John is correct on the B-41 filter. The other one is also for a medium case Cruise-O-Matic but for later years, not the Large case. The part number trail from the Ford part to aftermarket gets quite involved and has a few errors.

The pan seal in the kit has the exact size. I think I will go for the "cleaning the old filter" option, since sending a new filter will take several weeks and the shipping costs will be just too expensive.
Looking at the Rockauto site for the ATP-B41 filter kit, I see also two O-rings in the kit, are they suppost to go on the pump inlets? There was nothing on it now and also nothing in the kit I received.
And is there an alternative for the fluid type F? Can´t find it in Brazil.

We'll see what some of the old timers say about this, but I recently had my trans rebuilt by a shop that works on a lot of the old Ford COM's etc and when I ask them what they use for fluid, they told me DEX/Merc. Don't have a lot of miles on the tranny, but that is what they use. Here's a link to the Castrol site that says it is okay for older Fords. https://www.castrol.com/en_cc/ccsa/p...-dex-merc.html

Old original transmissons need the type F but recently rebuilt ones have different face material on the friction surfaces and modern fluids can be used with them.
Or so I'm led to believe.

Type A ATF was used 'back in the day' as a replacement for type F.

Thanks for the answers guys. Since i have no idea when the transmission was rebuild (which i at least expect to have happened once), i probably will stick with a Type A fluid, which i can buy here locally.
Edit: just checked the P/N of the filter (Pioneer) and its equivalent to a B-41. So it should be the correct filter.

I don't see a Pioneer filter available from Rockauto. What's the part number.

I checked it as well before and couldn´t find it anymore also. I bought it with Rockauto in December last year. P/N Pioneer 745006.
I also see this part on e-bay and it confirms to fit a 1958 T-bird with 352. Alternate number B-41.

According to the Rockauto catalog Pioneer 745006 fits 1963 and later transmissions. I wouldn't go by what Ebay says. The Pioneer catalog is vague at best. Is there a tag on your transmission. Maybe it was changed at some point.

The order from Rockauto I have here from last year mentioned this filter for the 58 bird with 352. Now it doesn´t anymore. But on the filter box is stated that its equivalent to the B-41.
I will check tomorrow the data plate on the transmission, I have no access to the car now. The rubber pan seal at least is of the right size.
By the way, how can I directly add a picture to a message?
