Yea, most people fill it with 2 quarts and call it good. Although, I am not sure of the actual capacity according to the specs. I can get almost 3 in mine with the case being clocked flat. I don't think the over fill is necessary though, the gears do a wonderful job of circulating the fluid throughout the case.

My problem is that mine is mounted flat, and if I fill it to the fill hole, it pukes gear oil BADLY. Just been trying to find the right amount to put in there.

Mine currently has 2.5 in it now and it has yet to drain out the hose. I was going to put some more in but have just been too busy. I may just call it good and leave it.

Same problem. Mine leaks out the rear output seal. Toomuch fluid????
( I also thought I would be smart and put that super thick Lucas oil stabilizer in the case with a little gear oil. I think that's what screwing up my speedo!!!
Also too lazy to take it out!!!)
