Hi
Have to replace the control valve hoses. Did this 9 years ago. Can't remember but are all the threads RH or are there some LH threads on the hoses.
Also been using regular PS fluid should I switch to F transmission fluild.

I think everything on the Fords are right hand thread. Old Chrysler Dodge and Plymouth stuff had left hand threads on the lug nuts on one side. If you're emptying the system or starting new, I would use Type F because that's what they were designed for. The Mercon Dexron stuff can be used in older Ford transmissions etc if starting empty but don't mix the two.

Thanks

Well it is empty as I was pulling out of my parking spot one hose blew, lucky that way. Right in front of house and the last time the hoses blew the engine was hot and sprayed on the exhaust, smoke everywhere... I remember they are not easy to install not much room for a wrench...
