Andrew, I think I have your address memorized by now.

Bandit, slap an adhesive thermometer to your tranny pan, and after a good drive check the temp soon after. Use a mirror or slide under as far as you can without jacking the car up to see the temp before it cools down too much. The temp of the pan itself is all that matters in this case.

That'* not going to work too well. Envelopes go through steel sorting machines. You're going to jam up the works and shred your envelopes.

I'm looking into packaging them in something like this:
to try to avoid any problem like that....but maybe I should find some boxes anyway?

Really? Cruising on the highway after a long trip mine is ALWAYS about 20* cooler than the engine - ie 160* when the engine is 180*. It'* not until I start to get on it that it approaches, matches, and surpasses the engine. I've hardly ever seen mine over 200*. That goes for both the SLE with the 4T60-E and the SSEi with the 4T65E-HD

Yes, they are brittle if allowed to snap together. I've already cracked one. They won't always crack, but they can.

well after a 15min drive it got up to 53C (127F)

i think thats what the pan temp is going to be ruffly or i need to go for a longer drive

Now remember this is Pan temp. witch the magnets are going o be attached to... so...
i think they may work fine. because even if i went for a 30min drive, i dont think it would have got any hotter then 150F.




*edit*

and here is where i put it.
