Started today switching out my C4 for a 4r70w transmission. Been awhile for me on taking on such a project. I forgot what a pain it is to get the Headders off the car. Took me longer to get them off then it did to get the C4 out. Before I could start putting in the 4r70w I had to rotate the Shift arm 180 so I could use my factory shifter. Looked it up on the web it looked easy enough to do. My luck the guy who put the transmission together must have had big arms or a big wrench to put on the Nut that holds the shift arm. Took everything I had to get the nut lose and when it did wrenchs went flying and my hand went into the gear slector gears. A few choice words later the lever was rotated and everything put back together on the pan. Ended there had to go clean out and bandage up a couple fingers. Tomorrow part 2 new day.
1969 Mach 1 Mustang.
3.89 rear gears. Hopefully soon to be driving at a much lower rpm.
