Hey friends I have a question regarding the shift pattern on the C4 Transmission in my 68 cougar.
My current trans was given to me free by a friend who bought it new from I believe TCI and barely used it before converting his car to a 5spd manual. I had it installed right away and it works great though the shift pattern was different than what I was used to. I wasn’t a huge fan, but it was a free transmission with a peppy shift kit so I sucked it up. Plus my old one was non-original, leaked, and was shifting sloppy.
I’m embarrassed to say this swap was about 7 or 8 years ago and I’ve only just now learned by googling the right terms that the 65 Mustang he purchased it for employed a different shift position designations than later used in 68. I’d like to change this transmission to perform how a typical 68 would in each of the 1-2-D positions.
My question is: How difficult is it to convert a C4 to behave like a 68? I’m curious to know how involved this would be. Depending on what it takes I may tackle it myself, or enlist a couple mechanic-friends, or suck it up and deal until this transmission fails someday.
Please let me know if more details are needed, and thanks!
