    Not a Torqueflite (C-6) but funny! I rebuilt many of these over the years but, none made me laugh like this!

        A hard life? I'll say. That is some serious transmission trouble!

        Looks like it may have gotten some water in the trans.... If it were just heavy load & hard work the clutch should look burnt... It looks like the fiber de-lamintated.. The glue that attaches automatic transmission clutch material to the core is water soluble & so if they get wet with water they come apart...
