My '03 Allison has an external 'C' shaped magnet on the drivers side of the oil pan. No clip or anything, its just stuck on the side of the pan. I've owned the truck since new, so I'm assuming it came from the factory that way. Do others have this magnet?

I think someone drove a hockey puck into your tranny pan. Better have that thing looked at.

Looks like some guys musta been having some fun when it was put together. Its a pretty strong magnet and has probably caught a few shavings in the pan by now (9500 miles). Guess I'll leave it there...

Yeah.............. don't move it unless you're taking the pan off, you wouldn't want to free up a bunch of metal debris all at once.....

it would be intersting to see what was stuck to the inside of the pan, if anything since its been on since new. if you ever pull the pan take a picture
.


Something tells me you shouldn't see much. when i replaced my pan i didn't see anything. granted it could be in either filter too...


yet again i guess you could stick a spare key to it....


I must admit when i first saw it i thought of filtermag...

Thanks for the replies on this. Looks like I have a 'one off' factory mod. I'm now thinking I'll remove it. There should not be much, if any anything stuck in the pan. If there is, and it creates a problem, I'd rather have it happen while under warrenty.
