C6 overhaul, tips tools..

So I'm getting ready to re-build my C6 in my 4x4 1979 F250. I'm not looking forward to it and it's my only option (over a grand to have rebuilt).

My tool list:
Lots of basic hand tools
Hand drill and drill bits
dial indicator
dail caliper
2 c-clamps (for foward-reverse gear) Thinkin about proper compressor instead
Slide hammer (tor remove bushings)
In lbs torque wrench
ft lbs torque wrench
good shop manual
c6 rebuild DVD

So am I missing anything? What about aligning/installing the front pump? I see there's tools for some for other trannys but haven't found one just for the C6.. I can pull the bushings out with a slide hammer just like the TH350 right? Can I re-install with like a socket or a piece of wood made to fit?

pump alignment can be done by using the case with the pump inverted down into the case (before you stack the inside of the trans) so the 2 halves can be centered on each other. just make sure the bolt holes are lined up right when you tighten the pump bolts.
just make sure the outer o'ring is not on the the pump.
the c-6 is quite an easy trans to build, and having an instructional dvd should help greatly for your rebuild.
the one thing that does concern me is your idea of how to remove bushings that need to be changed, as you dont mention anything about what your going to use to install new bushings. harbor freight or northern tool should have a decent enough universal bushing driver kit that wont kill your wallet that would be better than trying to use a slide hammer that could possibly damage aluminum components ( like the pump and case) from scoring.

Thanks,
I'm not sure even how the bushings go in and out. My TH350 handbook suggests using a slide hammer to pull them and a socket to reinstall. I'll look at harbor freight, didn't think of them.

Hopefully the alignment tip you gave will make more sense when I get there

you know what, i was incorrect, the c-6 pump is different, you need the torque converter to center the stator to the pump and gears and that will work for proper alignment.
all you do is leave the converter facing up toward you and drop the pump down in and get it where its all the way down into the splines. line up the bolt holes where the stator bolts up to the back side of the pump. seat them to hold centered and then tighten accordingly. thats the way i do them.i was thinking about a pump with split halves, which the c-6 doesnt have.
