Ym2002d front axle capacity

Postby Coy » Fri Jun 03, 2016 6:03 am

Hello everyone.

I have replaced the fluid (80w90 gear oil) in my front axle. I drain the oil from the center differential and both wheel hubs. I reclaimed about 5 qts. The operators manual states its capacity as 3.9 qts. It also states to check fluid level by removing the plug, clean it and check the level by place the plug in the hole without threading it into the hole.
When i follow this procedure there is no oil on the dip stick. If I thread the dipstick/plug down snug on the o-ring it shows about 1/2 in the ok area.

Long explanation to get to my question. Should I add more gear oil to achieve the level as stated in the operators manual or stop with the 4 qt.?

Thanks for your assistance and input.

I had a 2002D and filled it according to the stick sitting on top of the threads. Better over full than not enough. At least that is my opinion.

Winston thanks for the reply. I guess my concern was if there would be any damage crom overfilling as it is a closed system. If u had no issues then I guess that is my answer. I realize that it is a splash lube.

I had to change both top spindle bearings on mine. I replaced them with sealed bearings as it was evident the lube did not do a good job of reaching them. If you go by the dip stick I don't think you will be over filled.
