    I'm pretty sure that all you neeed to make sure of is to keep the bottom half of the idler gear imersed in gear oil to carry the oil up to the main drive gears.

    You can use pipe fittings in the plug hole to run a tube up higher when rotating the t-case to kaeep the oil level where it covers the bottom half of the idler gear.

    Damn that things bigger than mine and I thought mine was huge. I think its a 3/4 inch steel plumbing pipe you know the ones with threadon them use a 2" piece then a 90 degree elbow about a 4" piece a coupler and put your plug in the long end you can rotate the plug where it needs to go to keep te idler shaft wet. here was a write up on one of my magaznes can remember wich one but it was on a ford and they did the pipe thing.
