C4 and AOD Dimensions
---------------------

Overall Length (bellhousing to tailshaft housing end, flat-to-flat):
 AOD - 30 3/4"
 C4 - 30 1/4"

Notes:
 "Engine Swapping Tips and Techniques" lists C4 length as 27 3/4" (C6 length
 28 1/2" or 28 3/4").  I may have measured to the end of the output shaft,
 not to the end of the tailshaft housing.

Distance from Bellhousing to Insulator Mount (flat to mounting hole centerline):
 AOD - 21 3/4"
 C4 - 19 3/4"

Torque Converter Stud Spacing (centerline-to-centerline)
 AOD/C4/164 teeth flexplate - 8 1/4" between closest studs, 11 7/16" between
 farthest studs (stud pattern diameter)
 C4/157 teeth flexplate - 7 3/4" between closest studs, 10 5/8" between
 farthest studs (stud pattern diameter)

Transmission Lengths from "The E4OD", Ford High Performance, April 1995

Trans  Bellhousing    Overall Length
       Face to Trans  From Bellhousing
       Mount Length   To Tailshaft End

C4       20 1/4"         30 1/2"
C6       22 1/2"         33 1/2"
AOD      22 1/4"         30 3/4"
E4OD     29 3/8"         37 1/2"

Torque Converter Snout Diameter (from early SVO catalog)
 289, 302, 351W/C/M, 400, 429/460 - 1.375"
 FE series and early '68 Lincoln 460's - 1.848"

Flexplate Diameters
 164 teeth - 14 3/16" (13" converter)
 157 teeth - 13 1/4" (11" converter)
From http://www.fordsunlimited.com/Tech/c42aod.htm (great article and info)

Great info! Thanks so much. That article was great too! It basically let me know that I need to stick with the C4 trans I already have unless I wanna change the entire center X-member in the frame. Can't do that right now.....LOL!

Caution:  I was recently told that C4's from mid-70's trucks had a shorter tailshaft than those installed in cars.  I checked with the guys at Ford Racing, and they didn't know for sure.  I've got one, but it and me are separated by 240 miles, so measurement will have to wait until I go up north again.

Has anyone else heard about this?

That's new to me. Post pix here. I like to see it.
If my memory serve me correct....Ford only sells 2 output shaft length. one for 4x4 and other for 2 wheel drive.


Back to topic...

Some AOD transmission are 1 inch longer.
You will find them on Lincolns and some full size trucks.

if i remember correctly, they call it a bulldog tailhousing.  it's the one that has a u joint yoke attached to it instead of a slip yoke.  i have one, but not a pic of it.  with this design, the friveshaft has to articulate to accomodate vertical travel in the rear end, instead of the yoke sliding in and out of the trans.
