What did I tell ya? At this rate, I may get mine fixed first.

You have the worst luck ever man. First time my tranny died, it acted very similar. The TC was what failed.

As expected..the minute you want to take pictures...the darn batteries in the camera need to be recharged

Got two pictures before they died.

There'* some metal

On the magnet appears to be a pin of some sort. Once the batteries charge..I'll get many more.

AHHRGH! Metal shavings!! What the heck. How is this even possible? You do something really bad to harm your karma? I mean jees, you're one of the most generous and nicest people in this club and then this happens. Unfrigginbelieveable. Anyways, hopefully Intense will hook yah up on a new TC.

I don't think those metal pices are supoosed to be in there.

It certianly is a shame that the trans would fail so early after install. We are here to suppport you in any way we can, bud.

I ran this magnet through the pan of oil that drained from the transmission. The pan was new and clean before I drained. There is nothing I see to be worried about.

And we'll finish with the top of the filter. Some light pigmentation of the fluid coming out of the filter after being filtered...as expected.

Being that I haven't ever worked on a trans, I don't know where those little pins came from. I sure hope it'* the converter, but with the way things go... I don't know.
