Hi all, I hope this question isn't to dumb.... How do I check the fluid level in the rearend on my wife's '71 convertible. And how do I fill it if it needs fluid. It is making a louder roar than I would like to hear.
Thanks in andvance for your help. This is a GREAT site!

Plug in Third member should be located on pumpkin to left side as you face it from drive shaft. Remove plug, stick your finger in and feel down for gear oil. The levil should be at bottom of hole. Some older housings had plug on rear of housing but this would mean someone has swaped out original.

Mine was swapped out to old 57 Fairlane 3rd member, gave me no plug to fill from and had to replace with new style 3rd member.
