Got a bunch of stuff done on the truck last night.
I was going to rebuild the steering coupler since it was getting bad and I had over 45* movement in the steering wheel before it would affect the tires, but I was out looking at the parts truck and it had a steering shaft with a large U-joint so decided to clean it up and use that one instead. I also installed the new drag link.
Also since it's been 5 years and over 100K km's I wanted to change my tranny fluid and filter. I run one of those string filters that sit inside a housing on the RH PTO location....works very well.
A comment by Oliver stuck in my head that he runs the same fluid in the NV4500 and NP205...which makes some sense to me.
So decide to also drain my transfer case and move the older Castrol Syntorque from the tranny into the TC.
