You don't want one, they're $100! Got a pic somewhere, just haven't found it as yet.

When I did the conversion to spin on filter on my LGT 145 the filter is a Fram PH16.

Is from when I did mine.

Welcome great looking GT. I love the Ford's I have and they are real workers. The folks on here really know their stuff.

Starting to work  on my new to me jake. I have a hydro leak around the filter housing. Anyone had this issue and how much and what kind of fluid to refil? What filter will fit?  Appreciate  any advice.

The reason I asked if the lines were tight as there is a drip on one of the fittings in your pic!

If you have the spin on filter setup , you will want to make sure the adapter fittings are tight in the filter housing! This is where mine on my 125 was leaking from.remove them and clean the threads spotless and reinstall with red loc-tite/ sealer they will not leak or ever loosen up again until warmed ( 350+°) . GM uses this stuff on all their threaded coolant fittings and coolant sensors good stuff .

The filter was loose I tightened it, but didn't  stop it. Maybe  a new one will solve it. What do you mean by an in line?

In post 5, 3rd pic, Will has one peeking out in this thread.

By the way make sure you clean the fins on the tranny 

 

I was going to suggest that, also. Way too dirty to be cooling effectively.
