    Good deal. I found mine took about a quart more after cool off. My transmission was open for about a week while I waited on parts so a ton more drained out. (I got about 9 quarts out and I think it holds 11ish). I put back in 8ish and then topped off at just under 9.

    And as for getting that sleeve in, what finally did the trick was cutting a piece of 2x2 into a 1” tall square that fit ontop of the sleeve and putting a pry bar on the center of that and using the frame rail as a fulcrum. That way you can put some force on it without the fear of cracking or messing up the edges of the sleeve. Once I did that, the white tab clipped right in with minimal force
