67 camaro diff fluid

I want to change the diff fluid in my 67 camaro. After draining the old fluid by taking off the cover, what do I do. There is a plastic cap that goes on a plastic nipple on the top of the housing. I can pull the nipple off but I'm not sure if that's what I should do. Am I suppose to use a pump to get the fluid inside to the gears. The oil always overflows if I just squeeze the bottle. I do not have a posi. Any help?

should be a threaded plug on the passenger side of the main diff cast iron section. This is the fill / level check plug

Vent Plug

What you are pulling off is the top to the vent plug. Crosley is correct in the proper location for fill plug. You can use a 3/8 drive ratchet and 4" extension to remove it. If you have a posi dont forget to add the GM posi additive or you'll be going through it sooner than later.

Thanks for your help. I took a look at my car and it has a square protrusion (about 3/4" across flats) sticking out where the plug should be. Has anyone ever seen this before. I'm not even sure its threaded, but I imagine it has taken the place of the original plug. Does this sound familiar?

That means it was replaced in the past with a different plug, which in turn means it will probably come out much easier than the original did. Lucky you.

I have that same square protrusion on my diff. Yes, it is a threaded plug, just has a suare head on it (I have no idea why). I was able to wiggle a wrench onto it well enough to get it out.

When you fill the differential, fill it up until the fluid reaches that hole.
