It's not for installing leaf spring bushings but you're so close
to the right answer !!

I'll give you another hint.
After 1948 Ford made a change that made this tool unnecessary.

Nope...This may actually be a little bigger than the pic makes it seem.

bubba1955 Here's an old tool used on Fords.
Can you guess what it's used for?

Agreed. Even just changing 60% is better than nothing. I didn't mean to criticize, just inform.

OldTech The dealer and shops that typically do this work use a pressure feed exchange system. It sucks the old oil out and replaces it with fresh oil. That is the only way you can change all the oil. Remember that the converter doesn't drain so you are leaving 3 to 4 quarts of oil oil in your transmission. The machine has adapters that adapt to the cooler lines. It takes about 30 quarts of oil to completely flush the transmission.
