Default Rear differential oil

What kind/how much oil goes in the rear transmission? My cart is a 1996 DS Series. Thanks!

Hey Jake,

It is my understanding that the differential uses 10 ounces (600 cc) of 30W non-detergent oil...

Since when is 10 ounces equal to 600cc?

Really! I come up with a teense over 20oz! I also use EP90 in mine. It gets really hot here and when it's below 40F in the Winter, I don't use my cart anyway! For you guys where it's cold, 30w should work fine! Actually the " EP " stands for " extreme pressure ", which is why it is used with gear driven units,ie, differentials.

Oil is for the bearings more than gears, lighter would be better.

Hey Delagem thanks for the heads-up.

I never questioned the information I copied from another thread and since I haven't opened the differential yet it wasn't an issue.

I checked into it and 10 ounces is equal to only 295.735cc and it would take 20 ounces to equal 591.470cc, (21 ounces comes out to 621.044cc).

I just figured once I drained the diff, any major difference in fluid volume would be evident. Correct me again if I am wrong, but isn't the differential filled through the vent on on the upper-rear side of the case..?

Thanks for any assistance you can offer.
