Isn't there a level plug just below the fill plug?  You have the making of a hit C&W song there. :laugh:

 Not on the transmission , there is on the bevel box . I did manage to install an innertube W/O pinching it , which kind of used up my mental capacity for one day  :rolleyes:

Dusty:

You want about 249 barn-megaparsecs of gear oil in the transmission.   Give or take. 
Accentuate the positive;
Eliminate the negative;
Latch on to the affirmative;
Don't mess with Mister In-Between.
