    So I have a 292 in my 59 F100 with a Ford-o-matic. I dont much like this transmission so I have begun collecting trans parts. I have done my research looking for the proper torque converter but I am still unclear. I talked to the guys at Ford-Y-Block and read elsewhere that the proper torque converter is an 11". I cant find an 11" torque converter for a C-4. I have found plenty of 10.5" or 11.45".
    Has anyone done this conversion that can give me a part number or at the very least verify which one I actually need? I know this is a common conversion so someone has to have the info. I have looked through a good amount of c-4 forums both here and at other ford forums and cant find the answer. i appreciate any info.
    Also if you have any nice to know info regarding this project please pass it along. I think when I do it I will do a build thread and include a complete parts list with suppliers and part numbers to help anyone in the future. Thanks.

    11" torque converters.

    Simple, choose the stall speed you want and go from there. The Flat O kit has everything else you need.

    I picked up an affordable starter, I just went into the local parts store and asked for a starter from a 1970 Ford pickup with a 360 engine.

    The link that Easyissy gave had everything except the torque converter id. It did have an email address way down at the bottom though. I don't know how old that link is but i think I'd send the writer and email asking what torque converter he used in the swap.

    In that article he mentions that the C4 came from a 1970 Mustang. I'd be willing to bet he put another torque converter into the conversion that was specified as being for his 1970 C4.

    Choose a torque converter from the suppliers (11") and specify the year and model of your C4 and you won't have any troubles.
