that part is per Ford.
I'm still confused, how do you know if it's full or not?

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority, and widely promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

1. I put the same amount back in that came out....

2. the drain plug is a small pipe, if you over fill it the excess will run out the pipe...

no prob!

this was one job that I felt needed to be done, either this way , or paying some one to flush it.
but after time the Fluid does break down.
so new fluid is always a good thing.

The pa pan has plenty of clearance, The only problem I had was the the dipstick, I had to bend the tube with a bender to get it to clear.

Ford also advises to check the fluid level with the engine running and trans up to temp. Once there you just pump fluid in until it comes back out the fill hole. Also the gasket has "Reusable" stamped in it.

Personnally, I just installed a dipstick into the stock pan while I had it out and filled through it.

which dipstick did you install? does it read the proper fill level?

I was reading the Ford service manual yesterday. I wanted to know at what mileage Ford recommended changed the rear end differential fluid. Ford says, "It's a synthetic fluid that does not require changing unless the axle has been submerged in water". Umm, yeah....nice try Ford, but I would never leave the same fluid in my rear diff forever.

Some ATF info....

Automatic Transmission Fluid Temperature

Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) has a life of about
100,000 miles at 175 o F. At high temperatures, it oxidizes,
turns from red to brown and exhibits a burnt smell. In
addition to reducing the oil’s lubricating quality, high
temperature produces a varnish on internal parts
interfering with the operation of the transmission. Above
250oF., rubber seals harden, leading to pressure loss and
leaks. Also, the transmission can slip. In the worst cases,
clutches fail and costly repairs result.
ATF manufacturers suggest that for every 20oF. increase
in operating temperature above 175oF., the life of the fluid
is cut in half. Hence at 195oF., oil life will be about 50,000
miles. Above 240oF., it becomes nil.

Menace - way easier than what the OP did - search it - just drain and fill from inside the car through the shifter boot with a hose

Remove wheels, spindle nuts, two bolts on the calipers. Swing calipers up, slide off the old hub, on with the new after applying a bit of axle grease on the spindle shafts and torque to spec. Nothing to it. I even rented a spindle nut tool from autozone but didn't need it.

Since you're an amsoil guy you've probably seen their reasoning behind early differential fluid swaps: http://www.amsoil.com/articlespr/200...egearlube.aspx
