Easy Way to Fill Differentials

The trick to refilling the differentials is to use a hand pump. Yamaha actually makes one. I order it and it works great. It is very simliar to the pumps used to change the lower unit oil on outboard motors. In fact, I think the Yamaha version is actually used on Yamaha's outboards.

Nevertheless, the trick to filling with enough diff fluid is to pump the fluid and fill to the bottom of the fill hole. Do not waste your time measuring the fluid.

I hope this helps!

Word of caution. Change in a well vented area.....the oil really stinks. And while your at switch to a good synthetic gear oil.

Thanks For The Info Guys I Didnt No About The Check Plug On The Rear Diff Untill I Read The Manual, That Wouldnt Have Been Good To Fill The Rear To The Fill Plug Woulda Blown The Seals Pretty Quick LOL.. I Ended Up Using Belray 80-90 hypoid gear oil just used a small hose an funnel it took a while but worked ok.
