Default Moving Forward

FINALLY got the transmission in this weekend. Installed the trans tunnel,..and then my 9 yr old daughter help me put the interior back together. Forgot to get a pic after we finished. Not sure how many quarts of fluid go in this 5 speed. I put 5 quarts of the juice in the picture. Everything I researched said ATF for the 5 speed and gear oil for the older 4 speed. Either way, it's in. I'll get the transfer case and driveshafts in this week.

You overfilled it. The M5OD takes 7.6 pints, which is just under 4 quarts.

Thanks. I'll drain it down and correct it.

Actually I don't know how you got 5 quarts in - if you pull the fill plug I bet a bunch comes out. Let it come out until it stops, then suck a bit more out till the oil level is about 1/2 inch below the fill plug. This is assuming the tranny is sitting level.

Transfer case also takes ATF - 1345 takes 6.3 pints, 1356 takes 4 pints.

The head on the fill plug is mangled up real bad. I filled it through the shifter opening. I'll just drain it down and start over.Thanks for the info GLC. I'll also check the tag on the transfer case and make sure it's got the correct amount.

I think you need to replace that fill plug while you can still easily get at it.

Maybe I can weld a nut to it and it'll be strong enough to get it out.

Can you believe I was off from work for 11 straight days, and only had about a half of a day to mess around with the truck. Busy vacation, and we didn't even leave our area. I did get the transfer case installed and a shift lever repair kit installed. Need to replace the boot on the shift lever, but having a hard time getting the outer sleeve to free up from the lower section. I'll post some pictures this week of the trouble. But I do have some good news. I picked up a 85 F250 4x4, 460, 4 speed manual, single cab, long bed for trade on a little electrical side work. I have known the original owner for about 17 years, so I feel I made out pretty good. The truck was his everyday driver but has been sitting for about 8 months. Took the Holley carb off and have to order a rebuild kit for it. If this thing will start up and run with minimal effort, (like I've been told it will) think I'm gonna change directions on the 91. The body on the 91 is in MUCH better condition then the 85. Rust is relentless!! I'd much rather have the 250 suspension and axles,....along with the bigger motor. Gonna make a body swap. I know the wiring will be something I have to work through,....but I know my way around a multimeter. Stay tuned.

Ordered all the cab mount bushings and a bed mount kit yesterday from LMC. Was gonna order new cab mount bolts also, but LMC wants $10 apiece. That's madness. I'll take one out of the truck and measure it up and see if I can do better then that. Carb rebuild kit is supposed to be here next Monday. I ordered it Monday this week. I guess the delivery guy is walking from Miami. Not gonna have any time this weekend to mess with it though. Too much side work right now.
