Hi,

The Grumman TC-4B was a project for navigation trainer
aircraft with radar installation in a lengthened nose and
was given the initial designation T-41A (later went to
Cessna),does anyone know more Info or Grumman design
number for it ?.

Wasn't it built? Or was it different from the one with the A-6 nose & radar?

The US Navy ordered 10 aircraft with serials 151892/151901 initially designated as T 41A but redesignated as TC 4B. Procurement was, however, cancelled.

Here's a picture from Interavia 7/1967, described as a standard
Gulfstream I, just modified to take the complete radar nose and
associated equipment of the A-6A . And, it had been flight tested ..

Thank you my dear Jemiba,

And I am confuse that the Grumman designation for the TC-4C
was G-426,and I know that aircraft was designed and built during
1960s,and I ask if Grumman could reatch this number during that
period ?!.

The TC-4C flew in June 1967, and since the TC-4C was designated G-426 by Grumman, and the G-303 designation was allocated to the future F-14 Tomcat, the TC-4B must have surely retained the G-159 umbrella designation for all Gulfstream I aircraft.

These aircraft were built and were assiigned medium attack wings (A-6 units) in the 1980s where they were used for B/N (the NFO's Bombadier/Navigator role in the A-6) qualification. I assume that they were retired with the A-6 in the 1990s.
