Universal joint
« on: September 19, 2018, 07:07:55 PM »
Hi Everyone I have a 74C 10 and my question is when I pull the driveshaft out how much fluid is going to come out of the transmission and also I might as well change the pinion seal because it spraying and Id like to know how much fluid is going to come out of the differential Im not very good at mechanics but I am good at watching YouTube videos and fixing things Any input would be appreciated thank you

The transmission holds most of the oil in the pan, so you might lose a quart or so.

The differential should not leak if at all because the fluid is usually at or below the center line of the pinion gear.
