fluid ?

This should be quick and simple hopefully. I just got a torque converter and am getting ready to put everything together and need to get fluid. I have a b&m torque master 2000 and the info i got with the torque converter says use b&m trick shift fluid or other Ford F type fluid. My question is if i use the trick shift from b&m should i use it in the entire transmission as well and how much fuild should my transmission use in genral. It is a Ford C-4. Its out of a 77 ford mavrick.

Yes...use either one in the entire transmission...pour 1 qt. in the torque converter before you put it on the tranny...then install. Pour 3 qts. in the trans( if the trans is empty) and start the engine and cycle the tranny and then put in park and check fluid with the motor running....continue to add fluid untill full. I do not know what the total fill volume is.

Henry is right.....the fluid whatever you use is the same....The fluid is pumped throughout the trans and converter.....they are not separate as far as the fluid is concerned.
