I just use it in the trans, it would leak out of my t-case even faster than 90w.

thanks. Whats the "best" method for re-filling the trans. Don't want to spill the $8/ qt stuff all over the place.

Yep, fluid pump. You can either use the "big syringe" (jim rose anyone?) available at most auto part places or you can get a "hand lotion pump" from NAPA that screws onto the tops of bottles. The big syringe is more effective in that it takes less pumps to fill the trans, but it is less wieldy.

get the pump, you'll be happy, just put it in a bag for next time.

MTL is great in the tranny, In the 110 the syncro for 4th is almost shot but I put MTL in and it made a noticibale difference. I didn't think you were supposed to use it in the tcase though.

MTL would pour out of my t-case too jim

LR would have a captive market for 300w if they wanted to make some cash.

If you are like me, and those dam pumps break you get an empty gear oil bottle, the ones with the spout that reduces down to a point, and get some clear hose and stick it over the end of the point. Then just stick the hose in your tranns and give the 90 weight bottle a little squeez. I have done this for both the tranns and the t-case with good results and little spillage, and I have 3 different broken pumps!

Us po'folk here in the deep south, can't afford any fancy pump things, we use the tried-and-true funnel.

The hand operated fluid pump from NAPA, "the premium one" leaked down my arm badly whenever I used it, so I purchased an oil Syringe thing from Griots Garage, but I just looked and they dont have them on the website anymore.
