Nope. I didn't have one. The transmission kept getting hung up on different things on the way out.
That makes sense I had to adjust it full lock to full lock. The last time I used it I was over cranking it by hand, welded a bolt to one end, put an impact on it and ended up stripping the worm gear. I don’t really feel like spending the money on another one currently and will probably join the separate in and out club for the time being.Nope. I didn't have one.

I've seen several people say that there's not enough material to do this. You're talking about 7/16" studs versus 1/2" studs.
I’m going to second oil samples. They’re cheap and interesting in my opinion. I’ve done several with Blackstone and they have always had great service. I was able to watch my results improve after I took out my bad water pump and installed a new one. I also watched the data change after I ran a Jersey to Idaho trip in my 6.9 pulling 7K. Fun stuff!Question:
Would doing oil samples be worth the time/money to tell me how worn out the swap-in 7.3 is? Not worth it? Worth it?
Thanks & Happy Tinkering!
My buddy forgot it wasn't a powersmoke.Sensors - sounds strange unless you know they are messed up. Not sure whose telling you that. There’s barely any sensors on this engine.
Why not do the front and rear main seals? The oil pan is east to get to..I changed all the gaskets on the exterior of the motor. It was so easy with the motor hanging from a chain. Now the motor is in and I have to reseal my water pump!
