John, besides 1968/89's, the C6 was offered on 1990/96 Econolines, F150/350's & F Super Duty's.
Bill I didn't check anything, just didn't recall hearing about a C6 in the 90s most of the trannys used in my area were ODs by then, and electrically/computer controlled.

I hope the piece that the OP ordered works for him. I'm still not sure how it's going to work out in my mind.

BigBlue 94 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I realize the date of this thread, but I wanted to comment that I own a 96 f350 4x4 with 5.8l and factory c6. There is no OD button or circle D on the shift selector. 17 pan bolts and L shaped pan. Oddly the door jamb sticker codes it as a C4 (in an f350 4x4? Lol)

The truck in question was a fleet order by Kansas City, MO. It's an XL RCLB with bw4407 transfer case. Manual everything, vinyl bench, vinyl floor.

Just because it has an F2 stamp doesn't mean it was made then. That's just the last revision to that part.

The transfer case shifter has an F6 revision number stamped on it, but also has 4 transmissions stamped on it: T18, AOD, C6, and ZF HD. Two of which were no longer available.

I have a c6 out of a 73 Lincoln and I am not using the passing gear. It is not hooked up. I recently had all the seals replaced in my tranny and the guy told me there is a kit that would allow me to hook it back up. I have not looked into it though. Sorry this is not on topic.

Yes, at least Lokar makes a kickdown for the C6. Could possibly use parts from a "385" and C6 equipped truck combo from a later year to make the connection, too. Sometimes the linkage/brackets on the side of the carburetor are a bit special for the automatics so that there is a place to connect the kickdown mechanism (rod or cable or what-have-you).

It sounds like the Lokar kit does not come with the carburetor brackets, but they can be ordered separately if needed.

Yeah now that you mention it that is what the guy was telling me. I don't feel the truck needs it but I would love to have it hooked up anyway. I mean when I get on the gas at cruising speeds the truck has no problem passing at all. But knowing it is not hooked up still bothers me. Thanks for the detailed info!!

Lower left drawing shows what the rod looked like and how it connected on the old MX COM and the 352 combo.


They are a rather interesting part. Easily bent since it is hollow tubing.

I read your other posts here and am assuming your definition of passing gear is the automatic kick down to 2nd gear. I have never heard the term passing gear.

I'm betting the 460 has a 4 bbl carb so when you get on it and open the secondaries I'm sure it does scoot regardless.

I had a 1969 GTO 400 with 4 bbl and TH400 automatic. The combination of the secondaries opening at about the same instant as the transmission kicking down would set you back in the seat and often break the tires loose. Fun car.

You are correct. I grew up hearing lots of older guys call it the passing gear.
