Re: [Chrysler300] FW: 300H in-line trans filter

Pretty sure FRAM makes a filter for this - there was a new one on my car when I bought it. Charlie in Ottawa

I think it is a good thing to keep or have . The  early trans had only a metal mesh, big holes really do not make it as a transmission filter . Metal dust is generated by normal wear. Somewhere around early 60's they went to Dacron fine pore TF filter to catch the small bad stuff . Then dropping the in line makes some sense . Same deal as engine oil. You could jump out that oil filter too .. Small bad stuff wipes out close fit smooth bearings and dirties or jams valve bodies. Wicked fussy today on this .. why fluids can be left in for 100k . I had trouble on and off with brand x power steering pumps wiping themselves out and putting junk in steering box. So started using a " transmission cooler return line filter " in ps return line to avoid pulling steering box to clean out.  ( nothing to lose? Was thinking ) it has worked ok . I do not have  a number , but believe it came from Napa. Looks like a huge gas line filter can , made of molded plastic . Not specific to Chrysler . So ask at Napa? Keep it . Even add it to pre 62 TF ? Also good is to add magnetic drain plug. I have done that on our rear ends too , and gives a way to drain it . BMW ones on line cheap. Get metric tap to put in . About 3/8" hole .

Here's an insane price for an NOS one.
What I have done with my '62's.....Is eliminated that inline filter.
I have 3 1962 Chrysler's and my transmission guy has said that for the amount of filtration captured by that filter....It's not worth the headache to keep trying to track those filters down.  And so, I eliminated it from the line.  Sounds cheesy; but I cut off the ends that screw into & onto the filter and grafted in a short rubber piece of hose with clamps.

Does anyone have a source or a lead for the in-line filter that is midway on one of the trans fluid cooling lines running to the radiator?
I didn't see anything about it on the Club website under H parts and had no luck searching for it on the web.
