What oil must i put in the diff of a ford 4000 tractor with the oil pump for lift inside the diff

80-90 oep diff oil unless it is a limited slip diff in which case you use special limited slip diff diff oil
don't know if it is limited slip diff diff
you can check by jacking up the rear end and having a friend turn a rear wheel
by holding one wheel the other wheel will be turning in the forward direct as that is what limited slip diffs do diff do ( both drive )
other than that call your local manufacturer service center and ask

Growling from rear end on left or rite turns jeep gr ch

pull the drain plug and check for metal bits on the magnet. The only items working when changing direction is the side gears in the diff of the diff locking system in a limited slip diff. Failure is very rare for these parts unless there has been incorrect oil used in a limited slip diff. Jeep diffs use a "C" clip on the end of the axle inside the side gear and it is possible that one or both clips have become dislodged and and become immeshed in the gears

Warning light "R DIFF TEMP" what is this

This is a warning light in the diff that is telling you that the diff oil temp is outside operating parameters . It can be from low oil level in the diff , failing bearings , or simply an under inflated tyre ( flat) that is making the side gears work when they shouldn't be thereby generating extra heat for the oil

I posted about my AWD quit working on my 1990 Astro AWD.

What makes a car AWD is the fact that there is a diff in the transfer case in the gear box . This allows the front diff and the back diff to operate at different speeds from the road surface just as one wheel can go faster in turns than the other side.. To say that the AWD is not working would mean that it is not going any where as the rear or the front will have no drive because the diff will not be operating as a diff.

there has to be constant all wheel drive because that is the drive train design. A diff at the front --a diff in the middle (gearbox) and a rear diff. If there is no drive to the rear diff then maybe there is a problem in the centre diff and the previous owner removed the connecting drive bit .

Tod system on 98 bighorn check light and rear wheels flashing on dash when ingnition on and stays on not pulling front diff out of ingagement vsv are ok and work no power at them but have earth on both so...

check out detent limit switches on gear box and transfer case for continuity and open circuit when pressed(on /off switch) these are feed back signals to indicate it has locked into 4x4 or 2x4, if one of these dont work properly system locks up and wont do anything any more. also check front one on diff near actuator, common problem. check actuator is working properly when vacuum applied and removed. can remove this and bench test unit,some oil will be lost when removed for bench test and you can check colar inside diff slides back and forth to lock axle.

I got a 89 2500 but the fron diff isnt working the drive shaft is turing going into the diff but the tires anrt turning i was told it some pin inside the diff

If the shaft is spinning thn theres nothing worng with the diff...(if i read right what you explained), the problem seems to be the drive shaft,probabely the splines at the front hud is gone or maybe the swivel joint has given up.
