Pertaining to Disco Mike's Major Service sticky thread:

1. The K&N 3001 and Mobil 1-301 oil filters seem to be no longer available at major auto parts stores. Any other suggestions?

2. Why are six (6) quarts of transmission fluid needed? Does it use *that* much fluid?

3. Why are seven (7) quarts of gear oil called for?

4. Why are four (4) quarts of power steering fluid needed?

5. There are two gas additives recommended (BG 44K and Seafoam). Are they to be use simultaneously with a tank of gas, separately or are they just two independent options?

Thanks.

>>>>> Mann-Filter W 950/4

>>>>> Yes

3. Why are seven (7) quarts of gear oil called for?

>>>>> 2 for the front diff, 2 for the rear, 2 for the transfer case. You'll need extra for the mess you make. Get a good hand pump!

4. Why are four (4) quarts of power steering fluid needed?

>>>>> It probably take that much.

5. There are two gas additives recommended (BG 44K and Seafoam). Are they to be use simultaneously with a tank of gas, separately or are they just two independent options?

No, not at the same time. Put a full can of seafoam in a half tank of gas... Or just follow the instructions.

There's nothing wrong with those filters other than being about 100% or more overpriced.
The Wix 51515 (NAPA Gold 1515) for about $5 and the Baldwin B2 for a bit more are both very good filters. The Wix can probably be had a little cheaper at places that specialize in heavy trucks since people who depend on their rigs for a living use Wix and Baldwin.

Good stuff Tom. Any info on the Mann filters, should I switch to Wix?
