Remove top fill hole bolt

Remove bottom drain hole bolt

When fluid is done draining, replace bottom drain hole bolt.

Fill with proper fluid. ATF 4 for the select track or dealer only 247 fluid for Quadra drive or track.

Replace top fill hole bolt.

Profit???

The cheapest stuff you can find. ATF 4 is ATF 4.

I must use the dealer only fluid for my Quadra Trac II, but for yours if it specifies atf 4, I would use atf+4 synthetic. Any brand should do, it is a spec to meet

Buy the 247 fluid online...way cheaper.. That is if you need it.

I ordered it off eBay for 10.00/quart. Just for shuts and giggles I asked the local dealership... They wanted almost $30/quart and quoted me $165 to service just my 247 transfer case... Differentials quoted at $185/each... Rediculous rates

Might as well get some decent ATF since you don't have to replace it very often. Plus its only 2 quarts.

ATF 4 is the spec for the fluid, not the general name of it. If it says ATF 4 on the bottle, it is exactly the same whether the bottle costs $2 or $17. Just go to Wal-Mart and pick up the cheappest bottle they have.

All atf+4 is synthetic and its the same formula. If it meets the type 7176 spec then go with it. Walmart sells it under its supertech brand and it works just fine.
