Concerning lubricating the chassis's zerk fittings (thank you Iggy for the 'service points' images), what type of grease should I use? I noticed the reference to XG-1-C, can I use this on all my chassis's zerk fittings?

Don't try to reinvent the wheel. Ford gives you the part numbers to all the service parts and fluids. It is so easy to procure these parts from local sources. Walmart has the Motorcraft semi synthetic 5w-20w oil and FL820S filter. Walmart also has a Penzoil brand transfer pump for $7.98 that has extra long plastic hoses for reaching the ever so restricted area oil fill tube. ALL OIL FILTERS ARE NOT THE SAME. Flow check valves, microns, one and two stages, temperature check valves are all part of todays oil filter designs. The worst thing you can do to an engine is install a generic oil filter. Before a manufacturer warranties a motorhome engine you can bet for sure they will want to know what oil filter is on it and they will do an oil analysis. I can never understand why some owners experiment in this area when the manufacturer is telling us exactly how, when, and what to do and use to properly service their product.
Additionally I self service my vehicles so I can look over the unit for leaks and possible defects. I have been a diesel mechanic for 40 years.

Completed my oil change today using the Penzoil pump from walmart. The pump made it simple, the filter was easy to get to, and my oil pan fit nicely to catch the oil. Much easier than my Acura and Honda. Funny thing is, the tiny size of the filter that I removed ("Service Champ") that CP put on for my last oil change made me have to double check the FL-820 part number of the Motocraft filter I picked up.

Yes they are small. I have done a few oil changes on mine and have removed the drain plug and installed a Fomoto valve. I also use a 3ft section of tube to drain it into a bucket.
Here is the link to the website for the quick valve assembly.
http://www.qwikvalve.com/fumoto-f106n-valve.html

Watch the video explains it clearly what it does.


Here is a picture of the valve I installed in my V10. Much cleaner and easier next oil change
