    My 75 pickup is more than dew for a gear oil change in both the differentail and transmission. I already know what kind of gear oil to use for the both of them, but my question is the ammounts. I don't have the original owners manual of the truck, so i dont know the specified amount that is needed... Anyone got an idea of how much is needed?
