    anyone have an easy way or trick to fill a 208. I have tried a syphon pump, but I usually end up with a giant mess that takes longer to clean up than it does to fill the T-case? :mad: So let me hear your suggestions.

    Thanks,
    Ray

    I have an on/off valve that threads onto gear oil containers and also has an adapter to screw onto tranny fluid/oil containers . I use it with the hose for rearends gravity fed , and without the hose for transfercase . I just stick the nozzle into the fill hole and squeeze the bottle . Autozone for like 3.99 :)

    I have also used the nozzle caps off of old gear oil bottles in quart size , and the nozzle caps off Lucas additives , they thread onto the tranny fluid bottles too :k5: :k5:

    Same here. The pump works ok, but the little screw on hose with the on off valve makes it alot easier.

    I use the tops off gear oil. I always save those cause they are so useful. A piece of tube off the end of that top will make it even easier. a 5 gallon drum with a pumper top on its the easiest way ;) just have to go slow when you think are getting close.

    i did use one of those extentions with the on/off valve, but the last time i couldn't find it so i used a gear oil top. both work great.

    1 1/4 or 1 1/8 I believe. Either way it shouldn't be too hard. the case is aluminum so nothing should be insanely torqued, remember not to torque it to heck when you put it back in.

    It is insanely torqued from the last guy who owned it, Ive tried everythin and with it bein a shallow plug everythin slips off, Ive had many busted knuckles with this one and would rather not use an impact cuz for fear of cracking the housing. I might try a lil heat.
