Default rear end service

The differential as some call it. Does this need to be serviced like a regular vehicle?

If so, what is the preferred grease?

This could be a general lube question. Should that not be done? Any secrets here on what not to miss?

Sometimes I think I may haul the beast over to a local CC dealer and let them have at it. But then I sat at the door one morning for 15 minutes and they never showed.......

What year is your cart?
As you can see in the thread, it's kinda controverial about what oil to use.
CC uses SAE 30 from the factory I believe...

I don't think you have to do it all that often. Really depends on how much you drive your cart...

Problem is we got it used and it would be wise to take care of it. No telling how much it was run in the past. We buzz around the hunting club a bit and I would bet that doesn't help matters.

It's not that hard to change. There are two plugs on the left side of the differential. Remove the bottom one first, then remove the top. That will allow the old oil to drain out. Then once it's done dripping, replace the bottom plug and fill to the top until it starts coming out the top hole. Then replace top plug and your good to go!

I have no problem doing it except for I need to get to the underneath of the vehicle. Sounds more like an outboard than a car. I have done plenty of each.

I am a bit curious about the weight. I had one old Dodge Ramcharger with a 203 t case that someone loaded up with 80 wt. It was suppose to have 10w30 or 30. No HD. Well that was the end of the chain and gears in that t case. I have not been back to a express lube place since. I wish I had a lift in my yard.

I believe I would go with a straight 30. There is no heat off of a gas engine to warm the diff more to need an 80.

EDIT: But in warmer SC months, why not a 40? Just thinking...
