I guess my first question would be - what are your plans for the car ?
Totally stock, modified, or race ?
Totally stock would be the most valuable in terms of resale. Modified or race would limit the number and type of possible buyers.
It had a straight 6 cyl 250 - a 350 V8 - or 400 V8 when new. The VIN would tell you want the original engine was. And this was before GM swapped engines between brands. So the V8 engines were Pontiac built. The Pontiac 6 cyl was overhead cam.

Hello, I have a 1970 Ford XL 429 Fastback auto..will it take a lot to change it to 4 speed and can i still get parts for the change... Thanks

It actually is not overly hard to do but you will need to locate the necessary parts :flywheel (429) for the flexplate, the clutch petal and linkage/zbar, a trans/trans mount and clutch/bellhousing, shifter and console, cut a hole in the tunnel-most parts can be found on either ebay or get a hemmings, and use the web to find others who will give you information on what specific things to look for ( and look out for)-it'd be a fun project in a great car, and is not complicated like a modern car since there is no engine/body computer and harnesses to worry about.

Transmission 95 windstar

If it was a bad pump seal your driveway and road would be covered, if you overfilled your transmission you will know within 300 miles as your internal clutch disks will start burning up and you will have metal shavings and a burnt smell to your transmission fluid. An old shop trick for a little extra life is to add about 1 ounce of brake fluid to your transmission fluid for 1 this will help your seals/gasket to swell slightly potentially stopping minor leaks and another it changes the fluid density/viscosity sometimes allowing your slipping clutch disks to catch where they otherwise wouldn't. Short and not so sweet take your car at your earliest convenience to a reputable transmission shop for diagnosis and repair or you may be stranded sooner than you think. Also you said it feels like the gas and brake are on that could be a transmission vacuum/pressure modulation issue which would effect the transmission shifting at the appropriate speeds. Please get your vehicle checked soon...I will give you any other further advise that I can but this cannot be properly diagnosed without actual inspection. Let me know how this works out for you

I have very little resistance on my clutch, I added fluid to the reservoir and it didn't seem to help. Is the clutch shot?

I do not know the exact parameters of which you mean little to no resistance, but if your reference is of the clutch-pedal feel, then your pressure "diaphram" is weak, which will also be a sure tell sign of clutch grip plate slipping and a very foul smell. solution? take to dealer and replace with OEM (original equipment manufacturer) or replace with an ACT (Advanced Clutch Techology), Clutchmasters, or any number of manufacturers that create eclipse clutches. If it is an automatic, then you are looking at a shot torque converter.
Hope this helps.
Had similar issue, self solved, replaced withs Clutchmaster's Stage 3 Pressure plate, Grip Plate and Flywheel.
But I race....
but make sure you find street level, Im pretty sure you dont race

Civic SI 5-speed transmission/clutch

it depends on how high your reving the engine. if your at the stock a3 rev limit (6900-7000 rpms), between 400 and 450whp. the shaft the gears are on starts to flex and gears separate, causing minimal engagement, which rounds off the edges of the gears.
with a almost stock a3 tranny (stock + quaife LSD), 415whp and 9000rpm rev-limit, it took 1 good race at the drags to damage the 1st and 2nd gear syncros. after a few more races the gears were moderately damaged too.

as far as a good clutch, if you can afford it, i would recommend the FX600 from ClutchMasters.
