Re: changing oil ??

engine 10w-40
auto transmission Dexron III ATF
dana 300 transfer 80w-90 gear oil
stock axles 80w-90 gear oil

Volumes and types are all in either the Haynes or Chilton manual you should have along with where the drain and fill plugs are.

Re: changing oil ??

Edit: WILL, you beat me to it.

Engine: 10W-30 or 10W-40 depending on your climate. 5 Qts.
Auto Tranny: Most are serviced by regular ATF. 11? Qts. (I'm guessing here.) Dexron/Mercon compatible should work fine.
Dana 300: 80W-90 gear oil. I use Mobile 1 synthetic that's rated 75W-90. Fill until it dribbles out the fill hole.
Axles: Same as Dana 300.
Cooling: 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water. Not sure of the exact amount but generally you fill it to 2-3" below the opening.

Hope this helps some.

Re: changing oil ??

Actually 50/50 mix doesn't cut it anymore. For some reason a lot of anti-freeze companys don't make it as strong as they used to. I always used to mix it 50/50 untill one -30 C day the anti-freeze in my shop truck gelled up and it overheated. And sure enough I went and read the mixing instructions on the bottle and it said 60/40. Ever since then I fill an ice cream pail 1/3 full of anti-freeze and (using an ant-freeze tester) keep adding water untill its good for
-45 C.

Re: changing oil ??

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I belive you are supposed to use ATF fluid in the Dana 300 xfer case.

Re: changing oil ??

You're corrected. That's a good way to blow a case.

Although, I have heard of people using ATF instead of motor oil. Not me!

A Dana 300 uses 80W-90 gear lube.
