Even better is that to make it all lie on the same line (Symetrical AWD), some of the parts pass through other parts.
Drain a little bit? 5min. Drain more than 75% of the oil in there.... maybe 8 hours?
Yeah, I drove mine until hot, popped out the dipstick, the popped the drain plug and waited about 30min. I was about to put back about about 3qt, but it turned out I was overfull, so I drained probably 0.25-0.50qt back out.
That's what I had in mind I need a floor jack again... My craftsman broke when I took the tranny off my honda for a clutch job., The tranny slid down the jack and the edge of the bellhousing snagged the bleeder screw leaving the threads in the bore. I wouldn't get a new Craftsman aluminum floor jack if it were a dollar.
I have access to a lift we put it up poped the plug on the rear diff and on the tranny then swaped out my broken splash panel. After that we went in to the house had a few beers came out and the tranny was done dripping...

actualy at my brother in laws house 2 mins down the road from me. Hes just built a 1 stall high ceiling addition on his garage with a lift in it and heat so we can work all winter long. Its really nice.
Update: Pep Boys had BOXES of the castrol hypoyC 80w90 for $4.99/qt and BOXES of the Pennzoil Synchromesh for $7.99/qt. The 75w90 castrol stuff has been discontinued so I can't find it anywhere. I'm going to a speed shop tomorrow to try to get the 75w90GL-5 red line stuff and the lightweight shockproof. Any reason why it says that the lightweight shockproof is NOT recommended for trannies with synchros?
