Waggy 44 fill plug help

I am in the process of installing Dana 44's from a Waggy (offset rear/pass drop front) under my CJ, and just noticed that the fill plugs on the diffs are different. I don't know which axle the covers came off of, and don't want to under fill one, and over fill the other.
Been looking on the interweb for pictures, but every one I see seems to be different.???

Anybody help me out? Right now I have the higher located plug on the front axle.

Here's a picture of the rear. I could only get a QT in it, even with the rear elevated.


Hard to tell in this picture, but the front plug is about 1/2 way up the cover, about mid axle tube.

Fords with the high pinion 44 have the higher plugs.

one of my covers has the plug higher than the other does. One is at mid axle tube, the other is below the axle tube. I didn't notice which was which until now, and don't know if I have them on the correct axles. Need to know if the way I have them is correct. The pictures I look at seem to show them all different.

I wouldn't think you could go wrong with any of them. If your pinion is pointed up it wouldn't hurt a thing to have more capacity to keep the pinion bearings happy.


Who's to say that someone who owned the axles before you didn't swap in different covers? Just food for thought.

Could have been swapped along the way.
Im just paranoid about the rear being too low, and not getting enough oil. Especially after leaning it over, and having what little oil there is Drain into the tubes.
