Of course, Ford recommended the kit called out in the TSB in the bottom of this caption:



But I've never seen it, and IF I've ever read its instructions, it was only in a TSB. I don't even know if that PN is still available, but I assume it's comparable to the MagneFine linked in that caption. Mark might know for sure, but I've used MagneFines on several trucks.

I'd save that for engine oil on something else. The inline trans filter doesn't mount - it's so small & light that it hangs from the hard lines.

I can confirm that the ATF filter in the TSB is a Magnefine (you might find equal product with a Raybestos label).

I believe Ford has since stopped encouraging their installation and speculation was owners were failing to maintain the recommended change interval of 10,000 miles which would result in the filter eventually becoming plugged and restricting flow through the coolers.

As long as they are changed out within that 10K miles then I have not heard of any negative feedback.

I am approaching my service interval so I just ordered one this morning off ebay for $15 delivered but you should not have to pay more than $25.

There is a specific location you will want to mount this and its important that your hose does not kink when installed. My factory lines were 3/8" but were enlarged to 1/2"" when I did a 6.0 cooler upgrade. You will want to confirm your own. Two hoseclamps should be included with the filter.

Just don't forget the filter is a maintenance item. ;-)

Raybestos owns MagneFine. If you find a Magnefine that doesn't say Raybestos, it's a counterfeit, and they ARE out there.

I corrected my above post.

These Magnefine/Raybestos filters are labeled 12month/10,000-mile change intervals and not 15,000 as I had originally indicated.

Steve,

Can you provide additional details of counterfeits you have found.

I ordered one Raybestos from a supplier on Ebay and it arrived without a factory box or hose clamps. I held it up next to another new one I had and the casing appears the same and the weight is similar (no scale available) but absent a box And after reading your post??

May sound funny but it does smell identical to the confirmed legit one I have...an easily identifiable factory smell.

Here is something interesting. The Magnefine filters have just switched housing material:

I haven't found any counterfeits because I only buy the ones that say Raybestos. But there are plenty of reviews on Amazon, eBay, & elsewhere of crappy "Magnefines" that don't say Raybestos or "made in Australia" on the labels.

And I only buy the bulk ones - no packaging or clamps.



I'm surprised they waited this long to change housings. They've been arguing with customers for years over replacing just the filter cartridges in the plastic screw-together housings. Now, it's moot.

It looks like the Raybestos are the ones being pirated:

https://acurazine.com/forums/1g-rdx-...copies-887394/

The Raybestos I just bought is made in China while authentic Magnefine appear to be exclusively Australian made.

The days of USA products being of an assumed high quality are long gone...a guy has to go to Australia to get quality anymore ;-)
