From what I read in the thesis and articles, the threads on the new filter are meant to be used once, IE you put it in, and don't take it out unless you are replacing it. The rubber neck loses it's grip after once good push in/pull out.

sounds like the rubber seal is loose/missing. check that first. maybe the seal from the old filter is still in the valve body?

ALWAYS check and see that the old filter seal is out of the valvebody before you put a new one in. When my tranny fried and I dropped the pan hoping for a quick fix (didn't know for sure if it was fried yet) I found my brand new filter sitting in the pan. I had pulled it twice before for some tweaking and just pried the seal outta the v body stuck it back on the filter and reassembled. Guess I won't be doing that on the 'new' tranny...
