Clocking Tranfer

Just got finished clocking my dana 300 and was wondering how much oil to run in it. I put 4 pints in it but was having trouble seeing what the level was. Will it take more. I tried puting a wire in the fill hole but the gears were in the way. Should I try to fill half way up the out put shaft. I want to flat tow the Jeep.

thanks Bill

Bill, I just sent you an email. I am hoping that some of the pro's can jump in here about flat towing with a filled, clocked 300...

Re: Clocking Tranfer

I would fill it until it runs out the drain plug hole. This is full in the unclocked position. More oil should be a benefit for flat towing as long as your rear seal doesn't leak.

Re: Clocking Tranfer

I assume TOM85CJ means the fill plug hole. If you do this you will end up spitting gear oil out the vent and cause excess drag in the t-case. 4 pints should be good, that's what I used. It puked out the vent for a short time and hasn't done it since.
