The service person Dave Hodges talked to did not indicate if Ford had issued a TSB outlining the soaking of the seals or the mechanics had found this out on their own. Obviously leaking control valves was a problem very early on (and it continues to be) and just replacing the seals was not a permanent fix. Having worked on many different Fords including full size and Mustang the control valves and the seals changed many times until the system was finally dropped. Like many things that Ford engineered in the 50's and 60's you have to ask yourself what were they thinking.
