If you don't remove all of the safety rags from your transmission, it renders the rag(s) left in COMPLETELY useless.
That's why I recommend ONE.
Even I can remember that, well most of the time....
Hopefully the chewed up rag parts don't render your oil tube clogged and useless. I expect you have an auxiliary oil line, might be a good idea to make sure it is clear.
Erik, thank's for the reminder but I took things apart and blew the stuff out. What a mess!!
I would imagine that white cotton rags would not do as much damage as polyester or a nylon blend rag that might tend to melt and turn into a sticky blob. Jim Patrick
