Hi everyone

I purchased a R380 transmission from Ashcroft. I recently flushed the fluid after driving about 2500 miles and the results left me worried. The bolt had a lot of shavings of metal and the transmission oil was completely black and I noticed a milky wave as well as other small pieces of metal in the oil. I have attached pictures below: is this normal? Should I be worried?

The MTL should have been fine. I would flush the box a few times and then get some miles on it and see. Is it shifting okay?
