2004 WorkHorse W-22 Front Hub Oil

I just noticed yesterday that my right front hub oil is low. The fill cap (I guess that's what it is) was loose and there wasa oil on the wheel under the wheel cover. Can someone help me with the type of oil I should use? What's the center rubber plug for? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me with this.

The screw-on "cap" is the DRAIN (only). remove the rubber plug to avoid over filling the hub when you add 75W90 SYNTHETIC gear oil. you don't want the level to be above the bottom of the plug hole, which is "why" it is the fill hole and the cap is the drain hole.

The cap is on top, what do you do suck it out? Does it have SYNTHETIC from the OEM?

My book says to use 90W GL-5 Gear Oil.

WCC filled the hubs with synthetic gear oil. I don't know if you can find a single grade synthetic, but use whatever you want. The screw on cap magically becomes a drain hole if you rotate the tire.

I believe most oil filled hubs just call for 80w/90 gl5 gear oil, you can use that or full synthetic or synthetic blend, I use the synthetic blend and change it annually.

Had to laugh when I read my post. Was 75/W90. Thanks for your help.
