How much gear oil do you put in the front 10bolt? and can you overfill it?
There is a fill hole on the front diff cover. It should be about 1/2 or 2/3 of the way up. Pull the plug, and fill with oil on flat ground until oil starts to run out the hole. Once oil runs out the hole put the plug back in. You could overfill it if you did it with the trucks assend on a downward slope. Fill it on flat ground till oil comes out. Its that simple.
Just over 2 quarts. You cant really overfill it because it will come out of the fill plug. You pull the plug out, fill it until it starts to come out of the hole, then put the plug back in.
Ok thanx I was thinking if more was better i could hold the bottel up close to it and squeez it then stick the plug in fast but if thats a bad idea then im not gonna do that.
