    Sorry about that. Helps to give all the info. Its a TH350. It is black plastic about 1/2 to 3/4 dia. and maybe 1" long. I went to B&Ms website and they say nothing about it. Is there a website that might show the th350 in a disassembled view.

    not sure bout the 350, but I had 2 of em when I rebult the 700. They fit right into two fluid passages in the valve body, one Im pretty sure went into the oil pump, but it was a few years ago. Another went to the converter lockup IIRC. But again, it was a 700 w/ lockup converter. Maybe a hole in the oil pump? Good luck

    I have found 2 spots that it would fit into but the filter is directional and I don't know enuff about transmissions to know if fluid is flowing in either area let alone the direction its flowing.:confused:

    First picture is a 1977 TH-350 on it's side. Bellhousing to left, tailshaft to right. Use this orientation when you reference these pictures.

    [​IMG]

    Second picture I am pointing to the screen location at the top right, there are two similar holes.

    [​IMG]

    Third picture close up, notice the filter in the lower of the two holes. The screen should only fit that lower hole but double check. On mine the upper hole is to small to accept the screen.

    [​IMG]

    And again without the screen

    [​IMG]

    Picture of the filter screen, I have the older style metal. Sounds like you have the newer style plastic.

    Hope that helps you.

    OK I found the filter that you are refering to. That is still there and is about half the size of the one that fell out. I looked some more and the only place I can that it fits is: in your first picture, from the farthest bolt hole (not pan bolt)in the upper left corner , it is then down and to the right about an inch there is a hole about 5/8" diameter. Could this be the spot. Maybe it came out of the valve body? I'll go look somemore.

    Ah, okay. You lost the big one.

    Use the orientation we talked about in this thread, bellhousing left and tailshaft right. Now look in the top left corner of your valve body. There is a round hole it should fit in. Your filter should also have a round closed end and an open end. Make sure the closed end faces up toward you and the open end faces the transmission body. The filter will stand up just about even with the valve body machined edge, at least it does on mine.

    Let me know if you figure it out, if not I take another photo and post it. It sounds like you are looking in the right place based on your last post.

    Pics of Large Filter

    Okay Derbinator.

    Here are the pics of the large filter in the upper left. One end of that filter should be rolled over or double thickness - In other words only one end should fit snugly, if you put the wrong end down it will not fit. Your open end should face down and the closed end should face up.
