      Page 227 in the SB says 1 1/2 pints. If my memory is correct, this is more like what mine took.

            I fill til it runs out the fill hole, don't matter what it takes, you obviously can't put more in than that, and is adding til it overflows filling it too full???
            You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

              It's only been a couple months since I changed both transmission and rear end fluids. I only had 2 quarts on hand and still have well over half a quart left, so the smaller amount is what makes sense to me. I am thinking it was a misprint in the later service bulletin and others have copied it. This forum is such a tremendous resource, I am just striving to make it more accurate too.

                  There are two schools of thinking on filling either tranny or rear end, fill til it drips out, or fill til yer little finger just feels it. I suspect either would work well.

                  Try and always do any lubrication fills and checks on a level surface

                the tranny takes surprisingly little

                I just fill'em until it starts to drip out, have done this on every car no matter the marque

                When I check a tranny or a diff, if the first joint of my pinky just touches, then I don't need any more.

                Maybe if you are doing a fresh fill you could measure what it took and report back and we can clear it up once and for all

                  Is the red book caster check good? I can only get 1 inch max. Steering is good, I tend to over steer at 60 on curves but that is probably just me....

                  Les Andrews Vol I discrepancy
                  by Rumbler
                  For those keeping track, the Les Andrews Mechanics Handbook Volume I has a discrepancy on rear axle nut torque. On pages 1-17, 1-44 and 1-100 it states 125 ft/lbs and in the specification card in the back of the book it states 100 ft/lbs (page 1).
