Ding, Ding, Ding and more dings - TST answered correctly 1st - So he gets the prize. Pretty sure I'm the only person that's ever done this - or maybe not.

BTW - gear oil makes no noise hittting the concrete floor :D :D :D

It's full now to the correct level - Much easier to do with the plug in.

I bet you're really glad it only holds 3-1/2 pints! But then again I bet 3-1/2 pints looks like 3-1/2 gallons on the floor.

Since this garage is right off the kitchen - it's a good thing my blushing bride of 37 years likes the smell of gear oil also. In this case I would not have minded missing it - Gladly, I only put around a pint in when I noticed.

Getting close now.

If you ever drop the pan on a 50 year old final drive that still has the original oil in it you may change your mind. :lol:

When I was in my teens one of our Farmall H tractors had a radiator leak we had not take time to fix, so we would fill it in the morning and drain it at night while picking corn in the late fall. I drove the other H and wagon hauling the 3 one gallon glass jugs to the field where the leaking tractor was hooked to the picker, hooked up the wagon to the hitch on the picker, and proceeded to fill the radiator, and heard a splashing under the tractor. Yup, forgot to put the drain plug in. the fields between where I was and the house, plus cattle gates at the railroad crossing meant nearly an hour delay to go back and refill the jug, so I climbed the fence and refilled the jug from the creek. Never did tell Dad about that.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I haven't done it on Eddie yet (yet) (touch wood), but I've done it more than once when changing the oil on my cars.

I changed the gear oil in the outdrive of my boat. I bought 5 tubes of Mercury gear oil. You take two big screws out of the outdrive. The manual said to squirt the oil in the bottom screw hole till it comes out the top. I put all five tubes in. When the oil came out the top I put my finger in the bottom hole. That's where the problem started. I left the screws up on the bow of the boat. There I was like the little boy with his finger in the dike. I ran for the screws but when I got back it all ran out in the driveway. :|
