Fill it until it runs out the fill plug is the rule of thumb

What year is this engine? and ci

From this chart - I think you may be misreading the number - 3970010 is possibly the actual number: Which makes the engine pretty old 68-72 350 V8 - 4 bolt main. I included past this number so that you can see that the number you posted doesn't actually exist. And thus my conclusion that the 9 is most likely a 0.

How to change rear axle bearings on F-150

To change your rear axle bearings on a Ford F-150 the first thing that you need to do is block your front tires and support the rear end on jack stands. You will then need to remove the tires from the back also. You can pretty much start any 1 of 3 places, either tire or the differential(is the round container that both axles run into). I would start at the differential so that all the gear oil can run off before I get back there. You will need a 10mm socket to loosen the bolts on the cover of the differential. Loosen the top bolts but do not remove yet, then remove all lower bolts so that oil drains into a receptacle. Keep the top bolts in to keep the oil from gushing out every where. when done draining you can take them out and remove cover. While thats draining move to the rotors(where the wheels bolt on). You need to remove the caliper which is where the brake pads are held to stop truck. To remove calipers,you have to remove two bolts 1 at top of caliper and 1 at bottom. After you remove those bolts you can remove it from the rotor. Next, remove the rotor itself(if rotor sticks apply some rust buster to loosen up parts and maybe a little heat( i stress little because you could damage parts) NO BEATING on rotor, unless you want a bigger problem than you started with. After removing the rotor on both sides of truck return to the differential. Now that oil has all drained remove cover and look inside. You will see 1 big gear wheel that turns a little group of 4 littler gears. You need to take the fat metal pin that is in between those four little gears out. To do that you will need to remove the small bolt that is in the top of the pin. If you can not see the bolt or you do not have access to it, you will need to put truck in N so you can spin the gears around until the bolt is accessible. When you get the pin out, you may have to spin gears again to remove pin completely. Now that the pin is out you will need to push the axles in, they should slide in about a quarter inch or so. Now if you look where you just removed the pin from, you will see your axle end. In order to be able to pull it out you need to remove a C shaped washer from the end of the axle. You can use a pair of needle nose but since its so slick in there from oil I just push it off the back with a screwdriver or something like that. Now you can remove axle. Just pull the end of the axle(where tire attaches) straight out from truck. Finally to the point of this How to. The bearings will be sitting just inside the metal tube you just removed the axle from. First you need to deal with the grease seal that sits right in front of the bearing that needs replacing. Use a slide hammer believe me you dont want to attempt this job without 1. You can usually borrow 1 from your local parts store.Remove old bearing and seal with slide hammer and insert new bearings and seals. Now you are ready to put it back together. Don't worry putting together is just following these steps in reverse. Don't forget to refill gear oil when you are complete, and anti slip. <br />

Shaft removal

The differential cover has to be removed to drain the oil from the differential. The cluster gear pin has to be taken out to get to the C-clips that hold the axles in. Try to position the carrier assembly so the retaining bolt to the cluster gear pin is on the top near the back of the differential. Remove the retaining bolt and the pin should slide right out. Take care not to rotate the the ring gear because the cluster gears will fall out and they are a little hard to get back in. Reverse this procedure to put it all back together. I hope this is helpful. Good luck.

How2 change rear axle bearings and oil seal 3rd Gen Camaro

You must remove the rear cover of the differential and then remove the bolt that pins in the center pin that the pinion gears are mounted on, then push the axles inward and remove the "C" shaped clips that retain the axles in the gear carrier. The axle bearings are pressed into the axle tubes and you need a special tool to remove them, this goes for the axle grease seal as well. You will need to buy this tool kit on line or locally for more money.. Go to this LINK

Have a 1996 camaro SS speed. i have replaced the rear end and filled it with mobil 1 rear end fluid with the limited slip additive and it whines at around 70 mph and also vibrates pretty bad.

There are bearings in the rear diff that make a "whining" noise it can be repaired by replacing the bearings. Here is how its done;

1. Jack up the rear end and support if correctly with jack stands.
2. remove the wheels and expose the axles
3. remove the differential cover and drain the differential
4. rotate the main gear inside and expose the take down bolt. (8mm)
5. remove the take down pin in the spline drive. 8mm nut
6. remove the axles and remove the main gear. then take out the bearings.
7. replace the bearings and reinstall the components in reverse order.
8. refill the differential.

How do you replace the rear axle seal?

Its easiest to buy a hanes manual for this vehicle for this repair. Here goes. Remove the tire and wheel. Remove the drum if drum brakes or brake caliper and rotor is its disc brakes. remove the cover on the rear differential. remove the small bolt that holds the lock pin in place. slide the lock pic out of the spider gears. **its very important not to let the ring and spider gears turn at this point or the spider gears will fall out of the carrier. Once the lock pin is removed then go around to the axle where the tire was and push it in (toward the rear end) as far as it will go. Go back to the differential and remove the retainer clip (looks like a big "C") from the axle shaft. You can now pull the axle completely out of the housing. At this point you will be able to see the axle seal and the wheel bearing located behind the seal. Carefully remove the old seal (be sure not to damage the wheel bearing) and install the new one. You can then put everything back together. Make sure to refill your differential with oil when everything is back together. check your owners manual for the exact gear oil that you need because these cherokees can use different types depending on the model and towing capacity.

Clanging noise rear and rear don't pull

The axle probably lost a keeper ring on the inside of the differential and the pieces may be going through the differential and ring&pinion gearing making the noises you hear. You will need to drain the oil out, find the broken pieces, and inspect all gearing for broken/damaged teeth, and for any noisy bearings. Flush the case out with cleaning solvent. Re-insert the loose axle after cleaning and inspecting it well--especially the interior end. Replace the keeper (new) on the axle end inside the differential spider gearing. Inspect the brakes on the loose axle side for any oil deposits and for any damage that might have been caused when the axle came out. If the differential is badly damaged, it might be cheaper to find another rear end in a wrecking yard. Hope this helps!

Trying to find out how much oil the Triton V-10 takes when I do my oil change? I cant seem to find it or anyone who knows

It should be listed in the owners manual, but because of different oil cooler setups you may have to do the change yourself and add oil until the correct level is established..... for the first oil change.
Most likely 7 liters,but start with 5,run the engine to fill the oil filter,let it sit for 5 mins and recheck and fill to full.
Note the amount needed for next time.
