I cant understand, or don't understand why to check N fill with that rear plug? I do understand this is down side up from the factory, but wouldn't you want to fill it from the side of the 3rd member. There is a square pipe plug there to fill it on the left side. (sitting on tractor)

 

First pic is far away to see general area, and second is the actual plug.

 

Fill it until it starts to come back out, then screw plug back in. PRESTO!

I honestly assumed everyone knew what the bulge was for and that he was talking about the drain plug/filler plug deal. I guess years of collecting cars changes ones perspective. Thanks for setting me straight!

Here are some Mopar reference resources for your records.  I have been around Mopars my entire life with tons of knowledge in the C Body (Full size) realm.  I currently have two 1968 Sport Furys in various states of repair, one of which is undergoing paint and body work then will be reassembled.

As others have said - The major identifier on the Mopar 8.75" rear end is a drop-out center section - pull the axles, unbolt the center section and remove.  Gear installation and set-up are done with the center section on the work bench.  The bolts to access the center section (AKA - pig)  are always on the front of the axle v/s the bolts on the back side for the 7.5" 8.25" 9.25" and Dana units.  The 8.75" shares many design elements with the Ford 8.8".

I hope this helps!

My '68 Sport fury was a notchback coupe, not the fastback, had a 440/4 speed and no power steering or brakes. It was like driving a boxcar!.

OK.  The bump I am talking about is not the raised portion which allows for larger gears.  I am talking about the round circular plug thingy about the size of a milk carton cover.  Chris11 showed his and Panzerguy showed his in pictures.  They both have T70s.  My later models do not have this plugy thing.  Could it be a vent?

I thought that's what you were talking about, figured everyone already knew the huge bulge, shaped like the edge of the ring gear, was for ring gear clearance! :D

I can't honestly say what that is, on later rears there was a rubber plug there to check and fill fluid.
