    I've looked and can't find it anywhere. I know that your supposd to fill it till it comes out the fill hole, but mine is clocked and that just doesn't work anymore.

    Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    As many as it takes for it to start coming out of the fill hole. similar to the diffs.

    Did you read my original post? /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif My T-case is clocked up so now my fill hole is ALOT higher than it was before. So if I were to frill it to the fill hole I would probably blow some seals because of so much fluid. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Actually, if i am thinking right, even if you clocked it up, you are actually filling it with less fluid now, the drain hole is towards the bottom, fill towards the top. Or am i mising something else here, i could have swore they were almost identical to the 241 case.

    The FILL hole is on top, you are correct. When the t-case is in the normal postion, and i fill it up to the fill hole then i would be filling the t-case to about half. Now that I have it clocked up. the fill hole is higher and if I fill it to the fill hole then I would be filling the t-case about 3/4 of the way. Which would be too much.

    BTW I am guessing on the 1/2 and 3/4. just useing those as easy reference. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    OK i think i understand what you are saying now, my bad, if i remember correctly, i believe i had to put in about 4 qts to fill mine, maybe 5, the other thing is i do not believe you will blow ant seals out due to the vent tube on the top of the t-case, unless you have done something elst with that as well, pressures won't build up. Hell when i got mine back together, i didn't get around ti installing the hose back on right away untill i notice it was blowing fluid out of it and all over the place.

    I would probably do about 4 qts.

    I'm living dangerously and filled mine up till it ran out on my 241. So far, so good. It took 5 qts to fill it up this time. I've been running it for a few weeks now and "knock on wood" NO problems.

    I was hoping you'd chime in seeing as your the only one running this set up right now. Well i guess i'll dothat too. I don't do a lot of highway miles on it anymore so I shouldn't have problems either.

    BTW, do you have any more progress pics on that crossmember?

    Mine see's about 50-60 highway miles a day running out at ~70mph. Seems to be doing alright.

    On the crossmember, none yet. Doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day with a 3 month old baby at the house. I've got all day saturday blocked off to do some work though /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'd pull late nights EVERY night, except for one little problem. My wife and son sleep n the other side of the shop wall /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif They can hear me when I open a can of Pepsi. I ahve to go to bed when they do... Just another reason I'm looking for another house...

    I'll post more pics as I get stuff done. Got a new shock project coming up that might be kinda interesting...
