http://www.oldcarmanualproject.com/manuals/trans/Ford%20C4/1971%20Ford%20C4%20Technician%20Reference%20Manual/index1.html Check this one. If you get it apart, see if it has 6 pinion planitaries.

The extra wide bushing is how wide? This one is just a tick under 3/4" and made of brass I think

On the bushing, I would say that is the wide one, but nut 100% positive, but it about the size of a C6 bushing from memory. Are the bolts on the bell housing seperate from the pump? Check your PM box, but it is probably to late.

What I meant was if it had seperate bolts that hold it to the case, or do they go thru the bell housing and pump? I think all of the BBF bell housing's are the large style and have seperate bolts, but I am not sure.

Don't get me to lying. I like type F myself, but guy's seem to run all type's now. I would check around some. How was the seal grove on the torque convertor?

I think okay. I've seen merc III, type F and john deere tractor fluid in my searches. Just hoping guys with big blocks say something as the torque is just a tick more

http://www.429-460.com/t21069-trans-fluid?highlight=fluid                                                                                                                               If you like to spend A lot of money, check this link. Last I heard Frank Merkel still recomended regular ol Type F with the C6's, and he should know. You will probably need to fill that C4 with Super Glue to hold it together behind that BBF. Cool

It will depend on your convertor and trans cooler size, but I would think 10 quarts or less.

I have never used it, but I bet the John Deere and IH fluid is good stuff too.

Now my question is do I beat on it and test it or save it for the track because it's a matter of time before it does it again ?

I would save it for the track, before something else falls off, and it will. Cool
