I need to fit an auto to my boosted 2L pinto. the C3 just won't be even close to strong enough.
I was thinking of a C4, and need to know if I could fit a bellhousing off a C3 to fit the pinto. and if I could use a factory capri C3 gearbox crossmember on the C4 ???
and finally can you get 4 speed C4's and what are they found in??
The short answer is no.
The c3 bellhousing uses 8 bolts and has the pump bolted to it with another 5 bolts.
The c4 uses 7 bolts which also hold the pump.
All c4's are 3 speed. but ford did use a c4 behind the 2 liter 4cylinder in 1972-73, so there must be bellhousings around
Some 70,s American pintos as well as the 4cylinder mustangs had the c4, most had a C3
The 122(4) is engine size and number of cylinders in the attachment.
You might have a problem fitting the c4 in a factory manual car. check this thread .But it might be due to the larger v8 bellhousing and converter as the 4cyl ones are heaps smaller
