1. On new vehicles (less than 5,000 miles),
it is recommended that the filter be installed on the cooler supply
side to protect the cooler from contamination. On in-service vehicles
(more than 5,000 miles), the filter should be installed in the return
line from the cooler to the transmission. On any vehicle that has experienced
any transmission difficulty, the filter should be placed on the return
2. Locate a section of the cooler line that
has 12 inches of straight tubing or hose for filter installation in
the cooler line.
3. Cut a 9 inch section of the steel cooler
tubing, from the middle of the 12 inch straight section in the cooler
line or a 3.75 inches of the cooler rubber hose. Clean and de-burr cut
4. Assemble the filter for installation (per
assembly figure). Use hose and fittings for steel tubing installation.
Use filter only for rubber hose installation.
