The pan from a typical FM/2. This one is a '63.
The filter is not a normally-replaced item; clean it thoroughly
in solvent to remove any accumulations.

If your car has a C4 then there will be 11 bolts holding the transmission pan on. If it has the Cruise-O-Matic, 14 bolts. On the driver door ID tag there is in the upper right a signifier for "trans;" if the numeral below it is 4, and you have the original transmission in the car, it is a Cruise-O-Matic.

On my '60 sedan, with an early Fordomatic (air cooled only--but I doubt
it makes any difference) the dipstick measures 15-1/2 inches from the tube
stop to the tip. The low mark is a 1/2" from the bottom, and the
full mark 1-1/2" from the bottom, so the full mark is 14" deep into the
fill tube. My Fordomatic is a bullet-proof transmission -- I
never need to get out of 2nd gear, even on the freeway! Abby (and
