250 c4 on a 200?

Post #1 by ErthwermJym » Sun Aug 21, 2016 8:14 pm

I have a c4 from a maverick that had the 250. The bellhousings are different aren't they? I just bought a 76 maverick and it has to warm up for about 15 minutes before it will really get past a crawl in Drive. It has the 200ci motor. The c4 from the 250 never had this problem and was/is a strong tranny. Will the 250 C4 work on the 200 if I put the 200 C4 bellhousing on the 250 C4? Thank you...I'm still learning.

Swap on the correct bellhousing.
Use the 200 flexplate/reinforcement ring.
Use the 200 torque converter.

You will be good to go.

What CoupeBoy said is correct.

I suggest getting a new/rebuilt 200 torque converter instead of
using the one you have now. If you're having trouble with the 200
C4, it would be cheap insurance to replace it.

Also, make sure you flush out the lines and trans cooler in the radiator.

Throw a quart of Trans-X in it.
