I did the oil and rear drive today and the rear drive only took about 4 Oz. of 80W is that all it takes after a drain ?
If it is will change it with every oil change.

It should take 230 mL, which is just about 8 ounces.

Many of us change the rear drive fluid at every oil change.

The easy way...

As mentioned in the Tech Manual... or, somewhere, just fill the FD to the bottom of the threads in the filler hole. And, thats a lot easier than all the measuring. :D

True...but measuring prevents those fun little over-fill spills.

Or you could do this and not worry about Joe's overfill issue either. BTW, this came out of the HOW also.
