Differential cover testing from Gale Banks
See what Gale Banks has to say about fluid levels in a differential but it will apply to any flooded lube gear system. This is part 1 and 2, part 3 has not been posted yet.

Also dig around on the net to see what Gale Banks has to say about diesel smoke and power.

Do Diff Covers Work or Are They Just Bling? Part 1

Part 2 of the diff cover / fluid level test. ( there will be a part 3 later )

No part 3 yet, just a side bar. I'm surprised how much the oil foams up.

What's going on behind your stock diff cover?

Part 2.5 EDITED ( not really part 3 yet )

Another update.

Banks All New Rear Differential Cover – Perfecting the Design

You would also like the drag racer Warren Johnson, he came at the problem from an engineering perspective. Raised on a farm, he had the 60's NASA " We are going to the moon before the decade is out " work ethic all too lacking today.

I like his straightforward no BS style, and the ability to back it up with intelligence.


Warren Johnson talks about Bob Glidden

I'm linking this with another thread in case I don't update this one.
