venders about the magnetic drain plugs to see if they have anything for my
two vw's. They can get me the tranny drain plugs but I would have to buy 15
from them at $30 a piece. Now I don't really want that much inventory but if
other people would like the other 12 (my bother would want one) for there
manual transmissions I would love to sell at cost plus the shipping to who
ever wants one. I would need a count of people first before I would get
them. If I don't get the required amount I just won't get one. I thought
that since there isn't really any filtering it never hurts to get the extra
metal out of the oil. It is suppose to be one of the strongest magnets made
and we use them on all of our cat equipment at the mine. Just let me know.

I understand there is already a magnet in the 020 trannys, near the pinion
gear somewhere.

I have only ever dismantled one, and it was for the starter mount, and I
junked the rest, so I did not confirm its existence.
