Being that the vehicle is level, you should keep filling till it starts oozing out of the fill hole or close enough that you can feel the level with your finger in the hole.Nick: The SSR is on the ground sitting flat on the garage floor. The new cover (Torsen) requires about 1/2 liter more than stock, however, shouldn't I be able to feel the level through the fill hole? Perplexed? Some one should know. It would be reasonable to think. There are folks who have had previous experience here, right? Thanks, Racesport.
Actually when built on the assembly line the frame came past the [rear fill] up-side down on the build's we made. Fill until it ran out. The the inspector checked and put the fill plug back in.Being that the vehicle is level, you should keep filling till it starts oozing out of the fill hole or close enough that you can feel the level with your finger in the hole.
Worked on new Chevys many years ago, We prepped them for delivery to customers. On our check list was ensuring an adequate fill of the rear end. You unscrewed the fill cap and most often, it started oozing out when you removed the cap. If not, and you could easily feel that the level was close............You were good to go.:wink2:
:|Are you using the original fill port as the indicator. On the aluminum covers there is usually a fill port, but this is not the one I use as the fill indicator port. I always used the original port as to not overfill the differential.
As I remember, the OEM fill level port is on the passenger side of the differential nose case, just above the main rib that goes fore and aft.....Blessings: Auggie Doggie; I will crawl under & find the fill level hole in the axel housing at first light. Thank you very much. Who knew? Simple (double entendre). Knowledge is priceless. Racesport
