You will need C 4 style to suit same trans you have.

See OMS reply above.  He's on to it as usual.

I feel the need to defend myself here. Or if the company's on the internet made a error apologize for them.
So...........You tried a fmx on a c-4 transmission bell? Or v/s? 
The internet says c-4 and fmx are a match ( as I copied and pasted in prior message) and I measured my fmx plate and it is exact from the #s they posted for the 2 trannys and there bells.

The plate measurement #s I posted is for fitment to the Bell housing. I also took a picture of a line trace drawing with
measurements. Check EBAY ITEM # 372743637875 it also states this fits both c4 and fmx looks like they sold 18 of them, I would have thought someone would have complained they didnt fit?

Mmm - you've got me now.  Bought a '73 Mach 1 and didn't know what trans was in it but the plate was missing.  Had the same problem with a '66 C 4 so just ordered that same type with a heap of other parts.  Eventually crawled under the car to fit it - nowhere near.  Later got the Marti report which showed the FMX so added that to next parts order.   Perfect - all lined up.  Called a local trans shop in the meantime & he told me FMX was different as I found out. 

Have since sold the C 4 plate so not able to check again.  I will put a tape across the FMX just for interests sake ( and my future info ) and check against the drawing you show.  Maybe what I got was wrong from supplier ? ?

No apologies necessary but this sequence of try, fail, try again, all good, prompted my response.  Good to know these things especially if passing incorrect advice to people.  Apologies from my part if necessary.

I will try to get the vert on the lift today and do some checking. I need to figure out why my speedo cable is about 3" too short, that is housing and all. Maybe when the PO went from FMX to a C-4 the cable needed to change. Another of those AT expert questions to ask. 
Are all the speedo cables the same length for all transmissions? 
Like someone stated in another threat about speedo bounce he uses GPS. That is what I have been doing got a GPS at Goodwill for $18.00 it was a Garmin also.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
