Good afternoon,
I am wondering what is the correct fluid to use after 1973 C6 rebuild. I believe it originally used Type F, but wonder with the new friction plates if that is still correct.
I asked this question of the kit seller, but did not receive a response.
Not knowing any better, I will put Type F back in.
Please let me know what you know.
Thank you.

Either will work but I prefer type F.

In my feeble mind it seems to work morether gooder.

Thank you for the reply,
I will go with Type F. Hope to remove transmission in next week or two and will update.

That is a good one, that is funny. That is actually how I got that name, from riding motorcycles.

I prefer to stick with type F in C6's . I have used dexron2 + 3 but I find the type F just gives that bit nicer shift IMO.

Thank you for the reply,
I ordered 15 quarts of type F last night. I am wondering if it is common to reuse the one way clutch if it appears to be working? I have not ordered one for the rebuild, I figured I would inspect it.

Please let me know.
Thank you,
Scotoer

Unless it has had the crap beat out of it they are usually pretty good.
It consists of 3 components.

Inner race.
Outerrace (which is part of the rear housing).
Springs and rollers.
Rip it apart and give it an eyeball.

The inner race must be removed before the rear piston can be tackled.

It only goes in one way so no fear of getting it out of whack.

Yes exactly. Check the wafer springs for any cracks , also if the rollers just drop out because the wafers are collapsed .
Usually the rollers and inner race are ok though I did have one inner race recently had a groove worn in it I replaced
