Thanks...I've since hunted around and found it's about 6.5 quarts. Most of my concern was having the wrong info on the capacity....I only had a rough guess on what I was able to recover that didn't spill.

Do you know if the cooler drains back into the transmission when the motor is off? Plan on changing the fluid tomorrow and wanted to know if I'm good with just filling to the bottom of the fill port or if I need to recheck once the cooler has 'refilled' itself

It doesn't drain back.
Besides, having too much oil in the tranny will only result in airation.
Just fill it to the bottom of the port and drive. It will be fine.

Finished with flushing the transmission fluid today. I picked up the transmission flush can from NAPA, but was unable to get the cooler lines to back off....bummer. It will have to wait.

I've been thinking of adding a transmission fluid filter to the cooler lines. Dieselsite.com has a nice kit. Dan or anyone played around with this yet for your 6 speed? Is it overkill?

My theory is is fine it's gears what can it hurt semi transmissions run gear oil and the back boxes are sncronized yes the Down side is it shifts harder while cold sometimes in the 1-4 gears you have to float shift cuz the clutch don't help lol but let her warm uP for ten minutes or so she shifts like a dream
