Thanks for the video. You are risking your life under the truck which is just on 2 jack stands.
We did have a tire underneath the truck too in that video as a backup, but you do bring up a valid point. The likelihood of a 6 ton jack failing is probably slimmer than slim, but having a backup is a good idea. Usually where people get into trouble is relying solely on a hydraulic jack, mainly the small one that comes with the truck or car for emergency vehicle repairs. Maybe keeping the hydraulic jack in place on a cross member or a second pair of stands would be good, but I probably have a much better chance being struck by lightning than experiencing a failure of a 6 ton jack stand.

You know, I didn't think about other people wanting to post their DIY videos on this thread, but why not. If you got something you want to share, go for it.

It's holding up well. I bought a cheapo small grease gun and loaded some of that Ford grease into it so I could use the zerk fitting application. I sometimes feel a small thump but nothing like I was experiencing before like somebody rear-ended me. I think I'll probably have to take it apart again at some point because I have doubts that just greasing the zerk fitting is sufficient to get the grease to the upper part of the splines. With the rear wheels off the ground and the truck resting on jack stands either on the rear axle or frame, I pump the sleeve yoke with grease until I see a slight movement in the driveshaft. When I'm done and the vehicle is on all 4 wheels, I remove the zerk fitting and jump up and down on the rear bumper like an idiot to expel extra grease. I know people say you should only do a few pumps of grease in there but I know from my own experience that's not going to be sufficient to lubricate the splines. I think people who keep pumping until the driveshaft can't even extend anymore are the ones that are doing it wrong. I think the way I'm doing it is fine and not a situation where I have too much grease in there.

I would only use OEM stuff, as I did. You make your own gasket from high-temp FIPG (pink in color) available at the dealer. It's not hard.

Tranny Pan Gasket

Drive Belt Replacement

How do you imbed a YT Video?

I used a Felpro gasket from Oreilies that was kinda cardboard/cork like. It is somewhat rigid and makes for an easy install. The FIPG might be more durable, but it looked like a pain in the ass to me. As do the floppy gaskets that many use spray adhesive to help keep it in place while re-installing.

No leaks or issues from my Felpro.

You can embed by clicking on "share" then "embed" and then copy the link and paste it into your post. Here, I'll do it for you.

Hey Dudes, I installed a B&M 70264 transmission cooler in-series with the stock radiator cooler this past Saturday. I also installed a new OEM radiator and thermostat in the process. Since I was solo on this job, sometimes the lighting and camera angles aren't perfect, but I think the video does a pretty good job of showing how to go about doing this modification/preventative maintenance.

The video is long, mostly because I have a little bit of diarrhea of the mouth at times, but I believe you'll find what I have to say fairly informative if you can stomach listening to me that long. But, if you get bored of listening to me, you can always fast forward.

Here's the video and enjoy the show.
