I don't think you can put too much HP through them, i had a few years ago, if you leave em sitting too long all the seals and bands dry out on you. Maybe someone knows if there is a converstion kit to hook up a C6 to your FE? Is it a 390 or 352? or are we talking 289? If that's the case a C4 might do the trick, I may be way off base here tho. <img src="graemlins/pimp.gif" border="0" alt="[pimp]" />

its a 352 and the tranny seems to do just fine. its the first time ive owned a 2 speed automatic. ive got no desire to drag race or anything if i wanted to do that i probably would of went with something a couple of tons lighter. i intend to baby it, just trying to plan ahead for when it may need to be replaced or think about rebuilding.

Rebuild kits, torque converters, clutches etc. are all still readily available for the Cruise-O at regular prices. Should be no problem keeping it on the road for the forseeable future.

If it is a two-speed FM, you need to upgrade to either an FMX or C6.

FORD used the 2 speed FM in your application for the cost factor.

You're going to need to get on the internet. It's a great place to find info for your projects. The following took all of thirty seconds on "Google". Just typed in fordomatic. Take a look;

<a href="http://www.autotran.us/fmkits1.html" target="_blank">http://www.autotran.us/fmkits1.html</a>

<a href="http://webpages.charter.net/1bad6t/c3.html" target="_blank">http://webpages.charter.net/1bad6t/c3.html</a>

<a href="http://www.dearbornclassics.com/galaxie.html" target="_blank">http://www.dearbornclassics.com/galaxie.html</a>

<a href="http://www.fordv8.hpg.ig.com.br/modelo.htm" target="_blank">http://www.fordv8.hpg.ig.com.br/modelo.htm</a>

<a href="http://www.fordclassics.com/carclubs.html" target="_blank">http://www.fordclassics.com/carclubs.html</a>

Those were just a byte or so of 620 sites located. A C-4 or C-6 will fall fight in if it is an FE. C-4 for a small block.
