Ford rear end lube

1993 Ford F150, 5.0 Ltr, 4WD, 187,000 miles. there does not apear to be a drain plug on the rear end differential. I know that some models were made this way, so I'm just checking. there is a plug on the front side of the differential about midway from bottom to top, on the drivers side of the drive shaft. Is that the filler plug, and if so, is that the level to which you fill the unit with fresh fluid?

There is no drain plug you must pull the cover.Fill to the bottom of the fill hole that you have already found.

that's just what i thought, thanks. the manual recommends using some RTV sealant before you reinstall the cover, is there a gasket to replace as well?

If they recommend RTV chances are that IS the gasket. Felpro also likely lists a gasket for it too.
