Rear End Lube

Post by SSTOOLMAN on Sat May 21, 2016 7:40 pm

Hey Guys, what are you running for rear end lube? 80/90 conventional? Synthetic/Brand name?
I am going to pull the cover to fix a leak and I am looking for suggestions on what to fill her up with. LOL
What's a good gasket sealer?
I have a 10 bolt posi original to the car with newer 3.42 gears.

I'd use Havoline 80w90 for the oil and I'd use "therightstuff" gasket maker in a tube. Let it set up as per the instructions, then assemble. Permatex also makes some good gasket sealer.

"therightstuff" gasket maker along with a gasket or alone with no gasket?
How about limited slip additive?

Correction: Its Valvoline that I've been using. http://www.valvoline.com/our-products/grease-gear-oil/high-performance-gear-oil
I didnt use any additive last time I did mine and havent had any chattering. But you can always add it if you have some chattering.

I've been using gasket maker without any paper gaskets. They make a nice bead when you let them set up. And no possibility of any "wicking" over time.

Try it without the additive first. That just makes the clutches slip. Dont make them slip more than they have to. And if it's the original differential the clutches aren't probably too tight.
