Hey guys, can anyone tell me what the hell this thing is?
It looks like an original filter but there's absolutely no reference to it in any of our books.
It exits the Bell Housing and may be connected to the Torque Converter but it's difficult to see.
And, if it needs replacing, when do you replace it and where do you get a new one?

Yes Sir, that is the transmission filter. The oil from the transmission goes through the filter and further insures your Nesco is supplied with clean oil. You can replace the filter with the ones that NAPA carries, they are identical. I keep a clean one always in my oil cabinet.

Many thanks Mike, BH mention the one inside the Nesco but very strange they fail to tell us about this other one.
I imagine this filters oil leaving the Torque Converter going back to the Nesco?
I'll see if there's a part number on it and get one ordered...

The black plastic filter isn't readily available in the UK, so I've ordered one of these.

Any filtering we can get for the Nesco will help greatly I am sure. I am a "stickler" on maintenance, and try to always change both the in-pan filter, tranny oil, engine oil and filter every 3-5000 miles. and I try to always change out the in-line tranny filter every 2-3 years of normal riding.

I should get this filter within the next day or so and will let you know how I get on Mike.
Unsure of the plastic filter specifications but this canister version might be an improvement/upgrade...
I'm like you and change oil & filters a little more often than required, it's the lifeblood of the bike and top of the range quality products are always used.

A bit of info for anyone with an interest:
Engine not started for 2 days, old filter was empty so no oil spilled and no mess during removal, no oil top-up needed either.
Item Details: Magnefine Raybestos 3/8" (10mm). "Replace filter after 12 months or 10,000 miles."
Simple enough to do in 10/15 minutes.
Thanks again Mike for the heads up.(y)

EDIT: Update on the filter; checked the oil after a few hundred miles and it's like new. This unit makes all the difference, the oil turned grey with microscopic metalic flecks immediately after every oil change before.

I replace that filter every 10,000 miles or at one-year intervals.
I also carry a new one in my saddlebag.
I just turned 100,000 miles on my '01 SB, which I have had since new.
