Dex-cool is bad for a 7.3 I believe. I think it’s only good for Chevy. Might want to look into it.

Line pressure is increased to firm up the shift points. Higher line pressure helps a trans last longer.

Wouldn't you only need the switch wiring to go through the firewall?

Had horrible whining when turning steering wheel and applying the brakes. Thanks to some YouTube vids did the power steering flush with Mobil 1 ATF Synthetic. Took care of the issue.

Correct--but I can't seem to find any space I can fit it through.

Live in Colorado, wanna Immigrate to Alaska or Wyoming/Idaho border area.

The break pedal should have some space where it goes through. Maybe just drill a hole with a small grommet would be easiest? Maybe add some silicone if you're worried about it being completely sealed.

A: If it is an automatic, there is a big plastic grommet in the hole for the clutch cyl. Easy-peasy to poke through.

B: How about the "customer access" wires? There are 4 of them, each a different color. In the engine compartment near the M/Cyl. And the other ends are under the dash to the right of the steering column.

Use the edge to turn it on and off. All relays are wired the same. You just have to look at the diagram on the side or bottom. It should look like this.
On the 4wheel parts relay you just have to cut off the switch and wire in the eas connector.

Or you just follow the eas wires to inside the cab.

Went for a little ride in mine.
730 miles from NW Arltlanta to East Texas. I took it easy, I was in no rush, and set the cruise at 68mph. I got 19.1mpg hand calculated. The old truck ran great.

This was leg one of Christmas Vacation. At my mom's for Christmas, then on to Milwaukee to visit more family then back home for New Years
