Trans filter for ZF6 ?

Is there a way to put a trans filter on a ZF6 ? Maybe in one of the lines going to the factory cooler?

I'm from the heavy duty world and ours have filters on them. I'd feel a lot better if I could put one in it.

Any ideas?

I'd perer to use a Baldwin filter also

Is there anything special about the filter base or is just a normal Baldwin base?

I have that filter here at my house I bought. Now if the filter has the bypass is built in. It'd be a normal base and I can fab lines to work no problem ( I work at a john deere dealership and can have hi pressure lines made for cheap )

I can build the bracket to Mount it to frame myself also.

Any ideas?

I think the base has the bypass built in and you can use baldwin filters

Any leaks with just using the rubber line and clamps?

That's a lot cheaper than the pressure hose id use. Which line is the feed line to the cooler from the trans ? I wanna hook it up how diesel site has it
