Hello,

where do I have to fill in oil into gear box and diff?

When do I know, that there is enough oil inside?

The car is the auburn 6-66A.

Normally, the level should be up to the filler plug on both. It's a square plug on later Auburns

I'm not sure on 6-66A Auburn but on many cars such as 35-36 Auburn the fill plug on the diff. is different than the level plug. The level plug is a little less than half way on the rear cover. If you fill to the fill plug the diff. lub will come out the axle tubes all over your brakes.

Hello Helmut,
As the others have advised, the filler plug is what you use to get the correct fill level on the early gearbox and diff. I recommend you contact the ACD museum for a copy of the owners handbook for a 6-66A it will be a great help to you for running your car. The photos are from the 8-77 handbook though I believe they are the same for the 6-66 A.

Thanks for your answers.

My diff has no drain plug, but there is a hole in the bottom of the diff.

Today, I watched my diff.

I opend the filler plug and some oil came out of the diff. But I don't see anything like a drain plug. To refresh I have to open the open the back plate of the diff, where the filler plug is?
