Yeah I know about those but being in the north east they are far from drying out. I'll probably replace them anyway just for piece of mind. I've never lost any fluid though.
Thanks, but I've already come this far so I might as well rebuild it, but in the event it doesn't work out I'll look into that. I'm reading a lot that people put gear fluid in the tranny and that causes it to be difficult to shift and noisy, could that have been your problem with the other one?
nope, ran mobil1 synthetic atf, before the failure, now run redline synthetic atf after to try to make it last longer. lots of hard towing of my boats (for this truck) and wheeling makes the transmission get really hot, baking the fluid, that and 185 thousand miles on the original didnt help either
