61 comet, 144cu, 2 speed trans. transmission fluid question

Post by 61 Waycrosscomet »

I have a 61 comet 4 door. 2 speed trans. Hasn't run in probably 30 years maybe. Should I change out the trans and converter fluid? If so the shop manual says to use 'A' type fluid. I
can't find it. I assume they don't make it anymore? what is the best equivalent? OR, should I just leave well enough alone. I can't imagine this fluid is any good anymore.
Thoughts and suggestions much appreciated. John.m

Trans fluid Ford Type "F". Filter is only cleanable, not replaceable. Clean with brake cleaner. Get a new pan gasket before you start.
