    Yep. IIRC the federal mandate is one year after current calendar year. Used to be August / September MY switch but manufactures started pushing that a long time ago. (99 super duty...)

    Sorry for the hijack.

    If you want to keep rust away never change your gaskets and just let the oil fly!!! lol fords famous oil undercoating starts when your trucks old enough to start rusting and gradually ads more oil over time to keep the rust away forever! Add an exhaust leak or two and it repaints the frame black forever too

    My '92 with the E4ONO has that drain tube. When your transmission front pump seal fails, you can watch it pump out all it's ATF out through that tube. I know this one from experience:Thumbs Up

    Whenever I cross a grade, when I get to the other side I always stop as soon as I can and look underneath my truck to see if that tube is wet. The problem has long since been fixed, but the paranoia will never go away LOL

    That would be a 93 model year. Back in the day the "new" model year started in either August or September, don't remember exactly what one.. So production date of 11/92 is 93...

    "Back in the day"? Um, when was the last time you looked in a new car showroom in September or October, and DIDN'T see the next year's models out? That's been going on for 50+ years, and still is.

    But when were they introduced? And more importantly, when were they first built?
