[DML] Re: Automatic Transmission Filters or Not? That is the question.

You run without a filter at your own peril. It should be cleanable and if the bronze screen is too messed up to reuse you can always get a new piece. You should have some kind of screen so large pieces cannot get to the pump and damage it. The filter also helps to prevent foaming and aerating of the fluid and the subsequent cavitation in the pump and loss of pressure. To properly clean the filter it MUST be disassembled, you just can't get all of the dirt out of it any other way. There is a procedure in the Files section. If you still have the old filters I would be interested in buying them.
