    I'm getting ready to change out the fluid on my new to me snoway. Has anyone gone through the complete drain and cleaning of the pickup screen that is outlined in the owners manual? If so, does anyone have any suggestions that makes the process quicker, or some detail that is not outlined in the instructions? Looking back at old threads it seems that a synthetic ATF would be fine for replacement fluids. What brands do everyone recommend? Oh, one more thing, about how much fluid does the pump hold? I've got down pressure on mine. thanks guys, Nick.

    pepole were talking about using Amsoil synthetic www.amsoil.com a while back.
    If you search Amsoil it may come back up.
