Post 700r (how much on the magnet)

I just did the filter and put on a trans cooler on the 700r in my suburban. I have only done one other 700r and the rest t400's. What do you guys consider normal build up on the magnet in the pan. My pan was quite clean and had a build up of about 1/8 inch of the gray sludge on the magnet. I pumped the fluid through until the new stuff came out so should be nice and clean in there now.
thanks

That sounds about normal for something with some mileage on it.

Cool

It's best to break open the filter and look inside. The 700 flows lots of fluid and can tend to keep the pan some what clean unless a major failure happens.

I hope you removed the filter sealing sleeve that usually sticks inside the pump bore before you installed the new filter

I didn't pull the gasket out and I am not sure if it was on the filter or not. There was enough fluid dripping down that I probably wasn't watching properly. I did the 700 in my other car 50000 miles ago and don't remember taking out of that either and it is working fine. The one I just did drives fine with no abnormal shift or things like that. What would the symptoms be if there was a problem with the old gasket still being in there and the new one having a gasket. I will drop it and check if required but it is a messy job and would like any opinions on the subject.
thanks

Cool

the problem is sometimes the plastic part of the filter will crack with two filter seals in place.

Seen it many times over the years.

my site has some photos of this:

I will drop the pan in the next few days and check the filter.
