There is nothing quite like seeing your First Generation Ford Mustang in showroom condition once more, but restoring your classic pony can be a rather strenuous process at times. In addition to welding scores of sheet metal parts onto the body and refurbishing the inner cabin, you must also rebuild the transmission system before you are ready to take your vintage muscle car out of the garage and back onto the roadway once more.
Like the braking and HVAC systems, the transmission requires a number of hoses and lines that safely transfer fluid from point A to point B, including the transmission cooler lines. When coolant becomes too hot and unworkable, the cooler lines filter the fluid back into the radiator, where it can be cooled down to a normal temperature.
Transmission coolant lines are abundant in all Mustang transmission systems, but older pony cars with a C4 or C6 automatic transmission also require an additional hose in order to function. Along with the coolant lines, many First Generation builds came complete with a Mustang transmission vacuum line. Ford Mustang transmission vacuum lines are essential transmission components that allow for smooth and proper shifts for those vintage muscle cars.
Vacuum hoses are still prominent in the present day, but they were far more common in older vehicles. Many early electrical systems could not handle a vast number of accessories at once, so those particular builds relied on vacuum lines to transmit vacuum from the manifold to wherever it needed to go. In the case of the transmission system, the all-important Mustang transmission vacuum line transports vacuum to the necessary ports, which allows your car to seamlessly shift gears when needed.
Along with the vacuum line, it is also important to be cognizant of your Mustang vacuum modulator from the factory. Similar to the vacuum lines, Ford Mustang modulators receive vacuum from the intake manifold and controls transmission pressure. Also known as the throttle valve, this valve controls vacuum to the transmission as you press the gas pedal and it will apply higher control pressure for better quality shifts at a higher RPM.

Ford Mustang transmission vacuum lines are made of either rubber or steel. Rubber and steel hoses have their benefits but both materials have their drawbacks as well. The steel Mustang transmission vacuum line can rust and corrode over time leaving holes or completely fall apart altogether. The rubber hose sections of the line can also become dry rot, leaving holes and cracks that reduce vacuum needed for smooth operation of the transmission.
If your stock vacuum line is on its last leg, it is important to swap it out for a replacement hose as soon as possible.
