Question about 1983 Toyota Land Cruiser
I dont believe thatford ********, ---get under the cruiser half way along the gear box on the left hand side you will find a bung plug 1/2way up the gearbox that is your filler and oil just dribbleing out that hole is the level.----at the back of the gearbox but attatghed to it is the transfer case this is made of aluminium,at the back of this slight y to the left about 1/2 way up is another bung that is the filler for the transfer case and also the level ,NOW LISTEN GOOD if you havea hose conecting the gearbox ******** to the transfer ******** thats good it just means the previos owner ,.or one of them had their head screwed on . W hat happens is this, strange as it seems the transfer case oil gets forced up into the gearbox,with the end result that the gearbox gets over full and the transfer gets low on oil,what we have been doing for many years is putting a bypass hose between the two fillers and as the oil gets forced up into the gear box it gravity feeds back down into the transfer case,,,so if you cant find the bungs but you have that hose you now know what it is all about, -------please let me know if that solves your problem, I know I am right but it is nice to be told

Wrong, the hose is take the oil from the transferred box back to the gearbox because the transferr oil seal is stuffed and allows the oil to leak into the tranfoerr box from the gearbox.

I had a little Ford car with a manual transmission. To add transmission fluid you had to remove the speedometer cable from the top of the transmission. And use the hole from that to ad fluid and the speedometer cable worked as a dip stick. Hope this helps.
