    Hello -

    Looking for suggestions recommendations on adding Oil Filter, Transmission Pan, and Differential Case Magnets.
    I see " FilterMag " sells a variety of these magnets.

    Suggestions ?
    Thanks!

    I see all kinds of those things, tranny maganets that wrap around the line, or oil filter magants that wrap around the filter and trap it in the filter when change a new oil filter on swap over the magnet. Magnets to wrap aroudn the fuel line to get better mileage, snake oil parts, never got one but do laugh when I see them.

    Really if you are starting to get alot of metal shavings and more so into the bronze shavings your motor is looking at a rebuild anyway, when you see bronze shavings in the engine oil.
