    Fluid Capacity\'s

    Hey all.

    I need to know the capacity of an NP208, and a corp 10-bolt rear. I changed them this weekend, but they're continuously leaking, so I want to know how down I am and was when I changed them (ran out of ATF @ 3 1/2 quarts when refilling the Tcase).

    Thanks yall!!!
    The diff I'm just curious about, cause I was in a rush and most of my gear oil ended up on my driveway while refilling...

    The rear 10-bolt should take about 2.5 bottles of 80W-90 gear oil. I can't remember if those bottles are quarts or not, but it's 2.5 of those.

    I filled my front and rear 10 bolts up just a few weeks ago...2 bottles of mobil 1 in each...filled them to the drain holes. I guess it would vary a little depending on your gears, locker or whatever else ya have in there. Its not rocket science tho, fill them until the fluid is JUST below the fill-hole-plug and you're all good.

    I figure, my fluid capacity is is judged by how much is leaking out.
    Alot leaking? Full!
    None Leaking? Empty!
    Then fill accordingly
