Here is the back story. I have little choice but to leave this outside and tarped. Two winters ago, it would not lift. I stuck a magnet heater on the diff, and it started working. There was no emulsification, and I figured I had picked up a bit of water that froze somewhere it should not have been.

I ran it the following summer with no issues and no emulsification. Last winter I noticed it was starting to emulsify, but I had no operational issues.

I used it to grade the driveway once this spring, and no issues other than the emulsifcation.

The fluid has always appeared clear and golden. It is now a golden emulsification, but everything still works. I thought I would drain it, hose it out with the brake cleaner, refill it and try to come up with a better storage solution.

My main concern was any water/emulsified oil left after draining it.

I do not have the time to tear it apart. I was hoping that clean fluid and a better storage solution would head off future problems.

NAPA in town has the mineral oil. I may flush it once or twice with that.
