okay so finalyl got my truck out in the mud, sunk myself to where water got in and i think i got water in my oil or something because it was super black when i checked it.

drained the oil, picking up more tomorrow.. motor has been in for about 400 miles if that.

trans has 200 mlies and it seems pretty red, but is there a way to check for any water? how can i prevent it in the future, my vent tube is high enough, its just im still kind of shakey about it.

also since i've gone wheeling my oil rpessure has been lwoer, but im not leaking more then usual, at about 3k rpm i'd be at 60psi, now i barely go over 30psi..any ideas? what should i be runnning?

okay changed the oil...put 6 quarts in bc at 5 it was a little low, idk it usually took 5..anyways

it idles at about 20psi, but when i hit the gas i'm at 40psi and at about 2500 rpm i'm at 60psi. does that sound about right?

it was pitch black when i took it out of the pit..not really sure, maybe i should run full syntec not the half? i mean it is a decent powered motor under stress with 37"s..my buddy is coming over who helped me build it and check it out..i may just change the seal and throw some 5w-30 full syntec in that i have laying around.
