Fine Metal in Trans (NEW)

I am looking for some expert advice. I recently installed a professionally rebuilt Chevy Overdrive 700R4 street/Strip trans. I flushed the radiator and trans cooler part of the radiator with flush followed by compressed air. I installed new trans cooling lines, and a new 2000 Stall torque converter. There was a small amount of fine metal pieces in the pan before installation which was thoroughly cleaned before it was installed. I put brand new Dextron III trans fluid in the unit. The TV cable and an inline magnetic filter were installed. The trans was run for less than 30 minutes and shut down as the TV cable was not working properly. The pan was drained and pulled to gain access to the valve body and valve. I found a lot of metal and non metallic ( possibly aluminum) pieces in the pan, filter and valve body. Could enough metal to cause valve body problems come form the radiator trans cooler ? The Raiator is in good shape. As always Thanks for the help.

I would think enough could come from the trans cooler to make valves stick open or even blow up a pump. Ive only did 2 trannys but i was told to buy special flush for the lines and cooler, rather than just air.
