O/T kinda diff. between car and truck 2wd c4\'s?

I am in need of a c4 for my 1978 f100. i have a line on one with a fresh rebuild. this tranny is case fill(dipstick goes in case), my tranny is pan fill(dipstick goes in pan). is that hard to switch over? are there any other major differences in the c4's in truck and the one's that were put in cars? any websites I can go to to find out? I have searched the web without much luck yet. i have not been able to look at this tranny yet, the guy selling it lives about an hour and a half away. I just want to make sure it is worth the drive to look at it if it is going to be to hard to make it work in my truck. thanks, Ben

The early car C4s had a smaller input shaft. The later models had a larger one. Some have the same spline count both input and output. The gear selector while interchangable is different between a column shift and a floor shift. As to car or truck differences I don't think you will have a problem there. You can get one from a V8 Maverick or such, but don't get a I6 model. They have the smaller input shafts.

Ask him to cout the splines for you and see. Also ask him what it came from engine wise and if he has the T/C for it. They are cheap and easy to rebuild if that is what you need. I am getting one done with a new T/C for $200.
