      Just to keep this thread alive, I'll post a couple pics of my crossmember. I didn the same pan fill C4/Dana20 swap in my junk. I used a B&M Mega shifter for the Trans, and a Wildhorses twin stick setup for the T-Case. Here's a few pics of the X-member, and one of my rig, and My son.

      Whats 4x4's had c4's? I think 302 stangs had them too, what is needed to convert the tailshaft?

      Along with the c4, 2.8/2.9 V^ flexplate and spacer, bellhousing and TC are needed? And a 2.8/9 starter must be used?

      How about comuter issues, there would be a permanent CEL with this correct?

      You can use the stock column shifter with some small mods to the shift detent plate and for bling factor to the indicator plastic

      hi there, i been searching for info about a c5 c4 trannys, too much info but really don't know how accurate they are, so, i been doing my own research, i have a c5 that is on the proccess to be install on my 92 ford explorer, 4.o ohv BW 1354, i already ask to some pros and they said that c4 c5 are the same, physically the c5 it's a late version of the c4, has some upgrades to the c4, the inner parts, like clutchs, bands, they use the same,, input and output shaft are the same but the c5 has some bigger holes to lub, valve bodys are different but u can place a c4 valve body on a c5 , pan fill or case fill that varies depending from where did you get your c4, van auto or truck, ok, well, if you know any other difference, please, let us know,


      .to install that c5 behind the 4.0 ohv, u need the bellhousing out of a 85 b2 2.8, the flywheel out of the 4.0 auto, also the 4.0 manual starter wont work, need to be replace for a long one, from the auto tranny,

      you resurrected a 3 year old thread for an unrelated topic to ask this question? you should just start a new thread

      also, check to make sure it's full of fluid, and if the check engine light is on (i'm guessing it is) check the codes and see what you get (autozone will rent you a tool to check if you dont have one.. or buy one for like 25 bux)

      im doing a 5.0 ho c5 swap in my explorer. i took the transmision to a pro to get it measured for a torque converter, after ordering a custom c4/c5 torque converter we found out my transmision had allready been set up with c4 parts, now i havce a 400$custom torque converter that does no good. If any body has a c5 bellhousing (The deeper one) and would like to trade or sell it for a good c4 bellhousing that would be most helpfull, i dont want to eat the cost of the custom converter and it should work if i can locate the correct c5 bell. any info or thoughts would be great, email me at White4_6@live.com
