Question How/where to fill 37 gearbox?

Just finished up my 36 to 37 gearbox swap and ready to fill my gearbox, assume one of the nuts shown in the attached pic is the fill location? Can I melt/heat up some cornhead grease and put it in a syringe to inject in to the fill hole?

Cant imagine its takes very much?


(in hindsight, filling the box prior to mounting in the frame would have been easier)

The nut with the star under it is the adjustment. The other one is the fill.

I use some grease similar to the cornhead grease and just use a grease gun to squirt it in there. Just put the end of the gun into the hole and pump (no pressure, just splurging in).
