    1978 Bronco

    Justin installed this PML C6 transmission pan on his 1978 Ford Bronco 400M with C6 transmission and NP205 transfer case. His Bronco had plenty of clearance for the larger PML pan.

    1978 F250

    Ed installed this PML transmission pan on his 1978 F250. The 400cid engine is solid and the C6 is recently rebuilt. He tows a 11,000lb toy hauler. The truck has a Dana 60 front end and he replaced the Dana 60 rear with a Dana 70hd dually axle and converted it to disk brakes. And that's just a few of the upgrades.

    Bolts and magnetic drain plug included with PML Ford C6 deep pan

    Included with PML Transmission Pan

    This image shows the contents of the box for a pan in the as-cast finish as an example. Click on image to view larger.

    PML includes new mounting bolts and a magnetic drain plug with each pan. PML includes new mounting hardware since the stock bolts would not be long enough. The flange of the PML pan is much thicker than the stock pan for a secure seal to the housing.

    Drain and Bosses for Temperature Sending Units

    The drain is located on the driver/left side of the transmission pan. PML includes a magnetic drain plug with each order.

    This pan has two bosses (thick, round areas) that can optionally be machined for a temperature sending unit. If you wish PML to drill and tap for a temperature sending unit, there is a machining charge. Select this option in the shopping cart.

    In 2017, we moved the boss on the passenger side to the inside of the pan. In a few vehicle configurations, the drive shaft runs close to the pan and contacted the boss that had been on the outside of the PML pan.

    Gaskets and Filters for PML C6 Pan

    PML Ford C6 tranny pan, inside   Ford C6 transmission filter kits  Click on image to view larger.

    These pictures show the inside of the PML pan and two possible filter kits for this PML pan.

    PML designed this pan to work with most stock gaskets and filters. This PML pan is NOT designed to work with the long pick up tubes that sit on the bottom of the pan.

    Filter supports are not needed as the filter bolts on to the valve body. The fluid level is at the same place with a PML pan or a stock pan so an extension is not needed.

    Both filter kits include a cork composite gasket, which we recommended for use with a PML transmission pan.

    These are from Fram and have part numbers FT1025a and FT1037a (longer pick-up spout show on right).

    Long Pick Up Tubes

    • The long pick up tubes that rest on the bottom of the pan would not rest on the bottom of the PML pan since the pan is deeper. The PML pan is NOT designed to support a pick up tube. If the tube should fall out of the main part of the filter, severe damage could result.
    • A customer with a 1987 F250 purchased the the FT 1055a C6 filter, which he used with his stock pan. This truck has the long pick up tube which connects to the filter with a gasket.
    • Tubes may have come with the stock pan from Ford.

    Letters on Housing Causing Interference?

    On a 1989 Bronco, a customer reported that the transmission housing had letters cast into it next to the flange. The letters were raised and hung down slightly below the housing flange mating surface.

    Because of the lettering, he was not able to get a good seal. The PML flange is thick and wide and extended slightly over the edge of the housing flange, hitting the letters. He ground of some of the flange on the PML pan with a belt sander. This allowed the pan to seat correctly and snugly.

    PML Ford C6 Pans Compared to Stock

    PML also makes a stock capacity C6 transmission pan, PML Part Number 11064, for applications that cannot accommodate a deep pan. The stock capacity pan is intended for the Ford 1960's and 1970's full size cars with the C6 transmission.

    The image shows three stock Ford C6 transmission pans with the PML deep and stock capacity pans. (Click on image to view larger picture.)

    The PML stock capacity C6 pan will not clear the frame cross members that run under the pan on some Ford trucks.
