Re: Rear End Gear oil
I would take out the fill plug first before you take off the cover. That way, if you cant get the plug out, your not stuck with a rearend that you cant get any fluid into.
Those fill plugs can be a pain to get out. Buy a 3/8 square key that you can put onto a socket or breaker bar. Dont use a socket extension.
I changed the diff fluid on my old 91 about a year ago. I took the cover off first and then tried to get the plug out. I rounded off 2 socket extensions with a breaker bar and still couldnt get it off. I ended up taking the little filter off the breather hose and put 2 quarts of fluid in that way. I just hoped that I put in the correct amount of fluid in.
Anyway, good luck.
