What oil?

Ok once im deleted, What oil should I use? I know there was talk that you can only run some special oil but I figure You can run what ever after you dont have a DPF. Is this true and what should I run?

Well I went with the Rotela 15W40 serviced the engine and the tranny, Had my welder buddy tig weld 2 bungs in the tranny pan for me one for the temp sender, and one for a drain.

I did not change the fuel filter, is there a trick to it or just spin it off. is there a spcial tool to turn it with. I could not get it to turn with a filter wrench and did not want to crack it.
I have a lift in my shop and it looks like a ***** to get to It must be even worse on the ground.If there is a special tool please let me know.

It is a ***** to change. And the trick is trying not to get diesel all over yourself. One hint is to attach a longer hose to drain port on the filter so it can be better directed away from you and into a pan. I attack it from both underneath and thru the fender well, not easy but doable. #@&*^

Did you replace the whole thing with an air dog?
