Review:

a George Reid book from 2012, which covers two of the most popular three-speed automatic transmissions made by Ford. Reid starts with a quick history lesson, taking us through the evolution of the earlier Ford-O-Matic two-speed gearboxes into the Cruise-O-Matic C4s which were fitted to many Mustangs and other Fords in the early 60s, rapidly followed by the heavier-duty C6s. Then we re into the main part of the book, with chapters handling disassembly and rebuilding, which can apparently be done in your own garage at home. We are taken though how to identify which type of gearbox you have (as the design was changed through the years) and given lots of technical specifications and tips to help you go about the job. There are also chapters on fitting shift kits made by companies such as B&M, and a whole chapter devoted to torque converters. In summary, it s just the kind of book we ve come to expect from Mr Reid ... informative, practical, and easy to read. --Round-Up, January, 2014

Book Description Cartech Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Ford C4 and C6 automatic transmissions have been equipped in millions of production rear-wheel drive cars and trucks since they were introduced in the 1960s (C4 in 1964, C6 in 1966). They remained in production deep into the 1980s, when overdrive-equipped transmissions finally eclipsed them. However, the C4 and C6 remain incredibly popular with enthusiasts, racers, and restorers alike due to their simplicity, strength, and low cost. Rebuilding either of these transmissions isn't overly difficult, but does require care, some specialized tools, and proper procedure to be followed closely. In How to Rebuild and Modify Ford C4 and C6 Automatic Transmissions, author George Reid walks readers through the process step-by-step, from removing the transmission from the vehicle, to complete disassembly and cleaning, to careful reassembly, to proper re-installation, and road testing. In addition, if the transmission will be used in a high-performance or competition situation, the author includes the various steps required to bolster the unit's strength, using commonly available aftermarket components. Each chapter contains special notes, sidebars, and technical tips to assist the reader at every step in the process. Some refer to safety, others to time-saving advice, and others to small modifications that may aid long-term durability or help the builder tailor the shift firmness. The author's extensive research and experience with these popular transmissions has resulted in a well-rounded full-color technical guide to their revitalization. Seller Inventory # AAS9781934709825
