Hello all and HELP!!!

I'm getting onto the rear of my SUMO, thought id, start by cleaning up th diff and giving it ti a good paint! looks ok, no leaks etc, turn fine too.

Only problem i turned it upside down to clean the bottom!!!
and before i knew it, diff oil was poring out of a small hole in the top!!! :(

Ive checked in the car manual both for the donor car and sumo book, but i cant find out what lead or tude or what goes into the diff at the top and why etc?

please help!

thanks

i suspect if its anything like the jag one its just needs a vent. The oil will get hot and expand and needs room to expand or it will explode.

It is just a vent to stop pressure builging up.Normally has a piece of rubber tube about 4" long hanging down where the hole is.
