Does your fill tube go into the pan or into the case itself.

Hi John,

It goes into the pan.

Attached are some pics:
First one is the gasket that fits.
Second one is the gasket I get when I order one for a 1959 bird with 352.
Third is a pic of modulator value.
Last one is a pic of one of the servos which has a crack in it. I am wondering if that is a problem.

Thanks,
Tom

Yeah, the second gasket definitely looks wrong. For some reason parts dealers have trouble getting the correct transmission kits for the MX/cruise-o-matics. I never have been able to find the correct filter. I always have to reuse the old one. As for the servo maybe Dave would know. I imagine it will get worse over time. Other than the modulator valve the transmission is pretty much identical to the original '59 transmission.

Thanks for the information John.
Dave, would you be able to provide me any information on the servo (crack) and should I hook the modulator up to my vacuum or just cap it off?
Thanks,
Tom

Tom,

You MUST hook the modulator up to engine vacuum or it will not shift correctly.
