    Don't know yours specifically, but normally you just fill a diff up to the level of the plug.

    is it empty?
  4. Buy yourself about 3 or 4 of those quart jugs, that should get you close. You may end up going back after another or you may have some left over. Going back for another isn't that big a deal and if you have some left over it isn't that big a deal either it doesn't spoil and you are young enough to won another car in your lifetime.

    Thats the way I was always told to do it, if it's level with the hole your good to go.

    As they said, fill until it runs out the filler hole. A fluid change usually takes between 2 and 3 quarts.

    Capacity is 4 pints

    multi purpose gear lubricant is used for all rear axles and SAE 90 is recommended for up anything above -10°F

    All this is per the 64 Valiant factory service manual, I drug it out just to get you specifics. :) Hope it helps you out. But typically they are just filled up until they begin to drip from the fill hole.
