So is this pan installed already? Waiting for more pictures and a write up or something. I wonder if a pan like that would be good for that @JimmyN character. He could take the pan off and clean it out every oil change as he lets the transmission drain for a week or two.

Uh, oh, sounds like I screwed up. I have let the trans drain for over a month already.
I better hurry up and install my new 8-gallon pan. After it is properly sterilized, of course.

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

I wonder if Brockman will drain the pan hot or cold? What would you suggest?

He doesn't have much choice. It almost always hot where he lives.

No.......since Iím in varying parts of these good olí United States.....it can be hot or cold.

However......White Lightning gets only occasional cooling off breaks.

As with ALL of my fluid changes.....it will be drained at operating temperature, at a minimum. Scalding hot is best....IMO.

And @BrianF .....Iím at 102,400 miles. The next filter change comes at 120,000 miles, which wonít be terribly long the way I accumulate miles.

Iíll maybe start another thread when I do the installation.

PML has guaranteed me a *FREE* t-shirt if I submit pictures and do a small write-up for their website!

120,000?? Well this thread just got boring. I thought anything south of the 49th parallel was always warm out. Whatever, I'm out.

It didn't pan out?

Clearly Jimmy N is the cause of this bullying and cause for concern. I am merely inquiring into this fancy pan you speak of.

You do realize that it's hard for Mr. Brockmania to hit his driveway right as the odo hits 120K, right?
Plus, I suspect that he's afraid to get schmutz on its shiny surface during the install.

Slathering on tire goop, on the other hand, can be done at any mileage. Yes, his hands get slimy, too, but he can wipe those off on the back of his pants...and the evidence is eliminated during the next visit to the detailer when they clean the seat.
Can't really ask the detailers to cleanse his tranny pan, can you?
