ZF6 cooler pump

Ok, I have done some research but can't find anything.

I have a ZF6 and recently added the DieselSite transmission filter. I ordered the pressure gauge with it but I never get a reading. I have disconnected the lines with the truck running but I do not get any flow.

However, my fittings were leaking (did not have enough teflon tape) and the lines had fluid in it. The general consesus is that the pump runs when the engine is running but it seems to only run with the truck in gear. I have done everything short of putting the rear on jack stands and putting it in gear.

Is anybody here familiar with these pumps and how they operate?

Thanks,

Interesting. I will run that by Bob@DieselSite tomorrow. I believe you are correct.

However, after taking her out for a test drive it appears pressure is building because I am getting a little fluid leak around the seal of the filter.

Can I get a little more info on your filter set up? Base,filter and which line do you hook it to. I would want the line leaving the tranny and I am not sure which one that is. Thanks!

hope this helps...got everything from fleetfilter.com. Use the p/n from filter to corrospond to correct filter base..(using thread pitch from filter). I used the bumper bracket bolts, installed filter base to 3/16" flatstock, and drilled holes for the bumper bolts to protrude thru it. Then nylon nutted it up. Follow the tranny lines, and you'll see what one goes to/from tranny...
