I knew that the PowerFlites just had a strainer but I wasn't sure about the cast iron TorqueFlites until just now.

I see the pick-up/filter/strainer in the middle of this photo:



So I wonder what's on the other side. See below. Any alternatives?

since it has 2 pumps to feed, it would be difficult to adapt a filter but never say never.

If the cast iron hog is of the later type with oil cooler lines, the easiest would be to add an external filter, like the below for instance.

If it's the earlier air cooler type, then it's more of a challenge.

I had mine off this afternoon. I think that it could be done with two filters/pickups, one for each pump.

Just purchased this pickup/screen to cut up and play with, i.e. try to fit filters to.

The early 727 filter has two inlet holes to feed the two pumps.

BOY am I glad I follow these posts. I didn't think about the dual feed filter when I bought the deep pan kit. I'm going to to have to modify the spacer with an extra hole.

The external filter keeps the cooler clean but doesn't prevent the debris in the pan from getting sucked into the trans. The external filter is like a bypass filter on an engine, only part of the fluid flow goes through it.

In an ideal world, both an internal and external filter is the optimum.
