Not to discourage anyone, merely encourage more thoughts..

While Pete was over..we chatted briefly about the magnets. Now I'm wondering..do they put a weak magnet in for a reason? What are the true ramifications of using a stronger than expected magnet....can it affect the valve bodies or other parts from working properly?

I'd like to know for sure too. I guess that would be a question for the company'* that sell them... Those thoughts have crossed my mind from the beginning. The distance between the magnets and any moving part may be the biggest factor.

I hope they are found to be safe, because they'd surely work better.

Are they intended for being on transmission pans?

I couldn't find any uses listed for transmission pans when I researched, but maybe they just didn't think of it. I have time to research more before they come in.

Just found this....
Quote:
Oil Filters
Our magnets are often used in oil pans, on oil filters or elsewhere to filter metal chips out of oil. Be aware that standard neodymium magnets will lose strength if heated over 178F. If your application involves higher temperatures, see our D66SH (Super High Temp) cylinders or D82SH discs.

Here'* another interesting one: (taken from http://www.kjmagnetics.com/uses.asp )

Quote:
Making your own Fuel Mileage Extender
Very similar to the water conditioning magnets. Many people believe that strong magnets placed on a fuel line leading to the engine will increase gas mileage and reduce emissions. Two neodymium magnets placed on opposite sides of a fuel line will do the same thing as the expensive "fuel extenders" being sold elsewhere.
I'll go find the link Mark....brb

I did not get any special high temp magnet. The reason is that I (and probably most) will be putting these on the outside of the pans, and will not heat up to such an extreme temperature.

So the fluid inside the pan doesn't heat through the pan?

Well I figured being outside the pan the outside air would help keep it cooler. Of course this is all just a hypothesis. I'd have to test the temp of a warmed up tranny pan.

No uses I've found so far specifically say Transmission pan, but if it'* good for an oil pan I'd guess it'* good for a tranny pan as ATF is "oil." Thoughts?
