Diesel site tranny filter, easy to install?

I just got the diesel site external tranny filter. Is it pretty easy to install? Any tips on doing it? I have a job 1 if that matters or not.

Ya its pretty easy to install. The worst parts are mounting the filterhead and figuring out where you want to run the lines. No tips I can think of, just make sure you use flare nut wrenches.

I see you have both the diesel site coolant and trans filters. Got a pic of how you mounted yours?

assuming you have the early job 1 divorced filter ( either near the bell housing or the toilet paper roll up front depending on build date) and in pan screen

return or sell that kit and get the job 2 in pan real filter and a OEM ,Derale,Mag pan and filter fluid 100% of the time vs
a small percentage run through the cooler lines that are bypassed most times

Doesn't the dieselsite kit filter the fluid 100%? I think it does but I am not sure.

if so then it can't and I also can't think of how they would rig it any other way ?

This is from their website...

We have the only full flow system on the market with a built in bypass valve. This insures that should the filter plug with debris, fluid will still return to the transmission. A filter housing with a bypass valve is NOT the same as a bypass filter. A bypass filter typically "samples" the fluid and filters only a small amount on each pass. As the filter gets dirtier, less will get sampled and more unfiltered oil returns to the pan. Our unit -- a housing with a bypass valve-- filters ALL the fluid on every pass when the filter is clean. Only when the filter becomes very dirty does it enter "bypass mode". At that point it will act as a "sampling" type filter similar to the bypass filter.

I will go on record to say there info is flawed in a few areas

like making it easy to drain the converter
Quote:
Allows the addition of the transmission flush valve to make torque converter purging easier.
thats BS unless you can keep the trany up to 180* and the fill fluid at the same temp otherwise the cooler circuit will not have full flow

and the comment on the in pan screen since We all know ford has put a real filter on the suction side despite the comments diesel site states that is not possible LOL

oh and they state no more pan drop but fail to mention the newer 5r110w in pan filter will catch debris long before the filter in a bypass cooler will so it will need regular service
