Would you fill it until it starts running back out of the fill plug like other differentials?Originally posted by sixchows
I'm not really sure,but I do know they hide the plugs pretty well. The manual shows the fill plug behind the l/r wheel which must be removed for access. But it doesn't state capacity or location of the drain plug. If you look under the axle at the housing on the left side there is another pipe plug for draining it's a little smaller than the fill plug from what I remember. It takes the same 30w oil as the engine so I always some around but don't remember how much it takes.
WOW! Now you got me wondering about mine. First chance I get, I'm putting it upon blocks and checking the fluid level.Originally posted by tjw in kans
when i received mine last year, i had the wheels off imediately to up grade to ag tires, i ran a wire down the fill hole approx 4 inches and f0ound nothing on the wire. if i remember right, it took close to two quarts to fill, i am going to do a drain and refill this spring. dont know if it was never filled before delivery, but assume not. wondering about synthetic 4x4 fluid for a refill. 30 wheight oil just doesnt soud right but may be ok.
