    Inside



    Outside




    You need a 5/16” drill bit, a 1/8 X 27 pipe tap and a plug the same size. Center punch a spot 1/2 inch left of the lowest bolt centerline and 1/2 inch forward of the batwing cover. Use care when drilling to avoid nicking the ring gear, a depth "stop" on your drill at about 1 inch will work. (Slide a length of rubber tubing on the drill bit cut to the correct length.)
    If you are installing the drain plug with the differential in the car it helps to have a long 5/16” drill bit, use a ¼ drive 12 point socket with extension to turn the tap. The draining lubricant will remove any chips.

    Here are some pics of a 1/4" drain hole I put in during the 4.10 gear install I did last year. I used a anodized aluminum allen socket type picked up from the local speed shop.

    You can on a D36 but if you are doing a D44 the left side is the lowest point, the directions given will work for either.
