My pleasure. Given more time, we could've dug a bit deeper.
One tip about the M/T: don't remove the drain plug before you make sure you can remove the fill plug. Ask me how I know.
Since your truck doesn't have the LSD rear (I believe), don't add any friction modifier, just regular smelly gear lube. Use whatever you use in the diffs in the transfer case as well, as I recall. Go synthetic, as we talked about. I have a gear lube pump to refill everything, but they're cheap if you have to buy one.
Ask Pat if he knows about the radiator condition, provided you don't know already. That water pump "looked" new. I didn't even think to check if it was a 3-row or just two.
Are you still getting the little "grind" downshifting into 2nd?
