You can take the bottom bolt out of the Dif. cover to drain it. By the looks of it I would take the entire cover off to clean the inside better and replace the gasket as it is leaking anyway. Maybe clean and paint the cover also.

Thank you, I will do so.

One last question: What is the plug with the little paper for?

Hello Helmut,
Re your last question, what is the plug at the top for. I had a look at our Auburn differential today and it looks like you could use this as a fill point if if you wanted to and you had enough clearance to pour the oil in, you still need to remove the level plug though to get the correct oil level. I use a small hand operated transfer pump to fill the diff and gearboxes on our more modern cars and the same pump on our Auburn as it is easier for me to remove only the level plug and fill from there. Hope your 6-66A is running well and you are enjoying driving it.

Hello,

a few weeks ago I opened the drain plug of my diff. Inside was about 4 Litre of oil, which came out of the filler plug. Is this correct? I think this is to much.

Hello,

what kind of oil I have to use in gearbox and dif for my auburn 6-66? The manual say's that I need 600-W, Mobiloil C or Polarine transmission oil. Which sort of oil can I use today? Is it the SAE 140 or SAE 160?

Regards

Does the manual talk about "drops per minute" of something more related to viscosity than just talking 600 weight - there is such thing as 600 weight, but it is pretty thick stuff and I would be hesitant to use it in anything other than a Ford Model A or T. I had a terrible time with the 1930 Franklin with Warner 4-Speed transmission and finally took the drops per minute formula to I believe Mobil and their engineering department found me a race product - worked fabulous. Good heavy gear oils are probably available through Penrite via www.restorationstuff.com
