I spent 3 weeks doing a C-6 full rebuild.. first time i ever opened one up..
i used the art-carr off-road throttle body.. and a full c-6 rebuild kit.. also
the low gear sets upgrade.
make sure you install ALL gaskets and seals..i "may" have forgot a seal around
the pump...
i don't know yet...
if you have a camera take pics of the assmblys as you remove them
keep ALL parts in order.... have lots of room to work..
use atf not assembly lube to reassemble... (after reassembly on mine it is SO
tight with the assmb. lube i cannot turn it by hand...
get a rubber hammer... use all torque specs... there are 2-3 good books out
there on c-6's...i found two on ebay....
GOOD luck...... phil

I have just rebuilt my c6 out of a 79 ford 4x4. i installed the tci pro super
kit, it seemed to be a very good kit. it included everything i needed. I
completed the tranny rebuild in about 5 hours. thats minus the hot tank time.


good luck!

Who here has tried the grant steering wheels? Do you like them? How was
intallation? I am interested in getting on for the "quick disconnect"
feature to deter thieves.

That reason, and that I thought they look cool.

I just got a Corvette (yeah yeah, who cares if it's a chevy, it's fast as
hell), and it has a grant wheel on it. I was not aware of it having a quick
disconnect, but I really like it, it's a bit smaller then the usual steering
wheel but the circle part is thicker, and it just seems solid. I would have
never wasted the money before, but after using one for awhile, now I would
spring for one if my car did not have one.

I installed one plus their cruise control kit. Couldn't do without that.
I don't know what year your truck is but the standard 14" on my '84
landed right in the line of sight to my gauges. I opted for the 15" and
have been very pleased. BTW...the steering effort goes up a tad the
smaller the wheel.

Adam,

I've used the Grant security on two different cars. My 55 has a wood wheel
with the security kit and I had a 69 SS 396 Camaro that I also used it on.
Works great. Never a problem, easy to take on and off and gives you just a
little more security. We are starting to have some problems with car theft
at the big shows out here and I am starting to show the truck with the wheel
off with the grant cap on.

I'm sure this has been run into the ground, but just wanted to get all your thoughts
on this ... a good friend of mine bought one and has let me borrow it whenever
I need it (now you know why he's a good friend :) ... he thought it was off
so wanted me to check it ... his Jeep pulls a whopping 18.xx 0-60 time, and
it says 60 when his speedo only says 55, despite his stock sized tires and original
status.

I'll be running this on my truck probably this weekend, but here's the stats
I pulled with the car :

0-60 6.65 and when i ran the quarter it was 6.66
qtr. mile 15.2 98.8mph
lateral g's 0.81g peak

I ran it last year a bit with a borrowed one from another friend when it was
stock, don't remember the qtr, but 0-60 was 7.2.

Thoughts ? Comments ? threats (if I don't run the truck to see what it turns)
?

Just my $.02

Ive got a Grant on Tweety, got it because it looked like the previous owner
may have used the steering wheel as a place to tie a tow rope to, It was all
bent up bad. Im goin back to a stock Ford wheel though, the Grant is too
small, it blocks my signal indicators, and to see my speedo from 40-80, I
gotta duck.
