This transfer case has a 2. With an overdrive ratio of 0. Rather than the intake manifold vacuum affecting line pressure, the throttle valve does it instead. This Final Drive number is also your torque multiplier when in that gear. Again, depending on the application, three different length tailshaft housings are available; 7 inches for trucks, 14 inches for passenger cars, and 17. The adapter housings we manufacture normally utilize the stock Bronco crossmember with the stock rubber supports.
The first versions of the transmission had a satisfactory yet improvable oiling system. If you have vibration with a new drive-shaft, rotating the shaft 180 degrees may eliminate it. Do you need an overdrive? There are plenty of swaps performed in other Ford vehicles such as the Maverick, Comet, Fairlane, Torino, F-Series trucks, Bronco, and a host of other vintage Fords. Set the adjustment, remove the gauge, and you should have 5 psi. These transmissions have a low first gear which is good for initial take off but this makes the transmission have very wide ratio changes. Note the type of engine you have also determines the flexplate type.
With the engine at idle, the parking brake set, the toggle adjuster unlocked, the transmission selector in neutral, and the T86L-70332-A gauge tool between the crimped slug on the cable end and the plastic fitting, push the cable slider forward slowly until pressure hits 33 psi. Although the two systems are different in function, they do essentially the same thing. Back the throttle valve rod adjustment at the carburetor or throttle body all the way out. Advance Adapters supplies a new output shaft for a majority of our conversion kits. It clears virtually everything including aftermarket headers.
A huge percentage of this capacity is the torque converter once the engine fires and the converter fills. Of course you may want to switch to a shorter gear numerically higher number to take advantage of the Overdrive and quicker acceleration in the other gears, but now your bill is mounting up! For column-shift applications, you will also need a 1967-up shifter, which can become complicated, depending upon model year and application. This Tech Tip is From the Full Book,. With low line pressure, there is no cable tension throttle closed and virtually no shift felt slippage. Small block V8 engines 4.
Mustangs Plus, for example, carries a complete line of ready-to-install Inland Empire Driveline driveshafts for these seemingly complicated swaps, which makes them uncomplicated. If you desire an even firmer shift, adjust the cable tighter in one-notch increments. Soft shifts are a strong indication of slippage, which means you are burning clutches and bands. Add fluid in small amounts and allow the transmission to reach operating temperature. Any auxiliary that requires you to lift off the accelerator or is not intended to shift frequently is not going to give you this performance. An experienced transmission shop should be able to explain these options. The adapter material is 356 T-6 heat treated aluminum alloy, and the adapter has a provision to retain the original early Bronco mount.
Some are in need of many transmission parts in order to keep working well, while others desperately need completely replaced. On this transmission, Ford used two different lengths of adapter housings when coupling this 3 speed to the stock transfer case. It is a notched plastic unit requiring finite tuning one notch at a time that adjusts cable tension. The only difference between the two cable systems is how they adjust and lock down. Next, move the throttle valve lever at the transmission against the internal stop inside the transmission not against the throttle valve and tighten the trunnion bolt.
However, in stock form, one of the most common problems is that the overdrive band has a tendency to burn up, and the lockup input shaft is notoriously weak. If you have a factory fuel-injected application, install the cable block at the closed throttle and lock the block with everything touching yet without cable tension. A special tailhousing and output shaft was manufactured to couple this transmission to the stock transfer case. When this throttle rod is properly adjusted, all you have to do is make minor adjustments at the throttle body or carburetor. Call or e-mail the factory to find out all the options available in your performance application, 1-800-999-9555.
When you have more cable tension, you get higher line pressure and a delayed upshift. If you have a choice, this is the best setup to use because Ford has done all of the engineering work for you. The one-piece casing with its integral bellhousing means each C6 is limited to the series of engines its bolt pattern will accept, and its sheer physical size and length means it is awkward to fit it in many cars. Double overdrive for when running empty with your truck no towed load , factory overdrive for in-town 60mph runs, and a. Available in one of three bellhousing bolt patterns, depending on which series engine it was coupled to, the C6 was the transmission of choice for Ford drag racers for a long time, until strong race-prepared C4s became available. It is easy for the converter to slip off input shafts and pump drives and wind up with a faulty installation and pump failure.
The input gear of this transfer case is 6 spline. If start-up is uneventful you are good to continue. Engines from 1982-up are 50-ounce offset balanced with a larger weight welded to the flexplate. If you already have engine modifications chips, exhaust, fuel increases, etc. Our award-winning history of innovation and expertise ensures we provide quality craftsmanship as we serve our customers with knowledge and integrity.
