Question about 1966 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

Hi, hope you can help me on this, I got a 1967 mustang, I recently change the fmx tranny for a c4, but I remove the c4 from a mustang II with the small bellhousing (141 tooth), now the problem I have its that the starter hits the oil pan, so I need a smaller starter. I got a mini starter, second hand, from a friend, but It didnt work. So my options are: 1- Get a mini starter that works (If you know anyone, will appreciate the info) 2- Modifying the oil pan 3- Changing the bellhousing, but will have to spend money on torque converter and flywheel. I will surely thank you for the info

What does it mean that my 66 pony has a green dot trany?

the '65/'66 C4, was known as the "Green Dot" C4 & has a different shift pattern to the '67/later C4's.

So your C4 tranny is the green dot which is an UPGRADED option. A better tranny better gears and stronger parts and what not, there was also the white dot tranny that was the cheaper or less performance transmission. As far as i understand the white dot was available for better fuel consumption HAHAHA which no one really cared about in 66 anyways.

In '65/'66 it was something like this:
P - Park
R - Reverse
N - Nuetral
White Dot - Starts in 2nd, automatically shifts to 3rd
Green Dot - Starts in 1st, automatically shifts to 2nd and 3rd

Removing selector from c4 transmission

You have to drop the pan and inside is a bolt and roll pin that hold the selector rod in. You have to remove it and the rod will slide right out so you can replace the seal.

Looking for information on how to remove a c4 automatic transmission from a 1967 ford mustang

It would be easier to pull the engine and trans together. Seriously. Thats a big trans for what space you have. Pullingjust the trans is going to be extremely messy and 90% of handling will be manual labor since the engine will have to be tilted sharply. Then there's the torque converter to deal with. It can be done, but just the separating of the engine and trans will be a job, The firewall clearance should be eyeballed very close because the trans has move back. It will be a job if you've never done one before, Good Luck_Ned_ CCall out if you run into trouble. Use my e-mail I'll be glad to walk you through it. Where are you located?, I'm in CAlif.

Ford AODE-e No drive or reverse 1995

the only way to actually check that torque conv. is to take it out... i have seen a bunch that have stripped out splines inside the converter, or a broken pump shaft... if the fluid is not OVERfull on the dipstick i would say its probably the converter. hope this helps and good luck

Does my Mustang have a low gear?

the C4 automatic transmission is a 3 speed transmission, it shifts by hydraulic pressure controlled by a governor and actuators, I would check your linkage to see that it is hooked up correctly to allow movement through all range selections, disconnect the linkage at the trans and see how many detents you feel while moving the lever back and forth, make sure to chock your vehicle as moving the lever from Park may cause the car to move. Let me know what you find, hope this helps

How to determine correct tranny from vin number?

Hi reedyr,hope this will help you

6F08TXXXXXX 6=model yr F=assembly plant 08= convert body type T= 200cid engine
6 through 11 is a consecutive unit #
not for title or registration

76A F 22 20W 33 2 6
body color trim date dso axle Trans

the 6 in this example is for a dual range automatic (C4) The standard engine and trans for the 66 were the 200cid 3spd. The cruise-o-matic became available with the "K" code and only 5,469 were produced. 289's were letter coded as c, a, or k depending on hp.The 4 spd was an option in 1966 on the 6 cyl and the V-8 retail option price back then for the 6 cyl was$113.45 the V-8 was $184.02 If the 4spd that was in the car was a 66 mustang version it would fit as a well as the old T-10 with the correct lenght of tailshaft, am not certain off hand but I think the over all length is 24" let me know if you need more helpgood luck and ya gotta love a hot rodder
