Does anyone know, removing the PTO cover on the ZF6 if I need to drain the transmission first? I think I have a leaky PTO cover but don't want to pull that plate and have a few gallons of ATF hit me in the face LOL.

I've found the only real fix is to just pull the pan and get a new adapter. Or buck up the ponies for that fancy milled aluminum kit, but I wasn't comfortable pushing my old adapter back into the pan

Get the strictly diesel adapter. Worth every penny. My original 20 yr old dipstick adapter started to least last winter. Followed the instruction to a T with new oem kit. Leaked in about a week.

did the strictly kit and has been leak free since. PS if your bottom end sucks up that brass adapter in the pan you got bigger troubles lol.

I know it’s $$ but it’s just a really good product for a very unique set up.

So we have taken a short camping trip, and for the first bit the truck wanted to run a tad hotter, but after few miles it settled down to normal, guessing it needed a few miles since I had just done a new radiator, thermostat and added a coolant filter. And as far as the oil leak on the F 250 my mechanic will fix it, since it's under his warranty period.
