i always wait 5-10 minutes. a friend fills it in directly after he attached the diff cover.

gasket

Just curious why no one buys a gasket there only like $4-5 and no wait and no leaks for sure, seems like permatex would be a headache to clean up next oil change, just my thought.. I just bought Solid Differential covers that came with RTV, however i think im going to save it and buy a gasket..

I'm not sure which gasket you are referring to for $4-5 bucks, but I put on a Lubelocker ($15) when I installed my Riddler cover and I'll never go back to RTV. No mess, no scraping, no waiting, and apparently they are reusuable.

The only gasket available is the Lube Locker gasket and they cost $15ea. They are definately worth it though. I have them front & rear and have changed fluids mainy times and still using same gaskets.

It's either Lube Lockers or RTV for the choices.
