I just got finished watching all of them. There wasn't anything I didn't already know from reading here for the last year, but they're great info for anybody that's just into Powerstrokes.

I did see one error. Did you notice that the transmission fluid/filter change video tells people to use the wrong fluid? I sent them an email and asked them to check it. They say to use Mercon V in a 5R110 in an 05 Super Duty. The documentation I've seen is very clear. It all says to only use Mercon SP or risk major damage. It's even printed on the dipstick.

Maybe Scuffy or one of the other techs will see this any chime in. Is there any circumstance why you'd use Mercon V in a Torqueshift instead of SP?

I picked up the SP issue also. Didn't know the trick about checking the water pump by pulling on the fan. I"m used to Electric fans.

I picked up on the de-watering material around the fuel filter...

Ooopps! I just bought a case of Baldwin Filters the two piece kit, and it does not have that white film over the main filter. Neither does the Napa Filter set. What do you think, necessary? Will the Napa or Baldwin filters de-water, shed water anyway?

Or does anyone have a source for that film? Me thinking I got to get original Ford ones.. Powerstroke Shop has them on special now for $47..

Anyway, what do you Techies think?
