I was wondering if the bgb had its own oil or did it come from the trans. ? If it has its own do i just use gear oil? 

Thanks, 

luke

Read the Manual. It has its own oil but I don't remeber what kind, the manual will tell. There is a drain plug and a fill/level plug but some have separate fill and level plugs. Good Luck, Rick

Book says 1 pint of SAE 90. 1.5 quarts of the same in the tranny.

 

There is a fill view hole, but reaching that is often overfilled.  Overfilling will result in seal leaks...the seals on these are to keep dirt out, not fluid levels in.  Many folks overfill unknowingly, then end up replacing seals, overfill, and after a while, have a 'seal issue' again.  There simply needs to be enough in there to keep it well lubed.

Yeah...youre fine. I do like to pull the plug with the front elevated and drain them good if I suspect they have original juice in them. Get the grit out and refill.
