PML's extra capacity transmission pan for fits Ford C6 transmissions which are found on 1960's and 1970's full size cars and pre-1988 Ford vans, motor homes, suvs, and trucks. For example, the C6 transmission is commonly found on:
This PML pan design features steps for vehicles with cross members or other clearance issues. The extra capacity comes from the deep sump in the middle of the pan. Please check your vehicle carefully using the dimensions above for clearance and to verify the transmission installed on your truck or SUV.
PML Ford C6 Pans Compared to Stock
PML also makes a low profile C6 transmission pan for applications that cannot accommodate a deeper pan. This low profile pan is intended for the Ford 1960's and 1970's full size cars with the C6 transmission.

Gaskets and Filters for PML C6 Pan
This picture shows the inside of the PML pan.
PML designed this pan to work with stock gaskets and filters.
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.
This shows two possible filter kits for Ford C6 transmissions. They both include a rubber-cork type gasket, which we recommended for use with a PML transmission pan.
These are from Fram and have part numbers FT1025 and FT1037 (longer pick-up spout show on right).

A customer with a 1987 F250 purchased the the FT 1055a C6 filter, which he used with his stock pan. This filter has a pick up tube connected to the filter with a gasket. Although the gasket holds the tube in place, the tube probably rested on the bottom of the stock pan. 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.
