This PML heavy dutyt transmission pan fits the Ford C5 SelectShift cruise-o-matic transmission.
PML makes a case fill model (part number 10453–1) and a pan fill model (part number 10453–2) for the Ford C4 transmission. The PML C4 transmission pans are the same except that the pan fill model includes a brass fitting to allow filling directly into the side of the pan.
- Fitting for dipstick tube for pan fill transmissions

- Thick gasket flange, machined flat, for a leak-free seal
- Baffled on the inside
The 3 speed SelectShift C4 transmission was used in many Ford vehicles between 1964 and 1986. The C4 pan fill transmission is found most often on Ford trucks and larger cars.
The case fill model of the C4 is found most often on cars such as Maverick, Mustang and Pinto, and Bronco SUV. Some Lincoln and Mercury vehicles may also have the pan fill C4 transmission.
For a case fill C4 transmission pan, see PML part number 10453-1.
The C4 is a popular performance transmission for racing.
The Ford C5 transmission may also be able to use this pan. We have heard from customers that the flange shape and number of bolts is the same but we have not had anyone install this pan on a C5 transmission.
A filter extension is not needed since the level of the fluid is in the same location as with the stock pan. The Filter bolts on to the valve body so no filter supports are needed.
Inside of Pan
This transmission pan features heat sink baffles on the inside of the pan.
Picture shows the PML pan before fill hole or temperature sensor hole have been machined.
Optional Temperature Sending Unit Machining
Optionally, a temperature sensor hole can be machined below the fill hole on the boss on the inside of the pan.
If you would like PML to drill and tap hole, the machining charge is per hole. A plug for the hole is included.
The standard size is 1/8 NPT. Call or email if you need a different size.
