B&M pan question

for any of you that have used the large capacity B&M aluminum pan how did you attach the filter..B&M sends a longer bolt but then the filter just kinda hangs in the pan and does not seem secure to me..what did you do?

I used a deep B/M pan and still have the filter extension with somekind of clip.
I canīt remember where the clip came into play though.
Never had any problems with the dangly filter but loads with the deep pan scraping the ground on ramps etc.
It was chromed and soon looked like cr*p.
Check out the attchment, is it the same as yours ?

I did not get anything that looked like that clip?? i did have to raise the engine and trans about 11/2 inches to accomodate the deep pan. at least now the frame rails will hit before the pan on the speed bumps we have here. i may have to egamaneer a better filter attachment as the way it is now the first bump the filter and tube may come off and with no oil well the tranny will go..makes me nervous..

yes a th400 it is..on the stocker the filter bolts up tight to the bottom of the trans with a special shouldered bolt..with the deeper pan the filter oil pickup needs to be dropped down about an inch or so...Now that I have brainstomed a bit i will make a shouldered bolt that mounts the filter/oil pickup down to the bottom of the pan and that holds the filter securely..For the price of this thing B&M could have included a proper fastener in the kit..Grrrrr..this is part number 20288 i believe on the B&M site..the nice cast aluminum deep oil pan

All you need is a longer bolt and a sleeve made out of a piece of 3/8 steel fuel line. Bolt, then filter, then sleeve, then bolted to valvebody. Sleeve keeps the filter down against the bolt head tight so it doesn't flop around.

Factory long bolt is still available from GM.

EDIT: I see both the Moroso and the Jegs have the sleeve and bolt.
