LEVEL CHECK



This check is only required on models through 1973; later models are permanently lubricated.

  1. Clean the area around the filler plug.
  2.  
  3. Remove the filler plug. The level of lubricant should just cover the worm gear.
  4.  
  5. If it is necessary to add lubricant, use SAE 90 Gear Oil. In extremely cold weather use SAE 80 Gear Oil or dilute SAE 90 Gear oil with a small amount of SAE 10W engine oil to decrease steering effort.
  6.  
  7. Install the filler plug.
  8.
