well thats the dirtiest oil ive ever seen
it was BLACK, and there was black goey stuff all around the walls, and beads of water on the gears, i didnt find any metal chips though!
im really glad i was able to get the cover off,
now to do the rear one, i am not excited about doing it at all, on the rear 8 of the bolts are seized up, they're currently soaking though, hopefully they'll come out
anyways, thanks for the help

|bluvikng||The easiest way to get all the gunk out, is to use disc brake cleaner. It also evaporates very quickly. It also does a very good job of breaking down the gunk, from the metal parts.|

|AzTJ||clean it up really good. Spray it with cleaner you mentioned, whipe out the gunk you can get to and let dry for a litle while then you should be good to go.|

Gunk inside Diff
I got my diff cover off finally, anyways, this is the first time that the diff fluid has been changed in my 1955 Cj5 :chair: , dam po, anyways there is a lot of gunk and some beads of water on the gears, is it okay to spray it with some of the engine/grease/oil cleaner stuff i have and clean it out a little bit. Or should i just put in the new gear oil, and in a week change it again? i would rather not have to struggle to get the cover off in another week though.
