View Full Version : How Much Diff Fluid Does A 12 Bolt Hold With T/a Cover?

Got a 12 bolt rear with a T/A cover. The fill hole is way above the axle tubes with this T/A cover so how much will this 12 bolt diff hold with this type of cover? I would wait till the fluild comes out of the hole in the cover but with it way above the axle tubes I would think this would not be the case since the tubes would have to completely fill with oil to be able to reach that area. I have put in three quarts so far.

I take it we are in the same boat as I can't remove the fill plug in the 12 housing, why I didn't remove the plug when I had the rear end out the car I'll never know, so I must use the fill hole in the TA cover. Anyway I was told it takes approximately 2.5-2.75 quarts. I haven't had any problems so far.

Thanks for the reply,

I found the original plug. I didnt see it at first but it would make sense since how else would you fill it with the stock cover. Thanks again.
