How to identify different versions of the Ford C4/C5 Trans.
This clip is taken from the beginning of my How To Rebuild the Ford C4 video series. I get many questions from customers and people on Ford forums asking about how to tell the difference in C4 year model, case and pan fill, styles of bellhousings etc. This video should answer most of these questions. If you want purchase info on the complete C4 as well as other videos, just go to my web site; www.badshoeproductions.com
Rewiring a Ford EEC IV "speed density" harness to a "mass air" harness
Hi, Ken Collins here, I've added a companion video to my 5.0L engine swap two volume series on wiring a "speed density" EEC harness over to a "mass air" harness. Hopefully this video will clear up some misinformation on the subject. Although I've been driving and drag racing this project car for a few years, I decided to change to mass air to help correct some stalling and poor idle. The changeover made a big difference in idle quality without hurting racing performance. If you have or planning changes to your 5.0L engine especially if you've installed a performance camshaft, I urge you to consider a mass air upgrade. If you like this video and would like to know more about the 5.0L engine, EEC IV electronics as well as troubleshooting, the complete 5.0L engine swap video series might be helpful.

How to replace a Ford rear end pinion seal
This clip was taken from BadShoe Productions How To Repair the Ford 8.8" repair video about replacing the pinion seal, but it would apply to most other Ford rear ends. Sometimes, pinion seals may leak because the companion flange has up and down play (or the nut is loose). If you find this, it might indicate damaged pinion bearings which means more than a seal leak concern. Understand that checking pinion preload with a torque wrench in this instance will not be valid because of friction from the carrier/ring gear and brake assembly.
