73 Mach I Long Term Project
#1
In my intro message I mentioned I have had this project for 20+ years. I don't have any good pictures of the car right now but I have started my latest project of rebuilding the C4.

Following are pictures of the start of the teardown:

Hoping to continue the tear down in the next couple of days.

Good Luck with the rebuild, I just finished rebuilding my C4 also, they are a great transmission to learn on. If you run into any questions there is a great YouTube video with 3 parts that really helped me out if you search rebuilding C4 transmission. The guy goes through everything step by step and if you have a manual it is extra reassurance.
