This may sound stupid,.....but

does anyone know what all the 1/2 in steel lines coming out of my tranny, and tranny pan are? This is my 1967 F100. I need to figure out what their purposes are, I'm installing headers, and these tubes are kinda in the way. And i don't want to do anything to them without knowing for sure what they are.

They are coming out above the pan and are the trans cooling lines. They go up to the front to the rad. You can move them, but don't remove them..........or break them.

that is what i thought, but I swear , one actually comes out of the pan itself on the driverside, and it appears to go into the engine block. I will study their routing a little better when i get home from work tonight. The other thing is the size of these lines, they are HUGE, like over a 1/2 in in diameter, and no i'm not looking at the ends, this is actually the tube daimeter itself.. No where near the miniscule size of tranny cooler lines. And they don't goto the radiator.

If they are cooler lines one should come out of the transmission body, the other may go into the pan. Are you sure that you are not looking at the distick/filler tube?

gotta be cooler lines and the pan fill tube.

I'd leave them alone.

But he states this.


" one actually comes out of the pan itself on the driverside "

Filler tubes are on the passenger side.

There's any outside chance he is looking at the downshift rod - which looks like a tube and attaches on the driver side near the pan and then extends upward so it might appear, looking from below, that it attaches to the block. It's the only thing I can think of that would be in that position on a stock Ford auto tranny.

Ok, I did NOT get a chance tyo go get pics of it last night, had to go get a load of firewood instead. I will get and post pictures tonight.
BTW I decoded my data plate, and the transmission code is a G, which translates to "automatic"

Well, the guys over at Fordification figured it out, my truck came factory with a heat exchanger, and they may have the instructions on how to reroute those tubes. I am still gonna post pics so that people can get a better visual as to what I was talking about.

Ok, i finally have a definite answer. I have a water cooled transmission! the guys over at fordification figured it out at about the same time as an old timer at the local ford dealer. I'm still not too sure as to which trans I have, but at least I now know what those lines are for. I will still post pics to show everyone as soon as I have a chance to take them. Hopefully tonight.
