Transmission Swap

I have a 1972 Gran Torino with a 351 Cleveland, C-4 transmission that's making weird grinding noises. I also have a 1975 E-150 with a 300L and C-6 transmission that works just fine. Is it going to be a simple in-n-out? Which torque converter do I use? Any little tricks anyody can help me cheat with?

In case I was unclear, I'm keeping the Cleveland in the Torino. I only want to swap trannies.

Call up a junkyard that uses the Hollander interchange system and ask that very question, since you know both applications.

My car? I'd have the stock unit rebuilt. Probably better off anyhow.

Don't think they will bolt up, the bellhousing patterns are not the same. The C-6 case and bellhousing are one piece. The C-4 bellhousing is seperate.
