Ok - to answer my own message - it seems the word in the archives is
that shops have special equipment that does the fluid flush - didn't see
anyone mention "yeah - just disconnect the cooler lines and let it pump
itself dry!" So I'm going to move that idea over to the "stuff I don't
want to do to my truck" folder.
