Stock YJ Diff question (rookie level)
Good morning all,
I'm helping a friend work on his 95 YJ, completely bone stock.
Noticed that the rear diff filler plug as not of the bolt-in variety, but more like a plastic stopper that had to be pried out. Is this standard, or was this someone's idea of a quick-fix? there doesn't seem to be any remenants of stripped threads anywhere. (or any threads for that matter) Anyone know of a better way to seal this hole besides gettign a new diff cover plate?
Second question. I noticed on the diffs that there is no drain plug, which let me to think, ok, you have to remove the cover plates to drain the fluid. Is there a proper gasket that goes in there, or do ya just use RTV?
Thank you for helping the rookie.
