting from 1st to 2nd it should help the flaring.................if you decide to push it off a cliff.......let me know which one so I can be there to catch it...........have a soft spot for 66 through 68 Mustangs.

Haha I hope it doesn't come to that point but I'll let you know if it does. I don't mind a firm shift, it's a hell of a lot better than a flare!

I run the b&m trick shift stuff (type f equivalent) and it does provide firmer shifts. As far as steels I don't know for sure but for the extra $50 it's worth it for the extra insurance

I would add in a trans temp gauge too just to keep an eye on things too

I had to order mine off of summit, the cool thing is that you can mix it with normal type f if you run out. It is a little pricey but definitely worth it

Well ordered some more parts, a 6 clutch drum, overhaul kit and the thrust washers. Decided not to get the fluid sense It's only a 6 and it's about a 4th of the cost. Hopefully this solves it.

Do you have a dial indicator? The endshaft play is pretty critical in the c4

Well I had a little set back apparently my little 6 makes so much power the fly wheel has a crack going around 3/4 it. Should be rebuilding and installing it today. Hope all else goes to plan.

I had a cracked flexplate on a Chevy truck once. You could clearly hear a noise but no one quite knew what it was. Finally, I had the transmission removed, and the crack was revealed

If you can't fix the transmission this time Travis, that's it. You've struck out. You will be banished to using a 3 speed manual transmission in that Mustang for the rest of your life!

As much as I hated to do this I'm caving and having a shop build it and install it. I don't have the time to mess with it and I need to be able to drive my car to and from school.

I don't blame you at all. At least this way if something goes wrong down the road, you have some recourse too.

Yeah it's just this is the first job that's been farmed out. So a little nervous with it ha and it's weird for it not to be in the drive way when I came home

Kind of went AWOL.
You undoubtedly picked the single most difficult rebuilding job on a car, the automatic transmission. I've been working on cars for 54 years and automatic transmissions and rearends are the two things I have mostly farmed out, the rest is a walk in the park...IMHO

Yeah I agree. It was a good learning experience though. It was just deceiving, it was to easy to take apart and put back together just all the small adjustments are the killer. Now the problem is finding a good shop. The one it's at now hasn't called me in 2 days when they need my okay todo any work to it.

Story of my life! I finally found someone I trusted in CO to work on my DD right before I moved overseas. Ask around and go to bbb.org. A negative rep spreads like wildfire, so if you're having trouble finding complaints about a place that's a very good sign.

Yeah it's quite the pain. I've gotten parts from this guy before and he seemed very knowledgeable, and is just isn't good at communicating. Like waits till the end of the day to okay works so he can't start till tomorrow. It's like he knows that I'm kinda stuck there sense the car was towed there so he can keep it on the back burner and get quicker customers through the door.

That's a common thing with shops. The quick fixes turn a bigger profit so they get higher priority...it's kinda just how it seems to work in most of the industry. As long as you trust them to not screw you over, that's a big part of the battle. Hang in there!

Another place I've used to check reviews of shops is Angie's List. Since you need to be a paid subscriber to post a review, it screens out a lot of drive-by crap reviews.

I'll have to look at Angie's list next time. This place seems okay besides the lack of communication. They sound like they know what they are doing just taking their sweet *** time. Was supposed to pick up my car Monday, then Tuesday and then today. I kept calling non stop to see if I could annoy them enough to get my car done and out of there today but didn't work. "Should" be ready tomorrow. We'll see.

On a side note, I'll give some words of wisdom if some one decides to rebuild their transmission after this debacle.

One, get the kit I got plus the thrust washers and you'll have everything you'll need to rebuild the transmission as far as hard parts.

Next is don't re use anything. Including the torque converter AND FLUSH THE COOLER. I didn't do either, because well my tc is brand new and flushing the lines/cooler never crossed my mind.

And after you reinstall everything air check everything and make sure you have enough end play.

And if all is done correctly and still doesn't work,

Not shifting=governor/line pressure

Shifting late=modulator (basically)


After talking to this guy about 100 times about my car I think I have gained the confidence to rebuild one again. They may seem all confusing and scary but if you break it down into all the difference then it's really pretty simple. Well at least the vacuum only trans. Even if you go into the valve body it's still pretty simple. Only thing that is still a little concerning is the bands but I'll talk to the mechanic tomorrow and see how they do it.

Good info, and always good to learn new things. But I'm still convinced automatic transmissions run on voodoo magic and unicorn tears. It'll be good to have you car back!

Well got her back yesterday and man does it feel good to drive it again! Good news was I didn't install anything wrong, just reused the tc and didn't flush the line so all the fluid with the metal and clutch material just went through the tranny again clogging up the governor. Only problem is the shifting timing. I'm only making 15ish vacuum so it wants to shift late. So 1st-2nd shift is around 25-30mph then 2nd-3rd is 40-45mph. Anyway way to supplement the vacuum for the trans? I already have a vacuum canister just don't see how that could work with the modulator
