Front Diff

Can somebody out there tell me how to drain the front diff on a '97, F250 PSD? I hate to sound dumb, but I can't find a drain plug or removable plate.
Thanks for any help, Floater

It has been a while since I worked on one of those, but I think the plug is between the ribs on the chunk. You may have to separate the chunk from the axle to drain it and re-fill it through the plug.

Pipe is right, you have to seperate the 3rd member from the housing to drain, I pull the axles so I candrop the center section out and inspect it but if all you wanna do is change the fluid it can be done without pulling the axles. The fill plug should be on the front of the TTB where the diff cover would be on a solid axle truck.

Sooo I'm not sure now either. On a D60 front axel you can't just pop off the diff cover to change the fluid??

You can on a D60 but I don't think his truck is a solid axle, it should have the TTB (twin traction beam) front axle, it is either a D44 or most likely the D50 the they are a little different that solid axles.

OOPS, sorry I missed that part. I didn't think there were any tricks to a straight axel.
