Im sure this is easy

hey guys,
i need help finding out what year my transmission is. i know its a c6 but i cant figure out what year it is. the thing is that i got a 88 302 that im boring out and basically remanufacturing but i know that if its an older transmission the balance will be off and then everything's going to be super shaky, so can anyone help me figure this out. before having to take it to a transmission guy

First, if it is an 88 model it is a 5.0 not a 302. Most everything is different except the rods and all the bearings. You need to figure out what you are trying to accomplish before you start amassing parts. (For all you experts out there ready to jump me.... try putting 302 rings on a 5.0 piston, etc)

If you have a small block C-6 then it must be from a truck of the early 70s probably a W as few 302s had them.

Ford transmissions have nothing to do with engine balance.
