Re: Gear Case plugs
- I was never able to get mine out in my 1997 Force. I tried 70ftlb torque, impact, heat and oil. No luck. I suspect they were put in with high strength lock-tite, and I wasn't brave enough to heat them till the lock-tite broke down. I've been using the vent tube to top up the fluid.
YUP WHAT GORDON SAID... I USE REDLINE ATF AS THE FLUID 1 QT PER GEAR BOX..

The easy way to remove the plugs is to use a 3/8 socket drive with no
socket on the end of the extension shaft.
