It's an old trick to pass smog if your cat is getting plugged up or isn't working as efficiently as it used to. I've heard of denatured alcohol as well, but am fortunate that they don't do emissions...

I'm lazy and use an impact gun, but some spots there just isn't enough room to get it in there. My 4 banger had just enough room if I took the radiator out and used a shallow 27mm socket.

If it's a manual transmission one thing you can do is put it in 5th and have someone stand on the brakes. That will keep the engine from turning so you can break the crank bolt loose.

Yep, you should. One way to check is to jack up the back of the truck and spin one of the wheels. If you have an open diff the wheel on the other side will spin in the opposite direction.

Well, to be fair if you have a limited slip rear end you'll need to make sure whichever fluid you are using has the correct additives, but that doesn't apply to an HF35. Also, a lot of the gear oil...

Any old 75w-90 or 80w-90 gear oil will work just fine. No need to buy the expensive stuff. GL-5 is fine since there aren't any soft metal parts in there to worry about.

Just run the wires to a simple on/off switch on the dash somewhere. That's all the overdrive button does.

Back should be hotter than the front if it's working correctly. The cat on these just bolts in, and is easy enough to remove. You could always try temporarily removing it and driving around. It'll be...
