Not that you need one...but to give an idea instead of siphoning the fluid you can just drain it.
on passenger side of the anglegear. boxVery cool. Dumb question: where's the fill plug? (tells you I've never looked at my angle gear....)
nothing big just make sure you drill the hole perfectly straight...drill out, smooth out around the drilled hole, tap out the threads to your liking size drain plug.Interesting! I Like. How'd ya do it?
oil pan would get snagged before all that.Great idea but...
edit: I just thought of something... How does this look from the underside of the car, at a shallower angle? I'd be afraid of snagging the plug on a speed bump or something if it hangs down too low.
I have 42K now and I changed once at 32k when I bought the car...but hey, some owners change the gear oil when they replace the anglegear box... but if you don't feel comfortable doing it then you should not drill anything...it is not that big of a deal siphoning it out and you still have to put the new fluid in the same way.How often do you change your fluid?? i mean its a great idea but im hard pressed to drill a hole in the bottom of my awd unit.
I would like to do that...if you ever do, can I see some pics?I was planning to do the same on my AOC & rear diff before I put new one in place.
And it would be so cool to re engineer the AOC and add additional oil pan which would act as an oil cooler and then I'd be able to fit a sensor for oil viscosity and low AOC oil level... Hmmm sexy!
I bought myself a second hand AOC and rear diff and I plan to swap it next time I come home, in about a month. I'll share my knowledge in SS spirit.I would like to do that...if you ever do, can I see some pics?
