Dieselsite Tranny/Coolant Filtration

Just recently installed Dieselsite's Tranny and Coolant filter bypass system's. Great instructions and a pretty easy install. Only issue I had was needing about 5' more of line for the Coolant bypass system, because of where I chose to mount it.





I turned the coolant mount sideways to keep it above the bottom of the frame rail. It has dual shutoff valves, so the amount of coolant drained during filter changes is minimal.


The whole thing clears my AMP steps while they're retracted.

I have a very similar setup, except I chose not to put in the trans power flush valve. I don't have the amp steps so I was able to mount the coolant filter a little farther forward and had plenty of hose supplied to get everything hooked up.

On a side note, is there anywhere to source replacement filters from other than the internet? Is there an auto parts store equivalent?

Check around, most heavy truck shops carry baldwin filters. If they dont carry baldwin, then they usually have fleetguard and could cross reference part numbers for you. Both baldwin and fleetguard are good filters.

Faster than the coolant install. The instructions are good on finding the return line. Just unplug it, install the lines, mount the filter and you're done. Probably about a 1/2 hour taking your time. You do lose a littler Tranny fluid, but not much. Good to have2 qts on hand to top off the lines, filter, and lost fluid though.

Wanted the flush, because I have a tranny service in 8k and don't feel like wasting that much money having them do the same thing.
