Re: D30 Questions - Fluid what type how much?
What Brent said... till it runs back out...
I like to use a paper gasket on the Dana-30 and cork on the AMC-20, installed dry (get a couple uses that way). Some silicone gasket stuff will work but it's more work in the long run cleaning it off and starting over. Those gaskets are available at 4wd.com and quadratec.com as well as many others.
Being the cheap (beep) that I am... I just buy the 5 gallon buckets of GL-5 (85w-90 Gear Lube) at Auto Zone, Costal Brand. Don't matter what brand since I'm going to toss it into a recycle tank in a few weeks anyway.
Change the gear boxes often and get out all of the crud and water... OK, maybe I spend too much time running the creek. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
Edit: Forgot to comment on volume... Dana 30 is less than 1/2 gallon and the AMC-20 is about a half gallon. So you can change both with a gallon jug. But then there is the transmission and transfercase....
