    I have a feeling a new filter and new fluid won't be good enough.

    wasp!!

    I found a wasp in the paper element gas filter that goes in the carb under the big fuel inlet line nut on my sisters Vega many years ago!..how it got past the "sock" filter on the electric fuel pump is beyond me!..:eek1:

    As for your tranny pan...looks fatal to me..I have pulled many pans,and am not scared to see some clutch pack dust,or even brass metallic filings..but big chunks with steel or aluminum embedded in them are definately a bad omen!..start saving up for a rebuilt tranny...you haven't "lost" 3rd gear..you found it at the bottom of the pan!:( ....

    Your right I found third, that was funny,
    I just bought this truck out of auction, ran fine through the line, but after I paid for it, it was a different story trying to drive it home. Anyone in San Diego got a K-case?

    my torque converter came to peices inside last summer it put a quarter inch of metal fillings in the bottom of my pan it. It was a shame though that transmisson still shifts great Im hoping it will survive for a while but Im sure it wont be long before it dies.

    From what I can tell from the parts in the bottom of the pan it shelled a roller clutch(sprag) and if there is a lot of fine metal shavings in the oil junk the trans because of the metal in the valve body. If it lost all forward gears it is the direct clutches that burned up.

    I only lost third, the fluid was a little burnt, I didn't see any fine metal, but I wasn't looking for it either. how obvious would it be?

    :xmas: Open it up! Now it's just a matter of how soon you want to get back on the road; swap or rebuild.
