I can't get the plug in the third member out to set it. In the past I've always just added 2 quarts or reused the old stuff.

So what would be correct for a brand new rearend that's totally dry? 2 quarts, 2-1/2, 3, or other?

Also can I, or do I need to use friction modifier with a detroit locker? The old rearend had friction modifier, but that's because I had run a traction lock at one time.

Mike,

5 pints, or 2.5 quarts.
No friction modifier needed with a detroit, there aren't any clutches.

Two quarts max if you have an old style tapered tube (like mine) housing. Those won't hold 2.5.

OK,

Fill it to the bottom of the inside of the axle tubes.

While we are on the subject, if the car is race only and has a spool, how thin of oil can you use? That 80W90 seems way to thick to me?
