Windsors were the case fill, opposed to the pan fill clevo box. I'm sure they will bolt up, using the correct converotr/flexplate.

Hey pinkbits i run a windsor c4 and i found out the hard way that the bellhousing, box, are different to a clevo c4 and the flexplate and stall convertor must suit the box ie... you have to state wether its to suit a windsor or clevo. They were code named c9 and there box filled, well atleast mine is. hope that helps

Re: c4 windsor/clevo box?

There are two bolt patterns for the bell housing.
5 bolt ...rare
6 bolt ...standard

Two bolt pattens for the torque converter...
10.5 inch
11 inch

I believe C4,s will bolt up behind a cleveland or a wheezer.

The problems begin when you mix and match; bellhousings, convertors, flywheels, sandwich plates and starters.

If the C4 you are getting comes with a matching convertor, bellhousing and sandwich plate it will bolt up behind a Cleveland. If you have a clapper style starter you will need to change it for a bosch item.

If you are just getting the (Windsor, case fill, C9), C4 box and convertor and using your (Cleveland, pan fill, C10), C4 bellhousing and sandwich plate, I think you will have trouble.

Clear as mud?

I hope that helps pinkbits

What workhorse says is perfect.A bosch starter must be used with the smaller flexplate ,a clapper will hit the clevo sump.

Yep,this bit is definitely correct,you will have issues if you try to mix the bits.

Re: c4 windsor/clevo box?

gday fella's,
i run a case fill (windsor) c4 behind a clevo, and all i had to do was get a windsor flexplate, sandwich plate and converter. i find it much better because it moves the starter away from the pipes (whatever size they are). no more melted bosch starters.

cheers, justin.
