Trans, Transfer, and Diff Fluids

Looking to change the trans, transfer, and diff fluids. I'd like to go synthetic, anyone have a link or info to types, weights, and amount needed?

thanks!

Re: Trans, Transfer, and Diff Fluids

rear diff, just fill it up till its coming out the fill plug. i pulled my leaking pan and resealed it, and mine took about 3 1/2 quarts. royal purple 85/140? or close to that, with no friction modifier. "this is for a 10.5 sterling" not a d-80

mobil 1 is fine, ams, or Shaffer's. pick your poison, i'm just using dex-3/mercon dino in my ford.

Trans holds about 16 to 18 quarts when it is rebuilt i believe, or bone empty!
7 to 8 with just a pan change, and filter.

i would plan on 5 or 6 gallons so you will have some left over. and do the hoot method flush on the trans, otherwise you will just be mixing fluids. i just did the hoot on my dmax, and i used 5 gallons even. did a hoot on the ford a long time ago, used about the same. how many miles is on your trans?

i do not have a transfer case, or a ft diff on the ford, but usually you fill them till fluid is coming out the fill hole.

the ft diff should take 2 to 3 quarts. i think 75/90 is ok for the front. the t case, i really don't know, but my d max holds about 2 1/2 quarts.

Re: Trans, Transfer, and Diff Fluids

You should have a little bit left out of 4 quarts for the 10.50. Make sure it is synthetic as recommended by Ford.
