I've searched various forums and it would appear that a 66 C10 rear differential holds 3 1/2 quarts of oil.

I have just changed my rear axles and on re-assembly I can only get 1 1/2 litres of oil in to mine.

The filling plug seems low and I cant see any other way of getting oil in, photo attached.

I would not worry about what the book says about this... Pull the plug and fill till it starts to run out and put the plug back in. You'll be just fine. There is a way to put in more but it is not needed.

Rear in fill

I ran into this problem before. I attach a small hose to the bottle nipple then lift the bottle & squeeze the bottle, away works for me.fahne19
