(1968 Ford with FMX-MX Automatic Transmission)


The transmission front pump check valve and spring, formerly located in the regulator assembly, were removed from the subject transmissions, effective Job 1, 1968.

  • Page 7-83 - Under the paragraph entitled Pressure Regulator, delete the second sentence from Step 3 and delete Step 10 entirely.
