the glob on the magnetic bolt - no "chunks" of metal but was definitely gritty
It will look gritty on the magnet, but did it feel gritty twixt the fingers? Water in the tranny oil, looks like a latte' . Come from a cracked boot on the speedo cable (right side near the driveshaft boot). Replace it and always keep an eye on it. Fresh tranny oil, run it for a week or so, change it again. Annoying, but a common occurence.
