Of course metal flakes should always give one cause for concern. What your next action is,iportant. Are these from normal wear? Hours on the oil since last changed? Could it be something that will cause severe damage? Questions that cannot be answered sometimes, just by changing the oil. Is it time to dig deeper? Only you can make that decision. I know that one 806 that I worked on once, that had larger metal flakes in the Hy-Tran. These had come from the sprag clutch on the T/A. The tractor had been run too long, and they scored everything. Farmer had me put it back together, and sold it quick. If you watch, and do proper maintanence, and it sounds like you are, then hopefully something like this can be avoided.
Oil sample is the way to go, to find out where that metal is coming from. Contact your Cenex petrolium dealer/rep, and he can get you a sample bottle to send in. $17.00 test......Well worth the money.
