For a completely empty pumpkin, how much 600 Wt. should be put into it after reassembly?

I'm assuming it doesn't matter what year, or where the drain plug is located.

600W is fine for a standard rear axle, but if you have Ruckstell use SAE 90. On the later cars you fill to the level of the plug, but on the older cars you fill about 1 inch below the plug. You can tell which one it is by noting the earlier axles have the filler plug just about half way up but the later ones have it about 1 inch below half way. Be sure to check where the plug is because the rear axle could have been replaced and hard to tell what year your axle was built.

Bill, the typical "guage" for the quantity is your little "pinky finger"...insert it to the first joint, bend it down as far as you can into the hole, and it should come out with a little bit of oil on the tip of your finger. That's enough. Too much and out it goes through the axle tube and into the wheel drum. Oil seal or no oil seal, it's gonna go there.

Manual says a pound and a half of gear lube which at the time was about the consistency of soft butter. "A pint's a pound the whole world 'round" so about 24 fluid ounces in a completely empty rebuild is about right. After you've run a few miles check the level again, it will be a bit low after all the nooks and crannies are filled and interior surfaces coated.

The early housings have a higher drain plug than the later ones. The change was made in 1918 I believe.
