Dex... (per your owners manual).

Most of them are backward compatible to whatever Dex was around at the time of our cars.

Later,
Be careful with that. He could quite easily call in a tow truck and have your car towed from his property...
My thought was that I would be in the car waiting for him to open the garage door, I'd get my stuff out of the garage then let him go while I load my stuff. nice & easy.

And yes Mr. Bill. In no way, shape or form would Bob & I resemble the AZ hitmen.. That'* just silly.. :P

Merc V.... The latest and greatest. Goes in the new Ford tranny'*

My understanding is that it also contains better friction modifiers than Merc III. However I can't find anything on Merc III, so I just quoted some easily accessed info on Merc and Merc V. No numbers, but they like to talk it up?

Merc V

*edit* I added some links above. Relevant or not, I posted em. I also have this to add. Maybe he should get the Redline Racing ATF seen here.

*edit* I suppose the high temp stuff might be okay...

Bob, I'll give you a call when I get out of work.
I hope to be finished by 1:00PM and I need to head over to the Chevy dealer for some seals for an input shaft, I have a trans that I'm working on that I can't install the input shaft because ZZP sent it without seals.
Yes, of course the last option would be to re-use the originals.
I need some gaskets and I never got the rear oil seal so I'll get that while I'm there.
Bob, if you want to head over to Chapmen on your way I'll call in the order and my mother can pick it up. Let me know.

Definitely call me when you are getting out of work. I can swing by Chapmen and pick up whatever parts you have waiting for you.
