Does anyone (prob Ken ) have an exploded exterior view of the 7.3 and its hoses/accessories. I have that ATF leak coming from the bottom of the radiator, which has stopped momentarily, and along with the radiator replacement I'm going to do ALOT of PM. New upper and lower hoses (dual alt one), new belt, water pump, 203 thermostat, billet tstat cover, coolant and tranny filters, 6.0l cooler, new hard lines in tranny circuit from Tousley, engine oil cooler rebuild kit, all the proper fluids as discussed here, and a bunch of other stuff. (Made a lot with side work this month!) I know there is more on the front that I could do while its all apart. I figure if I had some diagrams to look at I could spend some more money! I am calling the boys at Tousley tomorrow and will ask him about the remaining hard lines for the tranny circuit... Darn salt from these NE winters.
Any other suggestions?
Would it be easier to flush the tranny alone before installing and filling the new coolers/ filters? Its all new except for the trans itself.
Coolant flush procedures?
Also, my local parts guy carries Zerex antifreeze. It goes by g05 but the number is zxg051. Has anyone had any experience with this particular antifreeze? (I like to support my local hometown stores)
This is a lot of work to do and I want to make sure I don't miss anything. I know Murphy's law will have something to do with this, but!
And as usual, you guys are great.... I love lurking in here and reading about things that may or may not happen to me with my rig. I have owned it since new and it's been a great truck. So I think after 160k she deserves to have these nice things!.... At least that's what I tell myself when the bills for all this come in!
