Ford trans question

I have a need for a tranny for a ford 4x4 and have a C-4 C-6 and an AOD..these are from 2wd cars and trucks.

Can the tailshaft be removed and a transfer case bolted up on any of these???..would save me a bunch if I can use what I already have..

Thanks
Sam

I'm thinking probably not. Here is a pictue of a C4 I took out of a 4x4 '74 Bronco. Notice the output shaft is quite a bit shorter than a regular 4x2 trans. You may be able to swap the output shafts, but your pretty much going to have to tear apart both transmission to do it, I believe.

Ford uses a different shaft length for 4x4 applications from a 2wd setup.........

Correct here. If you have a correct (or near correct) donor, you can interswap to make an origional if both are of the same basic design (consider all the running changes to a C4 for example). You would either have to be a very knowledgeable tech with a big tool box or know one you could trust.

Is your origional installation a C4 or C6 and what is the engine type? Transfer case type?

Actually this is for the Ford in a Jeep project..Given the feedback I have located a complete unit..transmission and transfer case from a Ford Bronco..which I will go check out..

Doing the research on a 4x4 engine swap I found that a fellow needs to keep his engine and trans combo from the same donor as it solves a lot of issues..Putting the Ford engine and trans in the Jeep is made doable by the fact the Ford uses what we call a left side transfer case so the driveshaft outputs line up with the Jeep...

Thanks for the input..

Sam
