Added More Gear Oil to Angle Drive; Quieter Now

Looking for something to do today, I recall reading awhile back that someone suggested jacking up the front so that the Angle Drive would be tilted and then adding more gear oil. I think the premise was that the quart in it, wasn't high enough to thoroughly oil the gears and bearings...or something like that.

I put in about 3/4 quart of Redline Shockproof before it started running out. So, it now has 1 3/4 quarts. Had to do some errands and drove about 30 miles, some back roads, some interstate.

The normal growly/whine as I go through the gears is now much quieter. Very pleased with the outcome.

Just hope the additional oil doesn't splash out the top air vent!

You can count me as another successful Lucas Oil Stabilizer user. I just finished my initial 500 mile service. I was having some pretty loud growling, mainly during deceleration, at about 30MPH and 10MPH. Drained the angle drive, and refilled it with 100% Lucas Oil Stabilizer (plus a little more extra in there by jacking up the drivers side). Also adjusted the belt tension and tracking. I can say I am 100% satisfied with the results, practically no angle drive noise anymore!
