Ford C6 transmission - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Ford C6 is a heavy-duty automatic transmission built by Ford Motor Company between 1966 and 1996. Compared to its predecessor MX transmission, the C6 offered lower weight, complexity, and parasitic power loss and greater torque capacity for larger engines, without exceeding the packaging dimensions of the MX. These design goals were in line with those of the C4 for smaller engines.

To cut down on weight and cost, the C6 featured a simple, three speed Simpson planetary gearset as well as over 10 lb (4.5 kg) of powdered metal. To aid in shift quality and long time durability, it was the first automatic transmission designed to use the Borg-Warner flexible shift band.

The C6 was used in trucks and cars with larger engines. Five different bell housing varieties exist for use with various Ford engine families:

Right now i am working on the Transmission. I am rebuilding it and putting in a shift kit.

Honda Civic (first generation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Honda began selling the 1169 cc (70 in³) transversely mounted inline four-cylinder Civic for about US$2,200. The Civic was largely developed as an all new platform, and was the result of taking the previous Honda N600 and increasing the length, width, height, and wheelbase. The engine displacement was almost double the previous N600 (599 cc) at 1,170 cc, with two more cylinders added. The car produced roughly 50 hp (37 kW) and included power front disc brakes, vinyl seating, reclining bucket seats, and a woodgrain-accented dashboard which has many similarities to the later Rover SD1. The hatchback version added a fold-down rear seat, an AM radio, and cloth upholstery. The car had front and rear independent suspension. A four-speed manual transmission was standard. Options for the Civic were kept to a minimum, consisting of air conditioning, an automatic transmission called the Hondamatic, radial tires, and a rear wiper for the hatchback. The car could achieve 40 mpg-US (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpg-imp) on the highway, and with a small 86.6-inch (2,200 mm) wheelbase and 139.8-inch (3,550 mm) overall length, the vehicle weighed 1,500 pounds (680 kg).

The four-door sedan version of this bodystyle was not available in the USA and the 5-door hatchback did not appear until 1978, just before the introduction of the second generation. In the USA, the advertising campaign used to introduce the Civic was, "Honda, we make it simple."

The Civic's features allowed it to outperform American competitors such as the Chevrolet Vega and Ford Pinto. When the 1973 oil crisis struck, many Americans turned to economy cars. Reviews of American economy car quality were poor and getting worse due to spiraling costs for manufacturers. Japanese culture had a long-standing tradition of demanding high-quality economy cars, and the growing American desire in the 1970s for well-made cars that had good fuel mileage benefited the standing of the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Datsun B210 in the lucrative U.S. market.

I also have a 1978 Civic and plan on working on that when my Bronco is done.

Ford Bronco - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Ford Bronco is a sport utility vehicle that was produced from 1966 to 1996, with five distinct generations. Broncos can be divided into two categories: early Broncos (1966–77) and full-size Broncos (1978–96).

The Bronco was introduced in 1966 as a competitor to the small four-wheel-drive compact SUVs such as the Jeep CJ-5 and International Harvester Scout, and built on its own platform.[1] A major redesign in 1978 moved the Bronco to a larger size, and it was built using a shortened Ford F-Series truck chassis to compete with the similarly adapted Chevrolet K5 Blazer.

The full-size Broncos and the successor Expedition were produced at Ford's Michigan Truck Plant in Wayne, Michigan.
