allowing fluid back in from where?

ive got a dana 44 empty housing if you want to look at it, its like any other solid axle ive ever seen.

drain it, refill a known amount, run it, and check later, and check real good for leaks, pinion seal, diff cover, and at the ends of the axle tubes.

its going somewhere, and youd have to do something silly to get it hot enough to vent otherwise.

silly, like running a detroit locker on the interstate..

EDIT: Dana 44, Detroit locker.
