    Just got done with replacing the seal between the SM465 and NP205. Had a nice dry day today with warm temps and got it done (started at 8pm and ended at 12am).

    Refilled both the tranny and t-case with fresh Mercon-Dextron III and everything did good on the test drive except now the truck is not charging the battery /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Need sleep so have to put that off till tomorrow...

    1979 K10 that I was replacing the seal between the SM465 &amp; NP205. Working outside at night kinda left me waiting on the rain a lot. Took a couple weeks from the time I started working on it!

    I know a Lubrication engineer who works for a large equipment company that recommended using ATF in the SM465/NP205. It is a cheaper way of getting most of the benifits of Synthetic oil. Actually exceeds the requirements according to him.

    And he has been running his truck this way for a long time with no problems. So far so good in mine. Drove 100 miles to get to work today in the truck.
