I went to install a bts valve body today and the filter screen under the origional valve body was not there. Been runnin for who knows how long without it. Will I screw it up by installing the new vb w/o the screen?

Thanks

You need the screen. Go to a local trans shop and see if you can get one from them on the cheap.

Wait is he talking about the filter in the pan or the screen between the valvebody and case?

When I installed my vb I'm almost sure the trans was orig and had no screen between vb & case. It still does not have one.

Talking about the screen between the vb and trans body not the filter that draws fluid from the pan.

That's what I thought. Give Brian a call since you are in his neck of the woods. He could get you set right up.

I talked to Brian a couple days ago and he said not to worry about it. He mentioned that they see a lot of them with out the filter.

Thanks for the response guys

That screen is there to catch machining chips that are left over from the manufacturing process. You don't need to replace it.
