So I have a question. I know you have to drain the gear oil after 300-500 miles or w/e. On stock differential covers, I believe you have to remove the cover to drain it. At this time, do you replace the differential cover gasket? IF so, I need a 2nd one. I looked on AM and Ford Parts website and cannot find just the gasket alone. I checked ebay also. Anyone know if this is needed and if so, link me to a place I can purchase one?

Unless I am overlooking it.

It's a secret

Nah there was a thread asking for volunteers that would be willing to field common "newbie questions" and help them transition into the site without getting slapped around. So I volunteered.

Ahh gotcha. I am still learning. I help when I can. But I doubt it would be enough to be considered a SME of any sort.

None of us are experts. We do like what you said. Help with what we can. Message bucko or Janet if you wanted to help. You could prob help out the 11-14 3.7 guys with common stuff.

NO GASKET Just black silicone. you put it on let it sit a while and when a touch it feels like starting to dry then install cover. We do this ever time after events and they never leak

This one is advertised as being formulated specifically for rear ends. (That's car's rear ends of course.)
· Specially formulated to withstand the harsh gear oil environment found in differentials and transfer case.
· Specialty silicone does not break down against gear oil friction modifiers.

Gotcha. I almost thought you were suggesting an enema.

Gear Kit came in the mail today. Ordered a 3rd quart of gear oil just in case. Dropping car off tomorrow night, and install is happening Wednesday. So I will be picking it up either Wednesday night or Thursday. Depends if I can make it after work before the shop closes.

Gears are heavier then I expected. LOL! Opened the box the gears were in and Styrofoam went everywhere! It was all busted up. Thankfully the gears were ok.

And I found this on the internet. Nice read-up: http://www.huntsvillecarscene.com/sh...#axzz3bqPzCWhB

I called that shop before and was told $600 for labor. Its good to hear your getting a good deal on labor. I hope to get gears as my next mod I'm curious to see how it goes.

Well, if you call again, say Kevin Cook referred you and maybe they will match the price. $150 is a good chunk to save. Doubt it will get me anything nor do I care. I just figure they would know we spoke and you are aware of my pricing.


Wait a sec, have you ever cruised through the Cedar Park area recently? I saw a Mustang just like yours a couple of weeks ago. Got right next to me and hung with my for about a block. (not racing, just cruising)

Do yourself a favor and get the Ford racing diff cover. In the long run it will make fluid changes much easier.

I will but not at this time. SUPER broke. Only reason I dug in to savings for the gears is because a friend is paying for the labor.

Now DO we have to change the gear oil after 500 miles? Or can I do it mid July when I can buy the new differential cover?

I haven't changed mine yet. Its been 800 miles or so. The palce that did mine said it wouldn't be the end of the world if you don't do it at exactly 500 miles. Ill be doing mine very soon.

Ok. I have a trip coming up in a few weeks so I will probably have about 2000 or so miles on mine before I refill the gear oil. I won't be drag racing it either so hopefully I should be ok.

my shop charges 450 for labor, plus parts and fluids, and we are a national chain.

What shop? I would spend the difference driving to Florida. LOL

Wait, when you say plus parts and fluids, is that including or the customer provides those? If Customer provided, then I am getting a similar deal.

Kevin, did you buy the axle seals? My installer always recommends doing them after taking out the axles. They aren't that expensive and at this point you might just want to get them...

Socal - I was not aware about the axle seals. My car has 9k miles on it. I am too broke right now even for that. lol. And my appointment is tomorrow so I wouldn't get it in time anyways. If the shop says I NEED them, then I will figure something out while they have the car.

Lol, ok gotcha. My car had just under 10,000 on it. He said sometimes taking it apart they get ruined. I just figured for less than 40.00 it was worth it. Hopefully you wont need them.

We rarely do axle seals to be honest. As long as you don't bugger them up pulling them out you should be okay.

Also, kevin, i would call our closest store, but we don't deal with certain products we can't install them .

I asked the tech who is doing my install. He said with only 9k miles, I won't need new axle seals. Hopefully that stays true.

Again, as long as he doesn't mess them up when pulling the axles, you should be okay... Front start to finish, he should only be in the axle for 3 hours tops. He should honestly have more time in racking it up then getting the chunk out of the axle lol.

You should be totally fine bro. When i asked about a gear kit they said not necessary as my car had only 10k on it at the time, and that id be replacing new parts with new parts, unless something happened during the install process. Your gears with your kit and some yummy RP should be all that you'll need. Be nice to her for the first 200 miles, then let her loose and enjoy! 27k now and quiet as a library lol.

The tech told me some of his customers never even flushed the fluid after 500 miles or so after the install and turned out fine. So I might be ok to go till the end of July so I can do that and swap the differential cover.
