new B&M trans pan wont fit??

I bought a B&M deep trans. pan off creigslist the other day for my 4r100, and when I went to install it it wouldnt fit. it seems to be rubbing on the pickup tube from the trans filter?? if I remove the filter it fits up into place just fine. Is there a difference between a 2wd and 4wd trans. pan or filter? im not sure what this B&M pan came off of, but mines 4wd. or could I just trim up the pickup tube on the filter? any ideas thanks.

The stock 4x4 pans are deeper. The 4x4 filter has a longer pickup neck than a 2wd filter.

I wouldn't use a deeper pan if it was given to me. The cooling should be done through an external cooler and the added capacity doesn't do what they claim.

If it was Deeper why did you need a short/2wd filter? I think you went backwards in technology.

after getting It I also thought maybe it was a step in the wrong direction, but I did a small experiment and the B&M pan does hold a little over 3 quarts more fluid than the stock pan, the reason the 4wd filter doesn’t fit is b/c the B&M pan has a completely flat bottom unlike the stock pan that is shaped to accommodate the filter with a longer pickup tube. This B&M pan paired with the 2wd filter will still be sucking from the bottom of the pan. also I do plan on going with a 6.0 cooler too, but I just picked this pan up for $50 so I figured a little extra fluid capacity couldn’t hurt. all I was really looking for was possibly someone who had ran into this same situation with a similar pan. Thanks

im running a PML pan... but if i could do it over again i would of just stuck with the stocker.... i have a total of 3 trans coolers which keep the trans oil temp in check.....

problem is that yes it adds 3 more qts and prob does keep it cooler for a lil bit but once it heats up your stock cooler has to cool down more oil... it will keep the oil hotter for longer period of time....
