    He either did not, did it wrong, or it leaked out. Keep your eye on it

    Glad that is all it was! I dont think checking it cold and engine off vs hot and engine running makes THAT much of a difference. Could be a myriad of reasons, but it is time to enjoy!!!

    You can check me on this, but on my 13 the PTU capacity is listed by Ford as 18oz. 3.5qts sounds like a bit much.

    It’s .56 quarts. So you need 1 quart

    That's a crazy small amount of lubricant for a gearset that is always spinning. Harley's take more than that. Ouch

    3.5 quarts to top off the TRANSMISSION fluid I believe, not the PTU fluid.

    Sounds about right (for PTU). I've "refreshed" mine twice and still some (4-6 oz) left in the qt. bottle of Royal Purple.
    Obviously, not all the old was removed each time. Mine has no drain plug.

    No drain plugs on 2010-12. That 2013+ got it was likely a happy coincidence with the introduction of the Interceptors.
