Hi Guys,

well I have a question about the shift rod what goes from my 351C to my C6 trans, a couple of years ago I had to change my tranny from an FMX to a C6 and had not the shift rod for the C6, so I installed the FMX one.

Unfortunately I could not exactly adjust the gears with this one.

Is there a difference between those rods or is there any thing I miss or don't know?

Thanks for your answers.

Yes, I had the same problem. I am also not sure that the C6 I got came from a mustang. What I had to do was lengthen the tranny linkage (the part on the transmission) to make it work.

I did the same conversion and the FMX shift rod worked fine with the c6. I did have to modify the kickdown linkage a little though.
