    I believe your reffering to the axle housing breather. It lets the presure from heat buildup escape the axle housing. DO'NT plug it up with anything! If you plug it off the presure will then seek out another place to escape. Namely the gasket and/or the axle seals. It maybe over filled or the wrong gear oil that's causing you issue. If not you maybe having some other kind of problem that's causing the fluid to be expelled from the breather. Check everything again, make sure you added the right amount of gear lube, and the right type. Hope this helps good luck.

    When you filled the gear oil, did you use the plug on the front side, behind the yoke ? You only fill it up to that plug hole, then stop. Sounds like you over filled it...

    Just take out the side plug, let it run out. When it stops, it's perfect, and put the plug back in !
