    Definitely doing both at once...mechanic said the marvel stuff has detergents in it that will break up the 30 year old crud that has built up over time

    Naw.
    Fresh oil does also. Don't risk swelling any seals till it's time.

    Been driving around still moving my stuff.
    Been thinking my last comment was to short and going to try it again.
    Oil has it's own detergents to help keep things clean.
    You don't want any additives if all is working correctly.

    Bottom line;
    Never kick a sleeping dog. :D:D:D

    Changed both remote filters on the back of the trannys...little bit of sludge in the bottom of the canister...both trannys had maybe a half shot glass of sludge combined

    Rite where the mud should be. Shop vac it out and reassemble.
    Try not to stick anything in there to get more, you may just loosen it and never get the last out. That's why I have a trashed shop vac and small pick up hose (3/4").
    Marvel oil may have loosened it but may have re-suspended it in the oil and spread it every ware again.

    We don't want to stress the seals quicker than need be.

    I understood the screen cannot be cleaned unless the tranny is pulled, so said the local Cap gear rep.

    I found an old PDF Cap Clutch manual.
    Manual says pull the screen every 400 hours for cleaning.
    Some installations may not give you the room to service the screens.

    PM me with your real address and I can send a copy. It's about 2.8mb.
    Looks like I downloaded it 1 1 2015 from somewhere.
