Default Re-doing diffs and bulkheads!

I already finished my diffs, but I was wondering how much grease do you put in the bulkheads? When I built my kit about a year ago, I kinda just squirted some in there from a tiny packet, not really knowing how much I needed, I don't think I really put much in there. Now, I'm going to be re-doing them tomorrow, and I have a bad feeling that they might be toast, hopefully not lol. I just want to do it nice and proper this time, so my question is: How much do I put in the bulkheads? Just enough to lightly coat the gears? Plastered in there? Thanks in advance.

Most grease just flings off.

I use ultra sticky Napa silicone brake pin lube, the green stuff in the pint size white bottle. I put a dab on the gears and I coat the outside of the bearings to seal them against water and dust.

Then a little puff of TAG body spray when I slide the diff case back together.

What does the spray do?
