LT77 Trans

Our 110 trans has been feeling a bit notchy lately and crunchy when cold while shifting up through 2nd and 3rd. I decided to replace the fluid with the Redline MTL since everything I've read about it has been very positive. After changing the fluid over I went on a quick drive and the shifting is definitely smoother...still a bit notchy, but not crunchy at all. Still when going into 3rd I get a bit of kickback, so what do you all think about that? Also the photos below shows a piece of metal which was on the magnetic drain plug...It had a good bit of the usual grime, but no other parts!! This is definitely a sliver, w all sides polished smooth except the longest side which seems like the area where it detached...any ideas?? The photos show the piece from 3 different sides. Thanks in advance!

If it is steel, that seems likely, if it is aluminium, I would think part of the casting.

And a very special bit of aluminum with magnetic properties!

Anyway, I wouldn't worry about it too much. Start saving those pennies for an eventual rebuild. In the meantime just keep driving it and see if anything else comes out.

It sticks to a magnet well and looks to be steel, so I bet the tooth tip is a good bet. We've put about 10k on it during the last year, and the trans still feels about the same, so hopefully it'll keep holding together for a while . It does have 115k on it though, so it's just a matter of time...
Thanks for the TIPS...ba da bing
