My C4 Rebuild

In the process of rebuilding my C4 and thought I would share my progress. Feel free to give advice if you have any on this subject. I would welcome any help. Right now im waiting on more parts from TCI and Napa before I can put it back together. Can't wait till summer so I can try this out.
Snow + Old mustang = bad combo. ha

Have you heard of the BadShoe Productions DVD on the C4 rebuild? Ken has put together a great DVD that helps you understand what the common failures are that require attention, how to measure your endplay and other clearances, etc. Also check out the Ford Automatic Transmission Forum: Ford Transmission Forum. Further, check out AOLShove on this forum and his website where he rebuilt his transmission and documented his work.

Always good to have resources, good luck with it, you should do just fine.

Ill save this thread and if I get to a point where im really stuck I will take you up on that offer. Right now I have three different shop manuals so I feel pretty confident at the moment but thank you for the offer and I will keep it in mind.
