Anyone know why Ford is now saying to use Mercon LV instead of Mercon V for the transmission and T-case? I just checked Motorcraft's site and it says DON'T use LV where Mercon V is recommended and it is not for use in t-cases. I have the manual trans, too.
I think it's another cheap azz Ford bean counter move so they can eliminate another stock item. I know you shouldn't us V in a T-case, not sure how the LV does. Guess it's ok in the automatics. I use the XL-12 or Valvoline Transfer case fluid, lot of guys use Penzoil syncromesh in the ZF-6

Oh yeah, been hauling my 450 gallon water tank back and forth to the fire station for water. Cow's spring dried up a month ago and ours died about a week ago.

DaveP. I'm leaving on another trip Monday 0-dark-thirty to Reno and take the car I picked up in So Carolina this summer to its first show in Lake Tahoe next Thursday. I worked on the car most of the day cleaning the engine bay and undercarriage. I made a lot of progress. Got out there this evening and changed the oil in the Super Duty. I was overdue for a change on my already extended change interval, I didn't want to go another 1,500 miles. I'll wash the truck in the morning, get the trailer out, and stage the rig tomorrow afternoon. Busy, busy.

forthehalibut Yesterday, I put on some pedal covers. The clutch and brake fit, but the fuel pad is too small, so I had to write the seller and see what he can do for me.

Today, I just put around $95 into the tank to get me through the weekend. Avg MPG was 16.25 on the last tank.

As for waht I did to my truck today--took it to the car wash, vacuumed it, then put some tire shine stuff on the new tires. Looks nice!

That was a few years ago but we loved it. Our golden retriever loved playing with her ball in the lake at the campground. Really hope to make it out there again someday.
