Hello BMASTER61,

That transmission is a 1968 or later FMX transmission and that's where the dipstick tube inserts into.

Cheers

The large vertical hole is for the dipstick tube.
The small horizontal hole (fitting) is for the cooler line.
Someone did a swap because that’s a FMX, which came out in 1967.

That is weird because on my transmission pan there is a dip stick already built into it. So does that mean I have a different pan on the transmission. And if so does that mean I can just make a plug for the old hole. Because it makes a mess in my garage now
