Default filling diff

What do you use, or how do you fill up the differential after changing the fluid.

You can get some sucker pumps at NAPA or AZ.

If not, then the slim tall Mobil one oil bottles with the tapered nipples on them- Put a peice of clear hose on the end from home depot, and squeeze till your hearts content

I'll check that out. I want to make sure I can fluid back in there before I go draining it.

pull the cover off of the diff to drain it and on the pass side of the pumpkin there will be a little plug that a 3/8 ratchet will fit into. pull the plug out and fill untill oil comes out of the fill hole and that is it.

I found the plug, getting fluid in there was the real problem. I'll look at Auto Zone like GSLS1 said, and see what they have to offer me.

I have 2 different gear lube pumps (kinda like the pumps on a bottle of "Go-Jo" hand cleaner) that you screw into the bottle and use a hose to pump fluid up to the diff or transmission. Try your local parts store and ask for a "gear lube pump". I bet they can fix you up for under $10.
