    I believe the dremel tools have an adapter that make extends and is flexible, smaller too, to hold in your hand. Yeah the brushes suck bawls cuz they wear out quick. I was able to clear away the old gaskets material w/o removing the oil pans paint but I had to use multiple brushes.

    Is it a bad idea to break it apart and clean it and paint. Might make the rebuild easier?

    I got it as close I could with the drill, will finish up with the dremel to get it better. As far as im concerned it doesnt need to be perfect since I will be painting them.

    upload_2017-12-4_12-20-42.jpg Not today, over the Thanksgiving weekend I replaced the heater core, i hope to God i never have to do that again. Local dealer wanted $492.00 for just the heater core, i got the heater core, valve and hoses for just under $250 and saved probably $850 to $1000 on labor.

    Does anyone know if the front differential and transfer case drain & fill plugs have crush gaskets I need to replace? Same for the transmission drain plug.

    Everything you mentioned should need new gaskets/washers. Here's what I order for mine when I need to do the drain and fill maintenance (2002 V6 4WD):

    12157-10010 - 2 for rear diff drain/fill, 1 for front diff fill

    90430-24003 - 1 for front diff drain

    90430-A0003 - 2 for transfer case drain/fill

    35178-30010 - Auto trans drain plug

    No problem. Just make sure you get the gaskets for your application (I have no clue if they are the same part numbers or not).

    I used Amsoil's Severe Gear 75w-90 for the f/r diffs and the transfer case. Then Amsoil's ATF for the transmission.

    Replacing all the seals on my front diff. Do I need to replace the companion flange oil seal or am I fine without doing so?

    So far I'm replacing the oil seals on the FR axle tube and the FL axle input.

    No. All that is is basically a dirt shield to keep big stuff away from the pinion seal.
