Gonna put my friends 1911 and a Rossi snub nose in to soak for a few days. Any issues using an aluminum “turkey” type pan vs a plastic pan ? Two different metals reacting? Hank

Nah. Most automatic trannys have an aluminum housing, steel bearings, brass syncros, etc.
No adverse reactions from the fluid in the transmission, so there shouldn't be any in the scenario you describe.

Hey 230,

Nope. Tranny case is aluminum. The rest of the stuff is steel. Ever take one apart? They are usually CLEAN inside.

Later, Mark

Thanks! You know what they say,” Cut twice, measure once!”, or something like that. Both the 1911 and the Rossi are pitted, lightly, and rusted in places. Didn’t want to make a bad situation worse. Hank

ATF is nearly 100% detergent. It's really one of the best cleaning agents there is . It's a pure surfactant, and lifts foreign debris from just about any surface it comes into contact with.
Perfect for cleaning grime and grunge out of a gun.
