Add Magnefine Transmission Filter

Hey everybody,
Has anyone used a Magnefine Filter on their transmission lines? If so which is the supply and return side? Any help would be greatly appreciated, as all of the schematics I've looked at just tell you to remove the supply and return and don't specify driver/pass etc.
Ford recommends the use of a Magnefine filter be installed on any rebuilt transmission. The Ford part if you remove the label is placed over the Magnefine brand. To me this is stupid cheap money not to add one of these when doing a fluid change as it can only prolong the life of your transmission.

Thanks

Unless it has the capability to clog up.....
I think magnetic drain plugs ( and chip detectors on Huey's ) and magnets attached to the bottom of transmission or oil pans are great..... but would worry that if something really started to be eaten up...and would be attracted to a magnet then it could also starve the rest of the machine for lubrication....
Does it have some ' pilot notifying ' indicator which would alert you to something serious happening as you drive ?

Welcome to the forum....

Leather these have very good flow rates and a bupass valve if they did start to clog. Here's the link. I have installed them previously. But am looking for info regarding the direction of flow of fluid.

the way I tell flow direction in a transmission is disconnect the lines and see which one flows fluid...

If it has a bypass valve that would answer the clogging issue.

Questions are what type of pressure is actually in those lines? Meaning is there enough pressure available to open the Bypass Valve if the Filter became clogged.

@JOHNT49 Thanks for this. For some reason it is what I presumed but didn't want tranny fluid all over the driveway to have to find out. What is your ATSG?

Yeah, when we were putting E40D/4R100 and 5R100 trans in the Ford Super Duty trucks left and right, Ford gave us this very filter to plumb in line with ALL exchange units, otherwise it voided the trans warranty. It does have the bypass feature, so I would say use it if you wish. Greg is right too. I think that a powerful magnet at the bottom of the pan works just as well.
