6 speed manual fluid

Howdy all.
Want to change the fluid in my new to me truck. It is a 03 F350 7.3 6spd manual 4x4 dually.

What fluid do you recomend for it and should I use any additives. Also whats the capacity?
Any recomendation on the transfer case would be great also.

Thanks

It takes regular ATF I think Mercon V. I put Royal Purple ATF in my former 00 and it seemed to shift smoother, Gear changing seemed to slide into place better.

You should use Mercon V for both the tranny and transfer case. Not sure of the capacity of the manual tranny because I have a atuo, but my transfer case takes about 2 quarts.

I use AMSOIL products for all my lube needs. I think they really make a difference, but I am a little biased too. I am a dealer. Because of their extended drain capabilities you don't have to worry about changing fluids so often either. If you want a little more info, PM me I would be glad to shoot you some product info.

If I remember correctly there is a ton more fluid in the ZF6 vs the ZF5. Something like 12-16 quarts, it cost me a good penny when I put the royal purple in my old truck.
