Observe the oil levels and then decide.

You can easily prevent the loss of oil, by means of a hose with a larger cross-section as a vent.
if the diameter is larger than it can bridge the foam bubbles,
they burst and the oil runs back at the edge of the hose.

In addition, some of them have a small expansion vessel
made of gutted gasoline filters looped into the (larger) air vent hose.
Interesting. Thanks! I'm just very afraid that I screw it up once - forgetting to check the levels and they run dry that is - and then the portal gears are all damaged.

Any idea what tools I need to check the level? I am assuming the level needs to be at the lower (larger) bolt (as the upper one is the breather) as per Truktor's post #6, 10 years ago in this thread:

I really should read through that thread properly.

Thanks again!
