I picked up a filter and gasket for it. I bought one quart of Lucas and 4 quarts of tranny fluid.

How many quarts should I expect to get out of it by dropping the pan? And, should the Lucas be the last quart I add?

AND, is the factory gasket reusable? If so, should I?

Expect to be down 6ish quarts by dropping pan and filter.

The gasket is only reusable if it'* the factory metal gasket with inlaid rubber and it'* in good shape. Yes reuse if possible, it'* better than the rubber replacement gasket they give you.

I dropped the pan tonight. Made a nice mess!

It was very brown and stunk. It'* definitely burnt. I got out about 5.5 quarts. There were no shavings in the pan. Just a thin layer of sludge.

I'm letting it drip over night and will bolt the pan back up tomorrow morning. Will report results after the test drive.

BTW, the gasket is in in great shape, so I'll reuse it.
