NAS D110 Transmission Filter (Auto Trans)

I have a NAS 110 with an automatic transmission. I had to pull the radiator and get it fixed due to a leak, and figured that while I had it out I might as well do the A/T filter change.

so the big question is:

Can the filter/pan be removed (filter replaced) without moving the brace?


The funny story (somewhat related, but secondary to the question)....

That particular brace is quite hard to move, it's held in place by what (mostly) seems to be dirt and grime. I've got it to move a small distance, but not nearly as far as the video seems to indicate. Unfortunately, after a significant amount of banging it moved forward but also *up*, a worrisome development, since making it move back down didn't look very easy, since there's no way to bang on it from the top.

I ended up using a fence post from my yard along with some tow straps to suspend the post on the brace, with ends of the post sticking out either side of the car, then having two adults jump up and down on the post to get it to move (we tried the same thing with blocks against the frame and wratcheting the straps to pull the brace downwards, but that wasn't nearly as effective/fun as jumping on the post.) Anyhow, now it's moved back down (to give slightly more than the original "gap" between the pan and the top of the brace.) But it's still not "out of the way by any means"...

Yes you need to get that cross member out. If you have a friend with a hi lift jack you're in bidniz. Use the jack between the frame rails as a spreader and push the chassis rails apart. Doesn't take much and the crossmember will come out super easy.
Sometimes they rust-weld in place

Do I need to pull the exhaust downpipe also to remove the support, or is just dropping it down far enough to get the job done?

I'll give it a shot tomorrow - sounds easy-peasy, thanks!!!

We have a 110 with auto as well and did this same job last week. We/Trey dropped the exhaust y-pipe and then spread the chassis with the porta power.

Be careful and use wooden blocks or similar where you touch the chassis with whatever you use as its only 14 gauge steel there and can easily be deformed.

So another question while on the topic..

One of the brace bolts was through what (was probably once) a heat shield of some type. At this point, it's just a broken piece of cardboard. Is the heat shield necessary (hasn't been there for a long time as far as I can tell)? If so I can replace it (anyone know the part number?)

That heatshield protects the t-case rubber mount. I think I have seen one intact.

Do not use a hi-lift jack to try and spread your frame rails---too uncontrolled and awkward.
Use a small bottle jack and a pipe or 4x4, but like Unc Doug said the metal is flimsy.
Only takes a few milimeters of spread and it will drop right out with some rust and dirt, too.

You can buy a hydraulic kit like this, 4 ton Heavy Duty Portable Hydraulic Equipment Kit, to do the job. It comes in handy lots of times. A hi-lift is a PITA and a standard bottle jack won't work in the horizontal position. After you've done the filter swap get a disposable inline transmission filter, Magnefine, to install in the cooler line. It will catch all of the small micron crap that the pan filter can't. You'll never have to change the pan filter again. The stock filter is only good stopping small rodents and lost tools.

Unhappy Stuck

So I was able to remove the brace using a Porta power. Now the issue is the fill tube for the transmission pan.

It's stuck - really stuck. So much so that I deformed the pan slightly trying to get it off.

Any ideas on how to remove it?

Thanks

What size Magnefine - 1/2" or 3/8" - I assume I just cut the hose going to the transmission cooler, stick the barb in for the magnefine and clamp it in place? Looks like a great idea..
